Tim Cook said Apple is working on augmented reality, or AR, a product in Interview with a state-run outlet china daily, to tell AR fans to “stay tuned and you’ll see what we have to offer.” It reads as a direct hint that the company is working on a type of headphone, which has been rumored for years – unless, of course, he thinks people will be really excited to use ARKit applications on their phones.
In this section, it caught our attention by 9to5Mac, the interviewer asked Cook what he thinks are key factors for an AR product to be successful. Cook responds by saying he “couldn’t be more excited” about augmented reality, despite it being “in its infancy” in its development.
Cook talk about augmented reality many times During his tenure as CEO of Apple he went so far as to say that he is the “number one” fan of technology. He also agreed that augmented reality is “a very important part of Apple’s future,” and when the company Announced AR APICraig Federighi He said the technology was a “profound” change..

Recent reports indicate that the headset is almost ready. Working on its own operating system called Reality OS, intensifiedto me BloombergAnd the board of directors got a test drive of the devices last month.
Cook’s comment, though, isn’t necessarily positive evidence that an Apple headset is just around the corner. In March Apple frankly said An Apple Silicon Mac Pro announcement was coming. Many people , I am one of them, were sure that meant we’d see him at WWDC in June. But the key word came and went without Apple showing off its high-end hardware. What I’m saying is that even though Apple seems to be opening up a bit about the products it has in the hopper, it sure still makes us guess.
