Apple does not consider AR as a standalone product, such as Microsoft HoloLens or Snapclass, but instead integrates with the Apple AR device iPhone. Apple acquired a startup, Akonia Holographics, to manufacture the lenses and the company has confirmed it.
Like Apple TV’s TVOS, macOS for mac and Apple watches, “rOS” runs Apple’s AR headset.
Apple AR headset may look similar to Google Glass and rumors suggest that it may have a touch-sensitive bar on the shoulder to check volume and gesture to navigate the menu.
Apple AR device may come with a dedicated processor and software that can connect to the iPhone, but it doesn’t have to work.
The Apple AR may be launched in 2020.
