According to reports, Hollywood directors will generate content for Apple’s mixed reality headset

According to a source, Apple is collaborating with Hollywood directors to generate video material for its future augmented reality (AR) / virtual reality (VR) gear. According to sources acquainted with the situation, Jon Favreau is merely one of the directors participating in providing a mixed reality experience based on Prehistoric Planet, the dinosaur-filled Apple TV Plus series he produced.

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to immerse ourselves in a Jurassic Park-style world anytime soon. According to the New York Times, due to battery life and performance concerns, Apple’s headset may not be released until 2023, as previously reported.

The mixed reality device may not even make a debut at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on Monday, as Apple may turn its focus instead to software. Apple is apparently planning to release a developer toolkit that will allow developers to add camera and speech capability to their apps, providing hands-free control ahead of the headset’s release.

Apple has not yet acknowledged the existence of the headset, but it will most certainly be capable of providing both immersive virtual reality experiences and virtual overlays that appear to be part of the actual environment. Various leaks and rumors have also provided us with a lot to think about, ranging from its untethered form shape to its “Mac-level” computing power.

However, there have been rumors that Apple is preparing the device for an official launch, which may not take place at WWDC. The name RealityOS was discovered in a trademark filing for “wearable computer hardware,” which is presumably the operating system for the headset. Apple’s board of directors apparently got to check out the mixed reality headgear last month.
