Apple Mixed Reality headset design to cause production delays

Apple mixed reality (MR) headset speculations have circulated for almost as long as Apple Car rumours. Apple’s public pronouncements supporting the technology have many people hoping that the corporation will soon take on Microsoft and Facebook’s Oculus. However, according to Ming-chi Kuo, that soon has become not so soon.

Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, has been a vocal advocate of augmented and mixed reality, two of today’s most popular VR technologies. Despite this, the company’s augmented reality (AR) solutions are restricted to what can be done and viewed on the screen of an iPhone or iPad. While ARCore for iOS shows potential, a specialised AR or MR device is required to fully realise it. Those hoping for such a gadget, however, may have to wait much longer.

Originally planned to begin mass production in the second quarter of 2022, Kuo claims that the date has been moved back to the fourth quarter of the following year. The Apple MR headset could be ready in early 2023, assuming all goes according to plan, which is highly unlikely for a first-generation product. Apple could, of course, unveil the device sooner and make it available solely as a development kit.

Apple’s very rigorous standards, particularly in the headset design, are to blame for the delay. The startup has set lofty goals for itself, aiming for the greatest industrial design among contemporary AR and VR headsets. This could still be a different item than Apple’s rumoured AR spectacles, slated to be released in 2023.
