StarBoard frameworks on iOS 13 now. StarBoard is Apple’s system shell for stereo augmented reality apps (headset). Guess secrecy is out?

The GameController framework in iOS 13 also has a gamepad profile for a device meant to be used while using stereo AR apps. The controller profile has a clicky trackpad, a trigger button, and a system (home?) button. Handheld controller for Apple's headset? 🤔

From the StarBoardServices framework. StarBoard seems to attach a UIScene to the OS much like CarPlay or an external display might. Very curious to see whether the headset or the iPhone runs the StarBoard shell itself, but seems very much like the iPhone does the rendering

It seems very much like Stereo AR apps are an app extension type you can include in your iOS app bundle, if you have the entitlements. One imagines that when Apple's headset is attached, it has a dashboard of some kind that shows you your available Stereo AR apps (like CarPlay)

The iOS 13 GM also comes with a readme file (!) for how employees can run Stereo AR apps on an iPhone when you don't have access to Apple's headset 😳

Could HME stand for Head Mounted Eyewear, and be a moniker modeled on HMD, Head Mounted Display?

Would you know if it needs to be attached to a specific device?

Rumors are saying that it’s a tethered device that uses an iPhone for processing like the Magic Leaps lightpack. Presumably it will only work on iPhone 11 (maybe X if we’re lucky!) and up.
