Cook said Apple is excited about the possibilities available with augmented reality, which isn’t far off from previous comments he made, but went on to say that people should “stay tuned” to see what Apple has to offer. .

I’m incredibly excited about AR, as you may know, and the most important thing for any technology, including AR, is to put humanity at the center. And that’s what we focus on every day. For example, right now we have more than 14,000 ARKit apps in the App Store, delivering AR experiences to millions of people around the world.

Despite that, I think we’re still in the early stages of how this technology will evolve. I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunities we’ve seen in this space and stay tuned and you’ll see what we have to offer.
