More often than not, Apple rumors aren't all that surprising. Even if they don't pan out into a real product, they typically seem credible enough to believe. Even the crazy ones. For example, Apple bringing back the iPod in 2022.
Apple's rumored augmented reality (AR) glasses are unlikely to make an early 2022 launch as previously anticipated, claims a new report from Apple's supply chain.
It has been rumored for quite some time that Apple is working on various virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) headsets/glasses. And now a new rumor says Apple may be waiting to unveil one of those devices for an in-person event.
Apple is aiming to keep the weight of its visor-like mixed reality (MR) headset under 150 grams, or half as much as typical virtual reality (VR) headsets that weigh in at more than 300 grams.
Apple could launch a mixed reality headset in 2022, with a new report claiming the rumored device would feature a sophisticated user-friendly system to precisely track the user's gaze.
Apple's rumored mixed reality (MR) headset could incorporate a bunch of cameras to offer image pass-through operations in both augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) modes.
It appears that Apple's rumored headset is indeed getting real, with a new supply-chain report naming chip maker TSMC as the supplier of micro OLED displays for use in the device.
Interesting details regarding Apple's upcoming augmented reality and virtual reality products continue trickling in, with a new report spitting out fresh information about the technical specifications of the first Apple-branded mixed reality headset accessory.
A new report has it that Apple's first virtual reality (VR) headset may be arriving next year, featuring the design close to that of other brands and carrying a price tag of $500.
Apple has announced that Dan Riccio, its SVP of Hardware Engineering, will be transitioning to a new role reporting to CEO Tim Cook. At the same time, its Vice President of Hardware Engineering, John Ternus, has been promoted to lead Apple's hardware engineering across the company as a member of the executive team. Reading between the lines, the executive shuffle could mean that Apple's rumored AR/VR headset could indeed be inching closer to shipping.
Apple's upcoming mixed reality headset (AR and VR) will apparently be "a pricey, niche precursor" to the company's eventual augmented reality glasses, which is being described as a way more ambitious project that's taking longer to develop than originally anticipated.
Apple's augmented reality (AR) glasses are expected to arrive in 2021, and now Sony has been mentioned as a probably supplier of sophisticated OLED panels for the rumored accessory.
