However, now, new trademark filings have surfaced online that have mentioned the “realityOS” moniker on the document confirming a sooner release of the mixed reality headset.

Parker Ortolani of Vox Media has found two US patents that were registered by a company called Realityo Systems LLC. The patents are of the realityOS for the “wearable computer hardware.” Interestingly, the patent has a deadline of June 8, which is just two days after the WWDC 2022 event. Ortolani mentions that it cannot be a coincidence that the patent of the company, which does not exist, is specifically for wearable computer hardware dated June 8.

New’realityOS’ patents with a June 8 deadline have surfaced online, indicating that Apple’s AR/VR headset will be released sooner. @VICPRANAV is Pranav Sawant’s Twitter handle. Published at 1:55 p.m. IST on May 30, 2022. Share on Twitter On June 6, Apple will begin with their WWDC 2022 event. Rumors circulated that the much-anticipated mixed reality headgear will be unveiled shortly. While Apple’s AR/VR headset is expected to be announced at the next WWDC event, Mark Gurman believes it may not happen this early. Rather, he would be “wary of anticipating” a reality headset announcement during the event.
It is worth noting that this is not the first time we are seeing a realityOS reference on a document. A developer named Steve Troughton-Smith also found a reference of the realityOS in a source code. Originally, the existence of realityOS was reported by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman in 2017. As for its release, Gurman had earlier revealed that the mixed reality headset may not launch until 2023. However, if this new trademark is to be believed, Apple might give us a glimpse of the mixed reality headset at the WWDC 2022 event, if not getting fully announced.
For those who aren’t aware, Realityo Systems LLC has the same address as the Yosemite Research LLC, which was a shell company Apple used to obscure the details of the previous macOS versions. Now, since the Realityo Systems LLC has the same address as Yosmite Research LLC and the patent particularly mentions “wearable computer hardware,” it could as well be a shell brand of Apple to conceal the details of the realityOS that will run on Apple’s upcoming mixed-reality headset.
