Apple has long been rumored to be working on its very own mixed reality headset. However, it seems like that launch schedule for this new product has been delayed due to various reasons. So let’s have a look.
The news arrives from known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. He had previously claimed that the mixed reality headset from the Cupertino based giant was seeing various hurdles in development. This led to delays in the announcement of the AR/VR headset. Now, Kuo has doubled down on this prediction, stating that the revealing and the release of the device will be pushed back. Apple reportedly had planned to announce its first ever headset via a dedicated event this January 2023.
However, it appears that the AR/VR headset release has been postponed to Apple’s Spring event or possibly even as late as the WWDC 2023 event where it typically unveils new software tech. Kuo also added that the mixed reality headset development is behind schedule to due issues with mechanical component drop testing and the availability of software development tools. So the mass shipments might also be delayed from the original Q2 2023 timeline to the end of this same period or to Q3 2023.
The design and finer details regarding the Apple headset is still at large, although previous reports have suggested that it will feature 15 cameras all around. It could also pack a ton of head tracking sensors, along with spatial audio support, sport dual 8K OLED displays, and pack the latest M2 chipset. This is all the information we have regarding this matter, so stick around for more updates.
