Rumors have been swirling for almost five years that Apple is working on some kind of augmented reality or virtual reality wearable device. If this is the case, Apple could potentially announce the product ahead of time towards the end of next year, with a launch following several months later.

The now targeted release date for Apple headset is in 2020, but plans for the device may still change, or perhaps even get canceled. The new VR Headset project codenamed T288.

Not many details have been revealed at the moment as the project is still in its very early stages. That said, Apple still will be behind major players like Facebook and Google who have done a lot R&D revolving around the technology.

The box, which currently resembles a PC tower, will use a custom Apple processor that is more powerful than anything available right now.

Even more, according to CNET, the new gadget should integrate an 8K display for each eye, so there would be 16K in total.

The company, to recall, rolled out ARKit a year ago to help developers design AR experiences for the iPhone and iPad, so the said devices will be aware of their surroundings and will allow users to interact with them virtually through AR. This processor would work as a brain of the headset and the headset would be controlled by the built-in processor itself.
