Apple seeks VR partner

- Reuters

Apple was in talks with about half a dozen media partners including Walt Disney to develop virtual reality content for its mixed-reality headset, Bloomberg News reported Monday.

Developed with Sony Group, the headset will have two ultra-highresolu­tion displays to handle the VR aspects and a collection of external cameras to enable an augmented reality “pass-through mode,” the report said.

Disney, Apple and Sony did not respond to requests for comment.

Earlier this month, Bloomberg reported that Apple planned to unveil its first mixed-reality headset this year. MR is one of three types of extended reality technologi­es associated with the metaverse. An MR headset could allow the wearer to use a real-world object to trigger a virtual world reaction.
