Apple reportedly has over 1,000 engineers working on AR

Apple logoAnother day, another iPhone rumor. Todays comes from a UBS research note summed up by Business Insider that claims that Apple "may have over 1,000 engineers working on a project in Israel that could be related to AR. The UBS note also commented that the company expect Apple to include augmented reality tech as early as its next iPhone (which should be released this fall assuming the current release pattern holds).

The rumors fall in line a report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from last week, which claims that the next iPhone will feature a new front-facing camera with an IR module to sense the 3D space in front of it for augmented reality use cases.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has also made repeated comments in regard to Apples exploration of augmented reality as recently as last month, which combined with other rumors and a slew of AR-related hires and acquisitions could imply that there may actually be something to all the augmented reality buzz. Given Apples secretive nature, however, well likely be waiting a while still before we get any confirmation of what the next iPhone will truly look like.
