Samsung is ready to release their first VR headset in December. In response, Apple has created a new job listing for app developers well-versed in virtual reality.
The App Engineer job listing on Apple's website says that the ideal candidate will work on user interfaces for "next-generation software experiences," and will "create high performance apps that integrate with virtual reality systems." Among the job requirements mentioned are 3D graphics programming experience, knowledge of both virtual and augmented reality and familiarity with both iOS and OS X. The latter suggesting mobile devices too.
This comes on the heels of the Pinc device which integrates an iPhone into their VR headset.
Perhaps the next big battle between Apple and Samsung will be in VR.
Exciting times are ahead...
