Apple wants to register and secure  the RealityOS trademark. According to insiders, under this name the company should release an operating system for a new AR/VR headset. Trademark application was noticed by the Twitter user Parker Ortolani.

The trademark documentation states “wearable computer equipment” and refers to “design and development of computer hardware, software, peripherals, computer and video games”. The application was not officially submitted by Apple. Its author is Realityo Systems LLC. However, it is common practice for large companies to apply under the guise of one-off firms to maintain anonymity. This step may be proof that the manufacturer is on the verge of announcing the long-awaited headset.

The first mentions about the “reality operating system” were back in 2017 and since then, links to RealityOS have appeared in Apple’s software. Earlier this month, it was reported that the new AR/VR gadget had been tested by the board of directors. This is common practice before public launch. 

In January 2022, the headset was scheduled for public release later this year. However, due to problems with development, its release was postponed to 2023.
