Microsoft, of course, is already well ensconced in the AR/VR world, having launched a v1 HoloLens a year ago as a $3,000 Developers Edition, and has talked about a HoloLens version 2, with built-in AI processing, but that device apparently won't ship until 2019. The company wants to have the headset's core technologies completed by 2019. Well, Bloomberg is out with a fresh report this morning that corroborates that potential timeline, saying that the Mac maker is indeed targeting 2020 to ship the forthcoming AR product, while the underlying technology should be ready around 2019.
It's no secret that Apple is bullish on AR and has been working hard on it for the past few years. Apple isn't the only company working on the technology. The headset will have its own display and use a custom system-on-a-chip, just like the Apple Watch now does.
All signs point toward Appleramping up its push into the AR sphere. It'll also use a new operating system built out of iOS called rOS, short for "reality operating system", according to Bloomberg. The creators of the headset will be equipped with its own screen, and now it will be on the operating system rOS. Apple is said to be experimenting with a variety of different control schemes, including built-in touch pads and voice control through Siri. The tech titan can use what it learns from Apple Watch when developing future wearable devices. "The field of view, the quality of the display itself, it's not there yet".
Microsoft's primarily pushing HoloLens as a tool in the workplace, however (it costs $3000, or £2719 in the UK), while Apple's consumer-focused mindset will likely mean that its device would be pushed to the mainstream market at a more affordable price. Simply put, he said, Apple believes AR is forever going to change the way we use technology.
As with previous products, Apple isn't waiting around for someone else to create a chip capable of powering its AR headset.
The limitation today is that we have to hold our smartphone or tablet up to our face to experience AR.
Apple has already formed the engineering group tasked with making the AR headset a reality.
Finally, Bloomberg reports that Apple is gearing up to release a new version of ARKit next year that will bring a new technology called persistent tracking "that remembers accurately where a digital object was placed in a virtual space".
