Microsoft sent out invites to journalists today for a press reception at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. The event could see the unveiling of HoloLens 2.MWC is the last week of February and the Microsoft event will be held ahead of the conference on Sunday, February 24 at 8 am Pacific (5 pm Central European Time). It’ll be hosted by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, CVP Julia White and Technical Fellow Alex Kipman. Kipman is heavily involved with Microsoft AR and VR efforts and the timing of the press conference falls in line with a report that Microsoft targeted early 2019 for its follow up to the original HoloLens.Late last year Microsoft got a big endorsement for its AR technology in the form of a huge contract to supply hardware to the United States military. When it comes to consumers, though, we’ll be curious to see what features Microsoft plans to roll into its next generation.

Microsoft is expanding its Project xCloud service to the iPhone today. The software giant is launching a beta of xCloud through Apple’s TestFlight service, allowing xCloud testers to try the service on an iPhone or iPad. It’s the first time we’ve seen a cloud game streaming service appear on iOS since the days of OnLive — and OnLive’s iOS app wound up in limbo when Apple didn’t approve it.
