Apple's VR headset, with eye contact controls and no joystick, is now available. We should also have the right to a 3D version of iOS, adapted to Apple's VR headset.
Apple will no longer need controllers.
Apple's next VR headset is getting closer, and journalist Mark Gurman has released further information. So we know that the helmet should be called le Reality Pro.
The big question is how to control the headset interface. We therefore discover that Apple should no longer need joysticks for the hands, since the cameras on the front track movement.
The last concern over the Reality Pro is the battery. Mark Gurman proposes a device that would be removed from the helmet. The battery would therefore be on the belt, approximately the size of two iPhone 14 Pro Max one after the other. An approach that Apple generally prefers is ease of use.
The second approach is to mount a battery directly on the helmet. This seems to be the most rationaled approach. On the other hand, we know that whatever the solution chosen, it will recharge in USB-C.
iOS 3D interface is now improved and fixed.
The headset operating system should be based on iOS and iPad OS, all in 3D. Navigation will be ultra-simplified to allow virtual eyes and hands to be used to control the interface. Thus, we can look at the application we wish to open and launch it with our fingers.
The Reality Pro should include 14 cameras to record every move in real time, without the need for capture modules. This will eventually allow us to have a virtual keyboard that materializes right in front of us. However, this shouldn't take place in the first version of the helmet.
This virtual reality headset, which should cost 3000 dollars, isn't for video games. In any event, this isn't the initial goal, although it's possible that Apple has compatibility with Unity's game engine.
But when should we get this helmet? So, manufacturing will begin in China by February. We might expect an announcement in March/April. And the marketing should begin as soon as the iPhone 15, in September.
