With Apple potentially unveiling its secretive augmented reality headset later this year with plans to launch the device next year, the company has made a strategic investment to enhance the efficiency of its supply chain.
Earlier this week, Apple announced the next event “Spring Loaded” for April 20 today. The announcement featured colourful artwork on the invitation as well as another AR Easter egg was included on the Apple Events webpage.
Now it could be just our imagination running wild, but the invite image for the WWDC 2021, set for June 7-11, has got our head spinning wondering if Apple is preparing to finally talk about its developments in augmented reality and virtual reality. More specifically, its well rumoured augmented reality glasses.
Earlier this February, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office officially granted Apple a patent which related to their mixed reality (XR) system, including a head mounted display (HMD) and a base station which could be a Mac, iPhone/iPad or game console to play VR content and more.
As 2021 gets underway, Apple continues to reveal more of their augmented reality device developments, and the latest update comes as insight into the specific components that Apple intends to build into its AR product.
