Apple is actively working on its Mixed Reality headset, and we’re learning more and more about the device every day. According to a recent report from The informationwill Apple allow people who don’t know computer code to create apps for the “Reality Pro” device using Siri.
The report, which cites “four people who worked on the headset,” says this would be an “easy way for users” of the headset to “build their own AR apps.” Users will even be able to release the Siri-built apps on the App Store, according to the report.
The idea is that people would be able to use Siri to build an AR app for the Mixed Reality headset, asking the voice assistant to help create something based on real objects without having to design everything from scratch. However, the idea is not entirely new. Other headsets, such as the Meta Quest Pro, already have apps that allow users to build 3D environments without coding.
“For example, the tool could allow users to build an app with virtual animals that move around a room and over or around real objects without having to design the animal from scratch, program its animations and calculate its movement in a 3D room with obstacles.”
The Reality Pro headset is also rumored to feature AR content that emphasizes “health and wellness.” Early demos of the headset have included an AR Zen garden and an AR experience that allows users to walk through the world of Dr. Seuss book “Oh, the Places You’ll Go,” according to the report.
The Reality Pro headset is expected to be announced at a special event in March this year, with a consumer launch later this fall. The device is expected to feature high-resolution Micro-LED displays and advanced sensors for an immersive experience.
