Rumors abound about Apple and its commitment to VR and AR which is the Apple Mixed Reality headset. We’ve seen reports before that an iPhone maker has filed a trademark for the name of RealityOS, which sounds like the name of the software side. Now there are reports that the company is doing the same on the hardware side.

Apple Mixed Reality Headset Filing Trademark for its name

Bloomberg reports that Apple has filed a trademark, indicating the company has reserved many potential names for Apple mixed reality headset. Some names are Reality One, Reality Pro, Reality Processor. As before, the company did not register these trademarks directly, but took the detour of asking a law firm to register the company. They have also been submitted in many markets such as the US, Canada, UK, EU, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Costa Rica and Uruguay.

It is perhaps important to note that the report states that these trademark applications have not yet been granted. But if they’re successful, their names make sense given the company’s larger ecosystem: The Reality Pro could be a high-end variant to match the naming of iPhone variants. The company has a subscription service package called Apple One, which Reality One may refer to. And finally, the Reality Processor can easily refer to the processing chip inside.

Bloomberg’s report also cites previous rumors about Apple and its very powerful (and very expensive) first headset, internally codenamed N301. Beyond the codename, this is sometimes called “reality” and explains the name of the trademark application. This he followed with the N602 and N421, which are said to be cheaper but won’t be available until 10 years from now.
