Apple Reportedly Working on AR/ VR Wireless Headset With Dual 8K Displays

Vrvana’s Totem headset

Apple's Tim Cook has always been a proponent of AR technology, this is the first mention we've heard that the headset could also offer VR. The rumored VR/AR headset shows just how important the technology is to the company, following rumors that Apple has a secret team working on it. Apple could also be using one of its own chips in the T288. For reference, the HTC Vive Pro VR headset features a 1400 x 1600 resolution per display and the Galaxy S9 boasts a 1440 x 2960.

A source familiar with Apple's plans told CNET that the brand was working on a device which would blend both AR and VR technology, commonly referred to as mixed reality. According to a person close to Apple, the project codenamed T288 focuses on the development of both AR and VR headsets.

CEO Tim Cook addresses at Apple's Chicago Event.

Coming back to the headset being developed by Apple, it has been reported that it will come with a dedicated box which will be connected to it.

Previous rumors have claimed that the headset will run on a new operating system dubbed "rOS".

If we talk about the future, Augmented Reality would cover medical, engineering and more areas in the coming years. The headset will also come equipped with several fitted cameras that will actively monitor the surroundings.

Apple's new VR and AR Headset would operate without the wires.

The report further sheds some light on what a user can expect from the setup, by stating that the "box" would be powered by a custom 5nm processor that is said to be "more powerful than anything now available" in the market, and it is said to be similar to the in-house chip that would be powering the future MacBooks. In the coming years, the entire technology world will be changed with the Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technologies.

But that's still a lot of bandwidth for a wireless connection.
