The publication, citing insiders, writes that specifically to conclude a deal to acquire Next VR, which has experienced financial problems in recent years, Apple could open a special “shell” company.
Sources say that the deal may amount to about $ 100 million and, despite the fact that the deal has not yet been finalized, Next VR employees were informed that they would have to move from the city of San Diego to, “presumably” , one of the areas of Cupertino (where is the headquarters of Apple).
