New York Times: Goodbye iPhone, Hello Mixed Reality Headset

Eventually, there will be a time when the iPhone no longer sounds like the huge sales that Apple and its shareholders have grown accustomed to. What will be the next big thing from Apple? For years there has been speculation that some sort of augmented reality glasses will replace Apple’s iconic smartphone to become the tech giant’s biggest seller. About five years ago, analyst Gene Munster even went so far as to say that Apple’s AR glasses will eventually be bigger than the iPhone.

Apple is preparing its “next big thing”

That might still turn out to be true, but Apple is a product it’s readying for release ahead of the so-called AR Apple Glass. It would be a mixed reality VR/AR headset that would use both virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). The first creates made-up environments that you can immerse yourself in.

Augmented Reality takes an actual image and has an overlay showing the data. A great example of AR in action is the Google Map live view available for AR walking directions. The rear camera gives you a real-time overview of the road and traffic ahead while the overlay of arrows that tell you which direction to walk and other icons indicate famous places of interest near you will be walking.


Today, The Gray Lady (as The New York Times is often called) a written comment Apple is gearing up for its next big project by lining up top directors to help create video content for the mixed reality headset Apple plans to release next year. Based on the renders, the headset has a design resembling ski goggles and the product is said to have been outed in the Apple conference room in Cupertino.

Supposedly, the version of the headset that Apple releases will eventually be a standalone model that doesn’t have to be tethered to an iPhone or base station. At Monday’s WWDC, Apple is expected to showcase tools developers will use to make their apps compatible with the mixed reality headset. While the product’s operating system is called rOS for reality operating system (a name we heard many years ago), the user interface would offer hands-free navigation according to the Timewho reviewed several key documents related to the project.

Apple fans don’t seem thrilled with the company’s Mixed Reality headset

Apple fans don’t seem too thrilled to add a mixed reality headset to the company’s enviable ecosystem. These users may be waiting for the AR Apple Glass which is supposed to be similar to Google Glass. Personally, this writer has always believed that the idea behind Google Glass and Apple Glass is to provide wearers with the same data and experiences that smartphone users can receive on their phone, but delivered through their glasses instead of a screen.

This seems to be what Google had in mind with its Project Glass video that it released worldwide on April 4, 2012. Apple Glass is still a few years away, and Apple may still be wondering what kind of reception such a device could give it. You may recall that Google Glass users were accused of taking photos of subjects who didn’t know they were being photographed, earning users of the device the unflattering nickname “Glassholes”.

Carolina Milanesi, Technology Analyst at Creative Strategies, Technology Researcher, said, “This is the next frontier. For Apple, this is a new computing experience and an opportunity to engage consumers with a device and new experiences that build on what they’ve done. with content.

The big question is whether audiences will feel that the iPhone experience can be extended or enhanced by always wearing a headset or a pair of AR glasses. Don’t forget that the headphones shouldn’t be released until next year, which will give you plenty of time to say goodbye to your iPhone.
