Apple Trademarks “realityOS” Ahead Of WWCD
A mystery shell company with no other discernible business interests has filed a worldwide trademark on the name realityOS ahead of Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference.
Realityo Systems LLC first filed the trademark in the US on December 8, 2011.
As Verge journalist Parker Ortolani noted on Twitter: “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.”
Ortolani also pointed out that the June 8th deadline is two days after the WWDC keynote.
“Apple typically files trademarks for products announced at WWDC a day or two after the keynote. This would be one helluva coincidence,” he tweeted.
A few weeks back, executives from Apple previewed its upcoming headset, codenamed N301, to the company’s board.
According to Bloomberg sources, the headset’s processors are “on par with those in Apple’s latest Macs” and the first model will offer both VR and AR, with a standalone AR version coming later.
Apple has been working on this headset since 2015, with 2,000 employees working on the device under the Technology Development Group within Apple.
Many of these hires came from NASA, while internal engineering leaders for the iPhone and iPad were moved into the team.
The WWDC seems to be the perfect time to announce such a product to the public.
