Apple’s VR/AR Headset Software to Run ‘rOS’, Codenamed ‘Oak’
Alongside a handful of predictions for new Apple products in 2022, Bloomberg‘s reliable Mark Gurman has also shared some new details regarding Apple’s upcoming VR/AR headset software in this week’s edition of his Power On newsletter.
Codenamed N301, Apple will be announcing its highly anticipated mixed-reality headset in 2022, said Gurman. He continued that Apple’s VR/AR headset software will be called ‘rOS’ and will be codenamed ‘Oak’.
“But the timeline for that product has slipped before. Apple originally targeted 2020, and then WWDC 2021 and then WWDC 2022 for a debut. Stay tuned,” he wrote.
