Apple AR Headset With Custom OS To Come By 2020”

The Californian company is working on a headset with inbuilt screen and native operating system, and hopes to have the technology ready by 2019, Bloomberg alleges. The development timeline is very aggressive and could still change, said the people, who requested anonymity to speak freely about a private matter.

The main difference in Augmented reality and virtual reality is their effect for the user.

The in-house chip would have a similar design to what's now in the Apple Watch, which allows for more components in a smaller area.

Since the release of Apple's iOS 11 mobile operating system on September 19, over 1,000 AR apps have been approved for the iPhone and iPad.

Apple's untethered headset would have a newly designed chip and operating system, according to Bloomberg's sources, though those details could change.

Apple's headset, instead of relying on smartphone, will come with its own display, processor and operating system, insiders suggest.

The tech titan can use what it learns from Apple Watch when developing future wearable devices. There are considerable technical challenges with getting the display quality right, with Cook specifically referencing field of view as an area that's "not there yet".

CEO Mark Bertolini says Aetna presented Apple with a list of the top drivers of health costs and the two companies have been working together on apps that can it can use to provide incentives to make healthier choices. "Something that you would see out in the market any time soon would not be something that any of us would be satisfied with". Aetna workers are co-located at Apple's offices in Cupertino, he said, as the company looks to have a variety of apps ready in time for the January 1 start of the Apple Watch pilot program. But while we wait for a hardware announcement, Apple will reportedly release a new version of ARKit next year that will have more advanced tracking abilities.
