Apple’s VR headset will offer a unique FaceTime experience

The news comes from Mark Gurman, an analyst at Bloomberg capable of always launching interesting technological scoops. And it seems that once again his sources within the Apple world have borne fruit. In fact, it seems that there are news regarding the Apple’s AR and VR headsetwhose code name Gurman turns out to be ‘Oak‘.

Gurman had revealed that the device will be used for gaming, watching movies and other multimedia content. But also for communication, as confirmed by the news about using FaceTime which reports the analyst.

“I imagine a virtual version of FaceTime where you can find yourself in a conference room with dozens of people. Instead of seeing the faces, we will see a 3D version of the people (Memoji). I take it for granted that the viewer will determine the person’s facial expressions in real time, making the experience seem real. Also I believe we will see great use of SharePlay in realityOS, allowing more users to enjoy music, movies and games together ” writes Gurman.

Apple would stay working on these viewers since 2017 but the release date is approaching. The first confirmations of the operating system have arrived online realityOS or rOSwhere we will also find third-party apps that will load them via the App Store.

Memojis arrived in 2018 with iOS 12, while SharePlay is new in 2021 with iOS 15.1. But using them in VR could re-contextualize their usefulness and possibilities. Gurman thinks Apple is ready to launch the device, but that maybe we will have to wait for the WWDC of 2023 to see the presentation.
