But now there are increasing indications that Apple is actually giving an initial preview of the headset at the start of the Worldwide Developers Conference 2022 on June 6th. As early as February 2022, the name of an unknown operating system appeared in communication protocols between Apple’s development environment Xcode and App Store Connect: RealityOS.
Now it has become known that a company called “Realityo Systems LLC” has registered the trademark “RealityOS”. This would actually be nothing remarkable – but Apple has used shell companies for trademark registration in the past. For example, Apple used the company “Yosemite Research LLC” to register “Monterey” as a trademark. The interesting thing here: “Yosemite Research LLC” and “Realityo Systems LLC” are registered with exactly the same address – so it is almost certain that it is an Apple shell company.
Apple and “Realityo Systems LLC” registered “RealityOS” as a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office as early as December 2021 – Apple chose an interesting date as the deadline for registering international trademarks: June 8 – just two days after the Keynote at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2022.
If you register a trademark, you must always state the type of use. Under the RealityOS trademark, Apple identifies “computer hardware design and development,” “software,” “peripherals,” “computers,” and “video games.” However, the following classification is much more important: “Wearable Hardware”. The trademark application also states that Apple and “Realityo Systems LLC” have not previously used the trademark and that it refers to a product that has not yet been published.
The operating system of the headset
In all probability, RealityOS will be the operating system of the Apple headset. In the future, Apple will not only offer macOS, iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS and audioOS (this is the HomePod software), but also RealityOS. It is interesting that Apple did not choose the spelling realityOS with a small first letter for the trademark, but “RealityOS” with a capital R.
