If you are an iPhone user, then this news is for you as Apple is all set to come up with an innovative headset that you can insert into your phone. Recently, the tech giant has filed a patent for a simple head-mounted display. While the device is yet to move ahead of its patent stage, there are possibilities that the gadget could one day offer a cheaper and easier way to experience VR than Apple Vision Pro, which costs the eye-popping price of $3,499.Well, this patent, which is the 17th of its kind, describes a pair of glasses that can hold your plane in just front of your eyes, making a new way towards the VR experience. Then, the iPhone acts like the main screen, displaying the VR content. This works the same as rival Samsungs Gear VR, although Apple did file patents for this concept long before Gear VR was launched.Features of this patentNow, talking about the upcoming Apple innovation, this device is not just a glorified phone holder, but also has some amazing features as well, making it more versatile and user-friendly.For example, it can be available with a remote control that takes your viewing experience to another height, or a touch sensor that you can adjust the volume by sliding your finger on your screen up and down.Thats not it, another proposed feature is the external viewing mode. Now this allows you to see the real world through the glasses. This could solve one of the main problems of VR and AR: feeling isolated from your surroundings. The upcoming Apple Vision Pro also has this same feature, but it uses advanced cameras and sensors to create a realistic view of the environment.Apple exploring more to make VR, AR more unaffordableWell, lets make it clear that the patent doesnt mean they will launch this device, but they are exploring new techniques that can make VR more affordable, accessible and easy to use for the masses. For those who are unaware, VR and AR still cost whooping amounts and are not easy on our pockets. But, if Apple can offer this simpler and cheaper alternative, it is expected that people will be attracted to this device in the future.
