We reported to you last April that Apple is preparing to purchase the NextVR initiative, which focuses on live virtual reality broadcasts. According to the information shared today, the purchase agreement was officially completed and NextVR was purchased by Apple.
As a reminder, NextVR, which is an initiative that transfers concerts and various sports organizations with 360 degree live broadcasts to its users, combines the entertainment and sports industry with virtual reality technology. NextVR’s sports events include NBA, WWE and NHL.
But let’s add that the NextVR service has been turned off for a long time. When you enter the website of the initiative or the Oculus application, you see a statement about “NextVR is Heading in a New Direction”, that is, the company is moving in a new direction.
Although there is no official information about the financial details of the purchase agreement, Apple has reviewed $ 100 million to purchase NextVR, according to information shared by 9to5Mac. We have already mentioned that Apple’s augmented reality glasses can be introduced in 2021.
With the acquisition of NextVR, Apple’s work on virtual and augmented reality will accelerate. But let’s add that there is no clear explanation about the subject right now.
