Apple plans to build a standalone AR headset that will be powered by what the company internally calls rOS, or reality OS, according to Bloomberg. Such a system would benefit from being able to implement Apple'sARKit API directly without any significant modifications at all, which should mean a ready pool of software available right of the bat.
Apple has been slowly dipping its toes into AR waters as of late.
AR headsets have been developed by other tech competitors with little success so far, from Google Glass to Microsoft Hololens - which uses both augmented reality and virtual reality - and even Snapchat's Spectacles. With augmented reality, you aren't shut off from the world around you, but virtual elements can be overlaid on the real world.

Apple engineers are said to be now prototyping a range of applications for use in AR, reportedly using HTC Vive headsets for testing them. Engineers are also prototyping a number of apps, including mapping, texting, virtual meeting rooms, and 360-degree video. In other words, it would be a standalone device - and wouldn't rely on a smartphone to power it, like most headsets now on the market. Possible ways to control the smart glasses include touch panels, voice commands and head gestures, though final decisions may not be made until one or two years down the line. "We don't give a rats about being first, we want to be best in creating people's experiences". Multiple challenges remain unsolved, including designing a wireless device that can display AR visuals for long enough without depleting the battery. "The technology had matured to a point where they felt they could demonstrate something interesting and useful and present it in a way that is easy for users to do", Nguyen said.
