Apple viewer, here are which apps will run in virtual and augmented reality

Safari, FaceTime, Mail but also Pages, Numbers and Books: what we will do on Apple’s magic glasses

In a Bloomberg report signed by insider Mark Gurman there is a return to talk about the Apple viewer for mixed and augmented reality, the one that should debut at an unspecified moment this year and presumably be revealed at the Apple Developers’ Conference in June. The headset will have its own operating system, realityOS, but according to Gurman it will come with a number of classic apps adapted from the iPad at launch. We are talking specifically about Safari for web browsing, Mail, FaceTime for calls and video calls, messages, photos and Freeform for working in a shared environment. There will also be a dedicated Apple TV app for viewing video content, and Books for reading and meditating within the virtual environment. Among the apps dedicated to productivity, VR and AR versions of Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iMovie and Garage Band, the classic Apple suite of Mac and iOS, are in development. Finally, it seems that gaming will be a central element of the product, on which it will push even more than is done with Apple Arcade on iPad and iPhone. According to the latest reports, the first version of Apple’s headset could hit the market with a price tag of around $3,000.
