Apple is going to launch rOS or realityOS for its AR/VR anytime next year.
- Apple could launch its AR/VR headset next year.
- The headset would be powered by rOS or realityOS, Apple’s native AR/VR OS.
- Apple could use EyeID or iID for its security.
Apple is likely to name its operating system for VR/AR as rOS or realityOS which is designed especially for their native headset. It would be embedded with security features such as EyeID or iID for unlocking it or for confirming online transactions. Surely, Apple has codenamed the OS as ‘Oak’.
Apple is interested in this product because it wants to focus highly on gaming, watching videos, making calls on the web in real-time, and other purposes. The headset would be able to stream content and videos from Apple TV+, giving the viewer a new environment, features and display. It could also give tough competition to Microsoft, Meta and other tech giants who have dominated the AR/VR market.
The realityOS would be having a different or a newer version of many iOS or Mac applications. It is said that the Messages would be enhanced and features like chat rooms, support for video clips, a home view, etc would be added.
It is also said that Apple is also working on a version of Maps for rOS. We are not sure how it would work on the headset but Apple could make its use differently.
As for now, we are clueless about the features in the rOS, but in the coming months, we could expect some more information about this product which is going to launch next year.
