Apple’s Mixed Reality Headset Rumored To Be Just Months Away From Launch

Apple’s plan for its upcoming mixed reality headset has been doing the rounds of the internet quite lately, revealing a lot about it; from an 8K panel to advanced eye-tracking technology, Cupertino giant’s bet for an AR headset seems to be getting more enjoyable with a recent Bloomberg report.

A recent report from Bloomberg suggests that the AR headset might be coming much sooner than we expected. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the Cupertino giant will be announcing its mixed reality headset in the coming several months. Unlike some previous announcements, this one would be happening offline in-person since an online demo won’t be enough for Apple’s AR ambitions. The best way to get the attention would be to let people experience it rather than pitching it online.

“Sometime in the next several months, the company is poised to announce a mixed reality headset, its first major new device since 2015. If possible, Apple won’t want to make such a critical announcement at an online event. It wants employees, the media, its partners and developers in the room.”

Cupertino giant’s invite for its upcoming WWDC has created lots of buzz lately because of what could be a subtle nod to the company’s AR plans. Well, the WWDC ’21 teaser image shows some icons inside a girl’s glasses, and Apple fanatics across the globe are considering it to be a hint for the rumoured AR glasses. We don’t know the motivation behind the image, but if it’s true, then it will be a hell of WWDC.

Chances could be that Apple might be giving a peek of its AR platform before unveiling the product later, allowing developers to prepare for the new platform before the rumoured AR glasses gets in the hand of consumers.

The mixed reality glasses are said to be targeted towards enterprise users. Moreover, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the glasses will be portable, eliminating the need for wires, suggesting it to be a similar experience as Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2. Further, it is said to feature hybrid ultra-short focal length Fresnel lenses and swappable 8K displays along with 15 cameras for AR/VR with a hefty price tag of $3000.
