It has been rumored for quite some time that Apple's next AR/VR gadget would be the Mixed Reality headset, but expert Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the firm may be forced to postpone the release of the device due to software issues. Rumors has suggested that this gadget will be the company's next push into the AR/VR market.
There have been rumors that software issues are delaying the release of Apple's
projected AR/VR headgear until the second half of 2023. The Information broke the news to the general public.
According to Kuo, the bulk shipments for the components of the gadget are scheduled to start somewhere in the first half of 2023, but the delivery of the device once it has been totally made could not begin until the second half of the year. Even if Apple makes the announcement for the product earlier in the year, as a result of the implications of this circumstance, there will still be a delay in the launch of the product.
Prior to this report, Kuo had speculated that Apple's AR/VR gadget or the Mixed Reality headset may be unveiled during a media event in January, with widespread distribution starting in the second quarter. It is currently uncertain whether or not the debut of the gadget will be delayed as a result of the delay in delivery.
If Apple doesn't announce the device in the first few months of 2023, the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June of that year would be a good time for the company to show off the new devices and release the SDK for developers to start making augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) apps for it.
When it comes to the cost of the future product from Apple, Ming-Chi Kuo anticipates that it will be on the higher end of the spectrum. Because of the price, he believes that the number of units that the firm will ship in the year 2023 will be fewer than 500,000. We won't have any additional information about the capabilities of the gadget or its cost until a few more weeks or months have passed.
