If Apple is able to meet its goal, the company could announce the product in 2019 and ship it for release in 2020, Bloomberg reported.

Bloomberg, citing sources familiar with the matter, reports that the AR system would utilize its own display and be powered by a new chip and operating system - and unlike current models, it would not need an accompanying smartphone to function.

According to the report, the new operating system retains the conventions of iOS nomenclature and is called rOS (reality Operating System).

The AR headset would have its own App Store from where users can download content, just like they do on iPhones, Macs, Apple Watch, and Apple TV. It is looking for options such as touch panels, voice-activation, Siri and maybe head gestures. Cook acknowledged as much in a recent interview with The Independent, when he said: "Anything you would see on the market any time soon would not be something any of us would be satisfied with". "Put simply, we believe AR is going to change the way we use technology forever". After creating ARKit, hundreds of engineers led by former Dolby executive Mike Rockwell have been working on the headset project in office parks scattered around Cupertino and Sunnyvale, under the codename "T288".

The reports further point out that engineers are prototyping a range of applications, from mapping and texting to more advanced features including virtual meeting rooms and 360-degree video playback.

For now, Apple is still finalising how users will control the device and launch apps. One working prototype to internally test AR apps looks like an Oculus Gear headset with iPhone's screen, cameras and chipsets, according to Bloomberg.
