It’s also become known that Apple is stepping up its efforts to promote the gadget with content thanks to the job listings the company has posted over the past few months. The business is looking for a software developer with knowledge of game asset pipelines and visual effects that can produce digital content for augmented and virtual reality settings.

A headgear video service with 3D content that can be played in virtual reality is also suggested by the listings as being something Apple intends to develop. The job posting that directly refers to the creation of a 3D mixed reality world is the most intriguing; it suggests that Apple is engaged in the building of a virtual setting akin to Zuckerberg’s Metaverse.
