It’s no secret that Apple believes augmented reality is the future. The company has made various investments in AR technology and there have been rumors that a headset is being worked on for the future. That future might not be too far off, as analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple’s AR headset could hit the market in late 2022.
Kuo goes on to claim that the AR headset will have a pair of chipsets, one of which appears to be based on the M1 chipset that Apple introduced for its Mac computers in late 2020. One of the chipsets will be more powerful and more powerful than the main processor, while a low-end chipset will be used to handle the sensor-related aspects of the device.
This won’t be an AR-only headset, so don’t expect a Google Glass-like device just yet. Instead, it appears to be some sort of mixed reality headset, which Kuo says has a pair of Sony 4K micro OLED displays that allow the headset to support both virtual reality and augmented reality.
What’s interesting is that Apple plans to make this a standalone device that doesn’t require connection to other Apple products like the Mac or iPhone. It’s unclear how much this headset could cost, but we’ve heard it won’t be cheap and that it may be aimed at developers first rather than consumers, but we’ll have to wait until 2022 to find out how true this report is is is.
