Past year at the World Wide Developer's Conference 2017, Apple talked a lot about the Augmented Reality. According to a report in CNET, the headset, code-named "T288", would tap into the iPhone-maker's own chips and is slated for release in 2020.

Apple's Tim Cook has always been a proponent of AR technology, this is the first mention we've heard that the headset could also offer VR.

Apple is working on mixed reality glasses, according to a new report from CNET.

At the same time report also cites a person familiar with the development who says that Apple might also decide not to go ahead with its plans and could scrap it at any moment in its development.

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

It also ruled out a CBI probe and said it should be circumspect while transferring it to another agency. The girl from nomadic Muslim herder family was grazing the cattle when she was kidnapped in January.

The development of augmented reality is high on the list of priorities for Apple, as previously revealed by CEO Tim Cook.

The advancements that take into account 8K pictures for every eye would likely must be microLEDs and, at that resolution, they'd be restrictively costly right now and almost mind-bogglingly control hungry.

For comparison, the HTC Vive Pro, the latest high-end VR headset on the market, has a resolution of 2880 x 1600. Nonetheless, the focus on a technology that can change how we interact with things in the future allows Apple to think beyond the iPhones which are the main money spinners for the brand. The headset which will not require any external sensor will also feature built-in location tracking sensors.

Apple's new VR and AR Headset would operate without the wires. The headset will purportedly use an 8K display for each eye and will not be tethered to a computer or smartphone.

Well, the only idea from the rumors sounding very realistic here is running the headset as standalone using a wireless connection to a dedicated box. The box, allegedly powered by an Apple-made 5-nanometer processor, will be able to transfer data to the headset over 60GHz WiGig and offer for a cordless experience.
