The news: A trademark for an unreleased operating system that will likely power Apple’s AR/VR has been discovered by Parker Ortolani.
- A trademark under the name of “realityOS” was submitted in December of 2021 and is set to be filed worldwide on June 8, 2022…coincidentally 2 days after the headline WWDC keynote on June 6
- More and more evidence of an unveil of Apple’s realityOS operating system is mounting as we progress throughout the year, suggesting that at least the software for Apple’s headset could debut at WWDC in just about a week
Sam’s take: Well this is just fascinating, isn’t it? The thing is, I’m really split about what it means exactly. My bets are that we’re going to see a bunch of reveals for augmented reality in some fashion this year…even if it isn’t the exact headset. But it could happen, right? Perhaps Apple gives a teaser of the headset before a full unveil later this year. Or perhaps we just get a glimpse into realityOS (rOS). It’s going to be an exciting week ahead of dub dub!
