Apple working on a standalone VR and AR headset, debut by 2020

Tim Cook

Rumors have been swirling for almost five years that Apple is working on some kind of augmented reality or virtual reality wearable device.

The Apple VR/AR headset would be based on proprietary chips and could reach the market in 2020.

The reality TV star and mother of West's three children also tweeted to defend her husband's right to take the stance on Mr Trump. Ye said that he loved Donald Trump & that the two of them were "both dragon energy".

Besides the ridiculously high-res screens, the headset would also be wireless.

The tech site corroborates previously reported details on the top-secret headset such as its "T288" codename and purported use of a custom Apple chip. It's not a complete surprise-at least not the augmented reality part, which CEO Tim Cook has expressed excitement about several times in the past.

She said she had told the Home Office to take a more proactive role to help people from the Windrush generation in future. She added that there was "nothing wrong" with trying to remove people who were here illegally, according to the Guardian.

The 8K displays will make VR and AR images look more realistic.

The source claims that the T288 is still in the early stages of development. CNET says Apple is exploring 60GHz WiGig, a high-speed wireless protocol capable of transferring lots of data quickly. The Pimax 8K VR headset that made a big splash on Kickstarter last year, raising millions, will have 8K input but only 4K per eye when it will be released later this year. No separate devices; everything would be built into the box, according to the report. The box, which would be powered by a custom Apple processor more powerful than anything now available, would act as the brain for the AR/VR headset. For Apple to really consolidate AR and VR at the resolutions detailed, they would likely need a genuinely massive plan that I would be shocked to see them seek after with an AR item. Apple may announce it before the expected date or at a later one, things are not decided yet.

Asian stocks fall as Treasury yield fans economic growth concern
MISPRINT: Alphabet slid 4.6 percent to $1,024.89 after the company said ad revenue climbed, but expenses also rose. US stocks couldn't hang on to an early gain and finished mostly lower Monday as technology companies slipped.

The company, to recall, rolled out ARKit previous year to help developers design AR experiences for the iPhone and iPad, so the said devices will be aware of their surroundings and will allow users to interact with them virtually through AR. The headset which will not require any external sensor will also feature built-in location tracking sensors.
