Many investors are eagerly awaiting news from Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) ahead of the company’s “annual developer” conference which starts today and ends on Friday. At the event, the hardware maker is expected to unveil an upgrade to its existing mobile operating system iOS 16. Additionally, some pundits and analysts believe that the company may discuss or provide “hints” about a brand new OS called “RealityOS.” This new OS would enable Apple’s customers to enjoy “virtual and augmented reality,” known as VR and AR respectively. Ahead of the conference, titled the Worldwide Developers Conference, or WWDC, Apple stock is climbing 1.3% in pre-market trading.

With the updates to its existing operating system, Apple could offer enhanced notifications, “an ‘always on’ feature,” and improved navigation on its iPads.

Apple’s new RealityOS could power a “mixed-reality headset.” The device may utilize a form of AR to superimpose “digital objects on physical surroundings.” According to Reuters, it could launch next March. Additionally, Apple is reportedly looking to introduce iterations of its FaceTime and Maps services that incorporate VR.
