Apple is expected to unveil the mixed-reality headset at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference. Although Apple has yet to announce a date for the WWDC, we expect it to take place in June, as it did last year.
The Verge also stated that the corporation has postponed the launch because hardware and software concerns have yet to be rectified. Dan Riccio, Apple’s former hardware executive who took over control of the company’s AR and VR initiatives in 2021, has also apparently gotten “increasingly active,” according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.
The tech titan has been working on an AR/VR headset since 2015. It was supposed to go official in June 2022, but it was pushed back to January 2023, then again to “spring” with no explanation. In addition, reports have surfaced claiming that Apple will release the MR headset in June.
Although the story has recently leaked, it has yet to be confirmed, so if there are several delays, only those who work in Cupertino will know the true explanation.
The main topic of discussion is the reason for the extended delay, which feels like it is taking longer than intended.
While the device is expected to be unveiled at Apple’s WorldWide Development Conference (WWDC) in June 2023, it has also been suggested that it will be available to customers by the end of this year (time not specified at the time of writing).
What is to be expected from the mixed reality headset?
According to the source, the mixed reality headgear is slated to be Apple Inc.’s next big push. This might assist the corporation in entering a long-anticipated new product sector. This will allow Apple to make additional money aside from the sale of iPhones, which apparently account for more than half of its sales.
According to rumors, Apple has been working for years to develop the best-in-class headset, but failure to do so is the primary reason for the delay.Whenever the MR headset is released, it may dominate the market in terms of features and accuracy.
According to The Verge, the headset might be the company’s flagship product, and in a year, it will allegedly be recognised for the absence of substantial upgrades to the Apple Watch, iPad, and AirPods.
