Apple headset users will be able to create apps through Siri, says report

More and more tangible, the rumors of the headset da Apple are intensifying every day. This time, possible news released by the The Information realize that the device will allow anyone — even without knowing how to program — create apps with the help of Siri.

The mixed reality headset (augmented and virtual) may be able to assist the user in the process of creating an app, as well as making it available through the App Store — all of this just using the virtual assistant as an intermediary.

According to speculation, Siri will use specific software to create different types of applications:

The tool, for example, could allow users to build an app with virtual animals moving around a room and over or around real-life objects without needing to design the animal from scratch, program its animations and calculate its movement in a 3D space with obstacles.

Using Minecraft or Roblox as an example, the report indicates that Apple’s intention would be to make it possible to create 3D worlds and other tools more easily. For this, Apple would be using the technology it acquired from the startup Fabric Software, in 2017. With it, developers could create AR apps and distribute them through the App Store.

As was pointed out by MacRumors, it is important to highlight that the sources cite demonstrations of the tool that took place in 2021 and, since then, it is possible that a lot has already been discarded or improved. In addition, Apple already offers some AR creation tools, such as Reality Composer, which could very well be adapted for the headset.

Another good news is that Apple would already be preparing content to be consumed from the headset, according to anonymous sources. With a focus mainly on health and wellnessproposals would include meditation and exerciseeven having an initial demo in AR in which users see themselves in a “zen garden”.

Mainly in Portuguese, we know how deficient Siri still is – and the device is scheduled to launch this year. If the rumors prove to be true, the virtual assistant should certainly gain significant improvements – after all, we don’t expect this to be only in English, do we?
