Apple’s mixed reality headset could make headlines soon. This comes after two trademarks known as realityOS, registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), were identified right before WWDC 2022. The trademark application has not officially been filed by Apple.
RealityOS is an operating system powered by Apple’s VR/AR reality headset. It is a rumored operating system, though. The trademark application is indicative of Apple launching its long-rumored headset. Earlier this month, it followed the news that its board of directors reportedly tried out the wearable device, standard practice ahead of the public launch.
The trademark documentation references “wearable computer hardware.” It is likely to relate to the “design and development of computer hardware, software, peripherals, and computer and video games.” It is essential to focus that the RealityOS trademark has not been applied by Apple itself but rather registered by a company known as “Realityo Systems LLC.” But Ortolani says that Realityo does not seem to have any public appearance. It is a shell company used by the Cupertino-based tech company to hide its involvement.
The applications have been identified just days before Apple is about to begin its annual developer conference next week on June 6th and are listed with the deadlines of June 8th, indicating that the headset could be unveiled.
WWDC22 helps designers and developers to explore the modern technologies, frameworks, and tools integrated into iOS, tvOS, macOS, and watchOS.
