Apple RealityOS

According to the real Bloomberg report, the OS is based on iOS. The report referenced the rOS in 2017. Apple prefers to use the OS shorthand for different OSs such as iOS, watchOS, tvOS, iPadOS, and macOS. Geoff Stahl was an Apple veteran who belonged to one of the directors. However, after a few months, analyst Ming-chi Kuo claimed that the first AR headset of Apple is going to arrive later this year. Like, M1 Mac, it comes with a similar level of computing power.

Kuo recommends that the headset is going to be a standalone platform. Apple RealityOS may be a codename that has been used by Apple for the last five years. But according to the Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, the codename is “Oak” for the operating system. However, as per the continued references, you get to know that it is actually a project which is key to its headset.

Apple RealityOS Report from Bloomberg:

As per the information from Bloomberg, the Apple headset might not be available in the market until 2023. Apple has decided that they are going to reveal the news at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, known as WWDC. According to the reports, Apple is experiencing different issues such as overheating, cameras, and software. These pushes back the headset reveal. However, it might happen that Apple is willing to get the software development kits for realityOS before its debut. It was 2017 when we got to know from Bloomberg that Apple has been working on a new operating system ‘rOS’ or ‘realityOS’.

Report from 9to5Mac:

According to a report from 9to5Mac, we can receive the new OS in 2022. As per the details from the report, the operating system will give Power to the upcoming AR/VR headset produced by Apple. References of ‘realityOS’ are available in the App Store upload logs and the open-source dyld repo. It indicates that the headset will come with its App Store. Here, the third-party developers are capable of sharing augmented reality and virtual reality apps.

References from a Twitter user:

You can find the references to a Apple realityOS highlighted by Twitter user Steve Troughton-Smith. This new operating system is helpful for the developers as they test apps for the Apple AR/VR headset with the help of this. The headset is now one of the products that are popular among people.

Apple RealityOS Features:

  • The Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo gave additional information about it. Kuo gave the power adapter details of the headset. As per the report from Kuo, the headset is going to use a 96W power adapter which is useful for the 14-inch Apple MacBook Pro. 
  • Besides, he also gave information about the device that it is going to be compatible with two processors like a 4nm chip and a 5nm chip. 
  • It is expected that the device is going to have a minimum of 15 camera modules. 
  • The device will come with an eye-tracking feature, i.e. iris recognition. The expected price is going to be between $2,000 and $3,000. This product will be the same as the Oculus Quest. It has a few prototypes that are tested like external cameras for turning on a few AR features. 
  • Apple is testing the cameras to check if they are capable of tracking hand movements. Apart from this, the company is also testing software features such as a virtual keyboard. It is expected that the device is going to be available in a sleek design. 
  • The device weighs light and is comfortable to use for the user to roam around. Like tvOS that is used to run Apple TV, macOS and watchOS also run Macs and Apple Watch respectively. 
  • According to the report, it is revealed that the device will come with a three-display configuration. Apple is going to offer two Micro OLED displays and an AMOLED panel in this product. 
  • From an earlier report by Ming-Chi Kuo, it is known that the weight of the device is between 300 and 400 grams. Compared to M1 chipsets, the headset is capable of delivering better performance. M1 chipsets are used in the MacBooks by Apple. 
  • According to the rumors, the device comes with advanced sensors that are for the environment and gesture detection.

Shipment of Apple realityOS:

Usually, Apple doesn't reveal its upcoming products, but you can know the rumor around the company’s AR/VR headset. Multiple rumors have revealed some information about the device. But according to the investor Kuo, the shipment of the Apple realityOS is not going to start until the first quarter of 2023. Therefore, there will be a limited number of headsets that people can get at the time of the launch. You can see the same timeline of launching from a paper shared Display Supply Chain, DSCC by short.

The AR/VR headsets developed by Apple have been rumored for years. Apple bought the VR company VRvana in 2017 as well as the technology. Later in 2019, we got to know that a mixed AR/VR headset is going to be released in 2022 when the AR glasses will arrive by 2023.


According to the recent rumor from Bloomberg, the device is going to be delayed until 2023 for the development problems such as overheating. Whether these are the original references, the developers can get or will get access to the operating system. In recent times, the virtual Apple realityOS has got a huge demand in its market. Our earth is gradually going towards the metaverse gradually.
