On June 6, Apple will host its Worldwide Developers Conference. The event will still be virtual this year and open to all developers worldwide. It will be held at Apple Park in Cupertino. The event was originally intended for developers, but in recent years Apple has used it to showcase new software and hardware. According to reports, there is a special highlight this year and a recent development in the market could support this theory. Recently, Apple registered the trademark “Reality.” Perhaps a good sign that the tech giant will now enter the VR and AR world.
While insiders reported that a first headset is nearing completion, we now have a better idea of the operating system that will likely be integrated into it. After the trademark registration became known, the name “realityOS” emerged.
It cannot be a coincidence that the “realityOS” trademark owned by a company that seemingly doesn’t exist and is specifically for “wearable computer hardware” is being filed around the world on June 8, 2022 https://t.co/myoRbOvgJa + https://t.co/AH97r95EMn pic.twitter.com/uvsiZCj2rR

According to Parker Ortolaniit, consumer product manager at Verge, Polygon and Vox Media, previously unknown company Realityo Systems LLC has registered the RealityOS trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The dossier, which dates back to December, is divided into categories, all of which relate to “the design and development of computer hardware, software, peripherals, and computer and video games.”
But what’s behind the rumor and will we be treated to the long-awaited Apple headset in a few days, for which the company has bought up a wide variety of startups in recent years, including Munich-based Metaio? It remains exciting!
