Metaverse rumor that Apple will be releasing a mixed reality headset that’s able to deliver augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) experiences. But a recent report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman revealed that it could also come with Apple’s flagship M2 processor.
It’s said that the mixed reality headset would be launched as early as January 2023, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo notes that the headset is “the most complicated product Apple has ever designed” but that its release could help fuel “rapid growth” in the market for these headsets.
There’s more of a demand for going into AR and VR worlds online since the COVID-19 pandemic when people were encouraged to social distance. For now, there might not be as large of demand with borders opening up and loosened restrictions. But companies are still going full steam ahead with the “metaverse”.
Gurman’s prediction for the Apple headset states that it will include not only the new M2 chip, but with 16GB of RAM. That headset comes with 6GB of RAM and the Snapdragon XR2 Platform, by comparison.
