RealityOS: Everything We Know About the Software...

Apple is developing a mixed reality AR/VR headset that's set to launch in less than a year, if rumors are to be believed. With new hardware comes new software, and Apple is working on a headset operating system that is set to be called realityOS or rOS.

This guide aggregates everything that we know about the realityOS operating system that will run on the upcoming AR/VR headset. We'll update this guide over time as we learn more about realityOS.

rOS

Apple has been working on the software that will run on the AR/VR headset since 2017, and according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple will refer to it as realityOS, or rOS. The name will go along with the headset's name, which is expected to be either Reality One or Reality Pro.

FCC ‘Nutrition Labels’ Could Help Demystify Broadband

Understanding internet service plans hasn’t always been easy. Consumers easily get themselves into a plan they think is fairly priced, only to be shocked when the “introductory” period expires and their monthly bill doubles or more. Even worse, buyers don’t always know about hidden fees and data usage costs. Thanks to new “Nutrition Labels” regulation by the FCC, broadband is set to become much easier to understand.

What Are Broadband Nutrition Labels?

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has recently approved new rules requiring broadband providers make their services easier to understand. New labels, designed to look much like the nutrition labels on food, should help make it easier for consumers to understand the ins and outs of their broadband service plans.

Twitter May Finally Have a Good Vision for the Future

Elon Musk’s tenure so far at Twitter has been something I’ve frequently called a chaotic mess. His takeover of the social media platform has been a source of numerous “bad news” stories. Mass layoffs, the reinstatement of several accounts known to spew hate speech and a huge defection to other platforms has been the news du jour most days. Now, however, it seems there may finally be a vision for a better Twitter in the future. At least, today it looks that way.

Rising iPhone ASPs and Processing Desert Plans

The average selling price for iPhones is up significantly, TSMC Arizona might be good for Apple after all, and entertainment news. That’s a snapshot of what we’re seeing from the Observation Deck today.

CIRP Sees Sharp Rise for iPhone ASPs Since 2020

Seeking Alpha ran a piece Monday arguing that Apple is “unlikely to outperform the market going forward.” The site listed a few reasons, including not having a truly new anything for the past several cycles, and having increased margins about as much as they’re able to do. When looking at true newness, the piece spent a decent amount of time focused on the possibility of a car from Apple, and it looks like no time on Apple’s anticipated mixed reality headset. 

Odd.

The man who drove his SUV through an Apple Store, killing one and injuring 20, has been criminally charged, authorities say. The crash in Hingham, Mass. was an accident, the driver says, caused by his foot becoming stuck on the accelerator pedal.

Construction Worker Was Involved in Store Improvements

The crash ended the life of Kevin Bradley, 65, of New Jersey. Bradley was a construction worker helping with improvements to the store. At the time the black SUV accelerated into the Apple Store, Bradley was helping another worker remove a barrier from in front of the store.

Bradley was struck even before the SUV crashed through the glass storefront. After that, the vehicle continued into the interior of the Apple Store, which had opened roughly 45 minutes prior. Reports suggested the SUV traveled all the way to a...

This week, he's phoned it in with what would be wrong if it were the two sentences it should be, and is complete nonsense at the kilo-word length it is.It's true that iPad sales are lower than they were at the 2014 peak. But Gassee wants to make this point about users not knowing what the iPad is for — and he rewrites history to do it.

The UK's antitrust watchdog has moved to deepen its scrutiny of the Apple and Google mobile duopoly -- kicking off an in-depth investigation into elements of the pair's mobile ecosystem dominance by probing their approach toward rival mobile browsers and cloud gaming services which it's concerned could be restricting competition and harming consumers. From a report: The move follows a market study conducted by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) last year that led to a final report this summer which concluded there are substantial competition concerns -- with the regulator finding the tech giants have what it described as "an effective duopoly on mobile ecosystems that allows them to exercise a stranglehold over operating systems, app stores and web browsers on mobile devices."

At the same time, the CMA proposed to undertake what's known as a market investigation reference (MIR) with two points of focus: One looking at Apple's and Google's market power in mobile...

Top 5 Apple Devices Overdue an Update

Several Apple devices are now over 18 months old, and with new hardware that could bring valuable improvements to them on the horizon, much of it already existing in other devices, there are five important products that seem to be overdue an update.

While some devices like the Pro Display XDR and HomePod mini are arguably also due an update, there are at least five main Apple devices that appear to be overdue a refresh – where a new model could yield substantial improvements. Likewise, as time goes by, it becomes increasingly difficult for Apple to justify leaving these devices in its product lineup without a hardware update.
