A few months ago, in the middle of February, an indiscretion on the part of Manzana first let us know about realityOSAnd, of course, after all the years that we have been behind Apple’s “secret” project of creating two separate augmented reality and virtual reality headsets, it does not take a genius to understand that said sighting not only confirmed those plans, but which also indicated that the project could already be close to debuting on the market or, at least, being presented publicly.
A very interesting source of information can be found in the patents registered by technology companies since, like the job offers they publish, they provide us with a very interesting vision of where companies may be heading. And in this case, as we can read in MacRumors, patent records suggest that realityOS will be presented at the imminent WWDC 2022which will be held between June 6 and 10.
And it is that in these patents, although their presentation dates back a few months, they have the explicit indication that your international registration must take place, at the latest, between June 8 and 9that is, right on the dates on which WWDC 2022 will be held. And it does not seem that the choice of dates is casual, but rather the result of Apple finally telling us about realityOS and its plans with augmented reality and virtual reality.
And what would this mean? well what the first device with realityOS could be presented before the end of the year. If Apple presents the operating system at this year’s developer conference, we can understand that what it wants is for developers to start working on the first apps for it, that is, to populate the app store so that, once At the time of the presentation and start of marketing of the first viewer, there is already a sufficiently consistent app proposal for the device to be attractive to potential buyers.
Virtual reality is a market that, although it has been present for years, has not yet taken off, and is still of minority use. And with the economic outlook for Apple devices, it seems that the price will continue to be one of the barriersWell, as is customary with those from Cupertino, we hope that the first device with RealityOS will be, if not the most expensive in its category, then at least one of the most expensive.
