The most recent test versions of the Reality Pro headset, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, “won’t require an iPhone for setup or use.” This is a significant departure from other Apple products, like the Apple Watch, which initially required an iPhone for setup.
Instead, the headset from Reality Pro will allow for setup without an iPhone and be able to retrieve user data directly from iCloud. But, you will have the choice to immediately move your data from an iPhone or iPad to the headset, much like the setup procedure for other Apple products.
The Reality Pro headset will not feature a remote control like other AR/VR headsets on the market; instead, it will rely on the user’s hands and eyes for control. According to Bloomberg, “in-air typing” will be a crucial component of test input, although it is “finicky in testing.”
According to Bloomberg, Apple is developing a new version of the Reality Pro headset with a focus on performance. Now, the Reality Pro headset is expected to be introduced at WWDC in June and released later in the year.
