Bloomberg reported previous year that Apple was working on an augmented reality headset for shipping as early as 2020, which would have its own display, a new chip and operating system. The new report released by a person familiar with Apple's plans. "Plans so far call for an 8K display for each eye - higher resolution than today's best TVs - that would be untethered from a computer or smartphone, the person said".

Previous year at the World Wide Developer's Conference 2017, Apple talked a lot about the Augmented Reality. All that the user needs to enjoy the technology are the headset and the box.

"The project is still in its early stages but is slated for release in 2020". CNET says Apple is exploring 60GHz WiGig, a high-speed wireless protocol capable of transferring lots of data quickly. Sources claim that the new VR Headset will be launching in the year 2020. Now, CNET reports, the company may also consider virtual reality capabilities for the device. Startup Pimax successfully funded a Kickstarter for the world's first 8K VR headset, but has yet to ship any product to backers. Apple may announce it before the expected date or at a later one, things are not decided yet. The box that powers Apple's AR/VR headset would also use a 5-nanometer processor which could be packed in a very small space thus making the headset less cumbersome to wear.

Meanwhile, Apple has recently introduced "ARKit" - the company's AR development platform that could recognize only recognize horizontal surfaces while placing virtual objects at the moment. This processor would work as a brain of the headset and the headset would be controlled by the built-in processor itself.
