Technology Apple's AR headset might be a sidekick for your iPhone
iOS 13 code hints Apple may be testing an AR headset
Apple's long-rumored plans for an augmented reality headset appear to be taking shape. MacRumorsclaims to have seen documentation for an internal iOS 13 build that points to work on AR headset support. They reference a "STARTester" app that can switch to a head-mounted mode, a "StarBoard" shell (a possible parallel to iOS' Springboard) for stereo AR apps and code references to special modes, views and scenes. It even references a codename for one device, Garta, that might be linked to the previously rumored T288 project. Earlier stories have painted varying pictures of what Apple is working on.
Apple's rumored augmented reality headset might end up being a sidekick for your iPhone . A report from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo on Wednesday said the company's as soon as the fourth quarter of this year in order to meet an early 2020 launch, according to MacRumors.
CNET reported last year that slated for release in 2020.
Kuo said the AR headset will be marketed as an iPhone accessory, according to MacRumors. The headset will primarily be a display, Kuo reportedly said, with functions like computing and networking being handled by a companion iPhone. This could help keep the headset slim and lightweight, more like glasses, according to MacRumors.
We're live at Apple's 2019 iPhone event!
We've finally made our way to California, and just in time, too — Apple Day is finally upon us. It won't be long now before the company reveals its trio of new iPhones, and if nothing else, we're dying to know what Apple actually plans to call these things. The iPhone 11 series? iPhone XI? Are we getting an iPhone 11 Pro Max? Why does it sound like we're talking about a late-90's graphics card? When it comes to nomenclature, the answers can't come soon enough. Of course, iPhones won't take up the entire show, and we can't help but wonder what else will get a share of the limelight on-stage today.
Apple and TF International Securities didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
Apple may launch its AR headset with third-party help early next year .
Apple could release its long-rumored augmented reality headset before mid next year. According to a note obtained by 9to5Mac, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a strong track record when it comes to Apple predictions, says the company will launch the device in the second quarter of 2020. Kuo has said in the past that Apple plans to market the headset as an iPhone accessory. It will reportedly wirelessly offload computing, networking and location-related tasks to the iPhone. In this way, Apple hopes to keep the device thin and light. Without providing additional context, Kuo adds Apple will work third-party brands to launch the accessory.
