Apple isn’t exactly the type of company to make VR, as it is commonly made fun of, as seen with the Google Glass project a couple years back, and even today, while VR isn’t as much of a dream anymore, it looks unusual at first glance.
However Apple is unpredictable, but when they get found out, leaks normally happen ages before the actual product’s release; if it happens at all. Turns out, Apple has hired a 3D-interface expert, to help with their VR research. Along with many other scholars dedicated to the technology, now working at Apple, it seems as though it will be promising, nonetheless.
Whether or not VR will be particularly useful in the future is debatable, however companies experimenting and trying new things is anything but uncommon.
