An Apple patent has popped up recently that hints at an AR headset. Unlike other standalone AR headsets, this one will most like work like an Apple Watch and be heavily reliant on your iPhone.

While this is great if you are already in the Apple ecosystem, it may be difficult for you to use if you aren’t. Apple will most likely be using the same pricing strategy as the Apple Watch to raise prices: i.e. an expensive iPhone reliant base model and even more expensive standalone LTE version (probably with a red dot somewhere).

With a new device, Apple also will need a brand new operating system, which some speculate will be called rOS (reality operating system).
