Apple’s AR Headset

A few hints have already pointed towards an AR headset for Apple’s products, however, there now may be clearer evidence. Developer Steven Troughton-Smith has pointed out in a readme within a new release, which explains to employees how they can run AR apps on an iPhone without using the headset. So is Apple’s AR Headset on the way?

9to5Mac’s Guilherme Rambo highlighted (tweet below)  how the latest iOS 13 beta drop (Gold Master) and the iOS 13.1 beta releases containt something called Apple’s “StarBoard” system shell to run AR apps as well. Smith suggests that rendering could be done on the iPhone itself and use of an additional gamepad/motion control device.

 

Apple didn’t mention anything about AR in it’s September event, nor did they mention a new Apple TV or Ultra Wideband location Tags. However, the leftover notes could suggest that it could have been a late scratch. While it could also be something new is in the pipeline.
