Apple has codenamed its headset as T288. Although in early stages, the headset is expected to be launched in 2020. Earlier, 8K Display was one of the major features of Apple’s headset. Now, this could be one of the most powerful headsets since it runs on both Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. Meanwhile, the headset doesn’t have to get connected or tethered to your mobile phone or computer. A device with high-speed short-range wireless technology (60 GHz WiGig) called the “dedicated box” will serve this purpose. Customed by a 5-nanometer Apple processor, the “dedicated box” will also be used in Apple’s future Macs. Also, it resembles a PC Tower but isn’t actually a computer.

Furthermore, users need not specifically install special cameras to detect location. All these features are built into Apple’s headsets. However, it is unsure whether Apple’s AR VR Headset and Apple’s rumored glasses are one and the same. Although Tim Cook stated that Augmented Reality has a better future, he also accepted that Virtual Reality is a game changer when it comes to education and gaming. Well, this explains it all as to why both VR and AR are being included.
