Apple has been working on VR and AR technology behind the scenes for years at this point. Patent filings and various leaks have already helped paint a picture of a more productivity-focused device. However, Apple will be investing a little into the gaming side, as it has reportedly begun hiring game developers.
According to the report, Apple has hired Playdeo staff previously too, including the design lead behind Avo. Apparently, Apple is also in talks with AR game studios as well as it begins preparing content for its first AR consumer device.
Previous leaks and rumours have pointed to Apple releasing its first dedicated AR/VR device in 2023.

KitGuru Says: Given the success of the App Store and mobile gaming on iOS in general, Apple would be silly to not invest some effort into ensuring game availability for any AR or VR device it plans to ship.
