The headset will reportedly run an adjusted version of Apple's iOS operating system called "rOS" (reality operating system). Apple's release of AR glasses would drive this home, but the company needs its own custom chip that can handle the graphics and computational tasks required, which will be in real-time, and something that you wear.

Apple is developing a "breakthrough" augmented-reality (AR) headset, a report said Wednesday. The company says that the AR will change the way we use technology forever in the near future. The company wants the next-generation technology to be in place by 2019 and ready to ship the following year, but its ambitious timeline could still change. Formerly software manager for Appple, Geoff Stahl, is one of the directors of the rOS department.

The product is part of several new gadgets being crafted under the T288 code name, Bloomberg said.

Investigators told KFOR that 43-year-old Patricia Spann lost custody of Misty, 26, and two other children when they were young. The DHS worker said Patricia Spann never reported that she had married her biological son in Comanche County in 2008.

"Today I can tell you that the technology itself doesn't exist to do that in a quality way", Cook said. Engineers are prototyping a range of applications, from mapping and texting to more advanced features including virtual meeting rooms and 360-degree video playback.

At the moment, Apple is testing ways to control the device including voice control via Siri, touch-based controls, and head gestures. Just as tvOS powers the Apple TV, macOS runs on Macs and watchOS runs on Apple Watches, "rOS" will power Apple's AR headset. Apple doesn't plan to sell the gadget but instead aims to use it internally to test AR apps next year. They're also working on a device similar to an Oculus Gear VR headset that uses an iPhone's screen, cameras and chipsets.

In search of a new product to make a breakthrough and surpass the iPhone, the U.S. technology company Apple is pointing in an interesting direction. The two companies said at the time that the investment was meant to support Corning's research and development as well as capital equipment needs and glass processing capabilities.
