Apple Plans To Create Its Own Metaverse And A Video Service For Its Mixed Reality Glasses

Apple is on the lookout for a number of new employees who will be heavily involved in promoting the company’s first mixed reality headset, which is currently in development.

Apple also intends to develop a virtual 3D world to go with its future mixed reality glasses. It would enter directly into competition with the metaverse of Meta, with its CEO Mark Zuckerberg has previously stated that its Cupertino neighbours are the biggest competitor in this field.

According to Bloomberg, Apple is looking for several experts to join its future mixed reality team. One of them is destined to create the aforementioned “3D virtual world.”

The job description states that the job will be to solve “incredibly challenging and interesting problems in the 3D application space.” Tasks will include “creating tools and frameworks to enable connected experiences in a mixed reality world.”

In addition to the above and other profiles, the Californian giant also wants to hire experts in the generation of audiovisual content. Thus, the company would seek, among other things, to create a 3D video service designed exclusively for this device.

The mixed reality headset will most likely cost between $2,000 and $3,000 because it is a high-end product with a Mac-level M2 chip, more than ten cameras placed on the outside and inside of the device, and the best display yet — the highest resolution ever used in a consumer headset.

We also know that the device will run realityOS, a new operating system that will include mixed reality versions of core Apple apps like Messages, FaceTime, and Maps. The first version of the operating system, codenamed Oak, is currently in development and is expected to be ready for new hardware next year.

According to the latest rumors, Apple’s mixed reality headset will be introduced in the spring of 2023.
