New “xrOS” wordmark for Apple mixed reality headset appears ahead of WWDC 23

Rumor mills claim that the first-generation Apple mixed reality headset featuring Augmented reality and virtual reality tech will debut this year at the WWDC 2023 event in June.

Substantiating the reports, a new “xrOS” wordmark is discovered in New Zealand ahead of the upcoming event.

Like iOS and other OS, the new xrOS for Apple AR/VR headset will also be in San Fransisco

Initially, it was speculated that the operating system for the new Apple mixed reality headset would be called “realityOS” or “rOS”. Later Mark Gurman from Bloomberg reported that the tech company had rebranded the software to “xrOS” to represent its “extended reality” capabilities. 

Earlier this year, the code of the Apple Devices Preview app for Windows 11 included references to xrOS which confirmed the branding of Apple mixed reality headset’s operating system.

Now, developer Parker Ortolani has spotted the “xrOS” wordmark registration at the New Zealand Intellectual Property Office. The wordmark uses the San Fransisco font or typeface like the iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS wordmarks according to the filing.

Reportedly, the new Apple mixed reality headset will offer gaming, video streaming, video conferencing, fitness, and other services. It has a lightweight design for comfortable all-day wear and is powered by an external battery pack attached to a wire. 

After Apple released the iPad version of Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro video, it was claimed that the new Apple mixed reality headset will also support its professional video and photo editing tools.

An Apple leaker claimed that his source tested the new AR/VR headset and was “blown away” by its performance.
