Apple is preparing a major announcement for WWDC 2023 and has invited Virtual Reality experts to try it out first hand.
WWDC 2023 is just around the corner and, although it has always been a software-focused event, this year a very important novelty is expected in the form of a new device. It has been rumored for years about the launch of virtual reality and augmented reality glasses from Apple and everything seems to indicate that we will see them at WWDC this year.
Many experts have opted for a launch of this new device at the inaugural conference of the WWDC and it seems that Apple has confirmed it indirectly. After distributing invitations to the press to attend WWDC 2023 in person, it has been discovered that the company has invited several experts in Virtual Reality.
Apple will present its glasses at WWDC
Apple tends to choose very carefully the members of the press and the content creators who attend its events. And this year, Apple has decided invite journalists and creators who specialize in virtual reality technologies as ian hamiltonpublisher of UploadVR, or Norman Chan, known for testing AR/VR devices. It is the first time they will attend an Apple event.
That Apple has invited them is not by chance, it is because they are preparing an important announcement related to virtual and augmented reality and that can only be in the form of a new device. So we can expect an important announcement during the event, beyond the presentations of iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS 14, watchOS 10 and tvOS 17.
This is not the first time this has happened. For the event of Apple Watch presentationwhich also came as a surprise, Apple invited numerous people and specialists in the world of fashionLet’s remember that at first Apple wanted to position the Apple Watch as a fashion accessory.
We also saw something similar when Apple announced its Apple TV+ streaming service. There were numerous guest actors and directors who even went on stage to present their upcoming series and movies.
Therefore, everything seems to indicate that Apple will present its “Apple Reality Pro”, that seems to be the official name, during its developer conference this year. Something that it makes a lot of sense since a fundamental part of the device will be its operating systemknown as xrOS, and the apps that are developed for it.
