Apple’s augmented reality headset is expected to launch just months from now, in the second quarter of 2020.
Apple’s AR glasses have been rumored to be in development as far back as 2017, yet little is known about what they might look like or how they will work. However, a few details have leaked out about them over the years:
Apple’s AR glasses will be marketed as an iPhone accessory.
They will need to be paired with an iPhone to work.
The glasses will act as a display for the AR tech, while the iPhone does all the processing and heavy computational tasks.
The operating system that runs on the glasses is reportedly called “rOS,” which stands for “reality operating system.”
Apple will partner with third-party brands for the headset.
