Apple's annual iPhone launch is scheduled for September 10, and iOS 13 is expected to be released soon, but it seems the likelihood of a "one more thing" deal has just gotten a big boost.
According to reports, the latest internal version of iOS 13 includes references to an augmented reality headset that could meet last year's reports on Apple's next big product category coming out next year.
References include an internal "STARTester" app that toggles between these two categories "Worn out" and "Held" modes, as well as the mention of a "StarBoard" stereo display status for AR apps in a "README" file within the internal iOS builds.
Additional code mentions a "StarBoard mode". as well as commands for "ARStarBoardViewController" and "ARStarBoardSceneManager". You'll also find a reference to a device with AR capabilities called "Garta" in its internal files.
These clues, uncovered by MacRumors are hardly a smoking weapon that can make an AR headset public debut next week, but it's the strongest proof that not just an AR in The development is, but also something in this area is likely to be tested internally.
Several reports indicate that Apple has a hybrid AR / VR device Another report predicts that the device will work as a connected headset with the iPhone as a CPU.
A report from 2017 revealed that an AR headset was developed in 2020. By 2019, a release could be scheduled for 2020. If these reports are correct, this code would confirm that Apple is on schedule with the tests, although it seems unlikely that they will be revealed during the event next week. Nevertheless, we know that iOS 13 will bring ARKit 3, Reality Composer and Windows XP RealityKit, new customizations for Animojis and Memoji as well as some ARKit-enabled tricks for FaceTime.
With media invitations containing the slogan "Only through Innovation," an early preview of such a device is now possible.  Do not miss: The future of Apple augmented reality smartglasses and the following android copies
