Apple may be partnering up with Valve to market its new augmented reality headset.

A DigiTimes report states that the two companies are working together to bring the headset to life, which could potentially reach store shelves by Q3 or Q4 2020.

The partnership would further expand Valve’s cooperation with Apple since releasing Steam for Mac in 2010.

Valve has worked with HTC in the past to produce the HTC Vive headset, which launched in 2016. Valve’s Steam storefront also offers dedicated support for virtual reality developers, giving them a solid platform to bring their content to life.

Apple has favored AR technology over VR, however, with Apple’s CEO Tim Cook saying it wanted him to “yell out and scream” at the possibilities the technology could bring to Apple products.

Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, stated that the headset could be marketed as an iPhone accessory, resulting in the phone doing most of the heavy lifting. Further information about Apple’s rumoured augmented reality headset is yet to emerge, but a release would be expected to bring AR technology into the next generation of gaming.
