Apple CEO Tim Cook has been into AR for quite a while now, with the first seed being planted in the AR garden with Cook revealing ARKit, allowing iOS devices to run augmented reality apps and experiences. Apple's release of AR glasses would drive this home, but the company needs its own custom chip that can handle the graphics and computational tasks required, which will be in real-time, and something that you wear.

The new AR glasses would be interacted with through head gestures, voice commands that you'd use Siri with, or a touchscreen-based remote. Apple is expected to unveil rOS with its AR glasses, which stands for reality operating system.
