This past week Apple filed for three trademarks including Apple Self Repair Service, Rap Life and Country Faith while receiving a series of design patents from the U.S. by the U.S. Patent Office. Perhaps on a timelier note, a rumor via a tweet about RealityOS was posted today. This is the rumored branding for Apple’s future mixed reality headset operation system. However, the tweet was a little disingenuous by not providing the actual trademark filer being Realityo Systems LLC. One large list was presented in European and presented to you in the screenshot below.

In the USA, Realityo Systems LLC has three trademark filings with one of them presented in-part below.
Whether Realityo Systems is an IP holding company hoping for a company like Apple to acquire it or is actually acting on behalf of Apple is unknown at this time. Interestingly enough the company is located in Delaware where Apple has hidden other trademarks in the past like “iPad” in 2010.
A second RealityOS Trademark filing under number 88726903 covers the trademark under two International Classes as follows:
Class 009: “Computer software; Computer games software; Computer programs; Computer hardware. Computer game software, downloadable; Computer software platforms, recorded or downloadable; Smart glasses; Virtual reality headsets; Wearable computers.”
Class 042: “Virtual reality software design and development; Computer software design. Software as a service; Cloud computing; Computer programming.”
The classes from the other two RealityOS trademarks under numbers 97163164 and 97163139 list International Classes 009 and 042 respectively yet provide lengthier entries.
