Apple AR/VR Headset Rumoured To Launch In 2022

Apple’s AR/VR headset may launch this year, according to rumors.

Apple AR VR Headset

An Apple VR headset has been in the works for years now, according to Ming-Chi Juo, Apple analyst, the company even plans to launch the AR/VR headset later this year. However, predictions suggest Apple will limit the number of headsets available at launch.

Larger shipments of the Apple AR/VR headset will be available in the first quarter of 2023. As often happens when new tech is scarce, customers will likely have difficulty acquiring a headset upon launch. Likewise, purchasing an Apple AR/VR headset in time for the 2022 holiday season may not be an easy feat.

The headset utilizes “3P pancake lenses”, according to MacRumors, which allow for the reflection of light between the display and lenses. This will enable Apple to create a slenderer VR headset than those already on the market.

Apple’s new AR/VR headset will focus on entertainment, gaming, and FaceTime features. Rumors suggest Apple is even creating shows specifically for virtual reality. Little other information about the headset is currently available. However, this hasn’t stopped consumers from speculating. Currently, Apple users are debating whether the headset will work in tandem with the iPhone or whether the delays in production are due to Apple wanting the product’s hardware to support itself.

Apple faces steep competition in the realm of virtual reality headsets. Oculus and Valve are already established in the market with some of the best-rated VR headsets. PlayStation also has a VR headset, with Rumors circulating that Sony plans to launch the PSVR 2 shortly. Soon VR headsets may be competing with virtual reality monitors – Brelyon recently showcased their VR-enabled Ultra Reality monitors.

Apple, which was founded in 1976, is an American technology company. Since January 2021, Apple has been the world’s most valuable company, and its mission is to bring optimal computing to users worldwide.
