According to a new media report, Apple is counting on helping users create engaging content for its planned mixed reality headset. The voice assistant Siri will play an important role in this matter. With it, it should be possible to design augmented reality applications without programming knowledge. The Apple Headset, which has been the subject of speculation for some time, is said to be introduced in the spring and released later this year.
Like the online magazine The Information Citing several anonymous sources at Apple, users should be able to put their AR apps into the App Store. In practice, creating your own AR worlds should look like asking Siri to use real-world objects in your own app. With the Object Capture APIwhich Apple introduced in 2021 with macOS Monterey, Apple already has corresponding programming interfaces that allow objects to be scanned from a series of images and converted into 3D objects for augmented reality applications.
Not only objects, but also animation
However, in the case of the headset, it would be more complicated to add it to a separate app. According to the report, the objects should not only be reproduced in 3D, but also fit into the virtual world as if they were real. For example, virtual animals are mentioned, which can then be animated without programming knowledge as if they were walking around the room.
Apple’s competitor Meta has created something similar for its own headphones using the Horizon Worlds app. In addition, Apple is also planning its own AR content for its Reality Pro headset. Health and fitness should play a role in this. Just a few days ago, the first possible details about the operating system became known.
