Apple’s potential metaverse ambitions are expected to kick off in earnest with the launch of Reality and/or Reality Pro. This is purported to be the first generation headset with the OEM’s signature design polish and seamless hardware/software integration.The latter impression can be reinforced by a number of Job Information Now promoted by the Cupertino giants.
Roles seem to span the gamut of augmented reality (AR/VR) product creation, from prototyping to development, software, and (because Apple is being discussed here) services. Apple also appears to have a plan for the resulting labor output.
According to a Taiwanese industry blog Digi Timesthe contract to assemble Apple’s first-ever “Reality Series” hardware, a headset codenamed N301, has been fully secured by Pegatron.
The manufacturer is also involved in making the hardware for the iPhone 14 series and plans to begin mass production of this first AR/VR device in the first quarter of 2023.
