Apple’s AR headset, will have a CPU “with the same computational power level as the Mac,” and the Apple AR headset’s chip design will be the most important distinction between it and its competitors. Apple’s objective, according to Kuo, is to replace the iPhone with AR in ten years, and the AR headset is the first step toward that goal.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reveals more about the company’s long-rumored AR headset project, which is expected to ship in 2022.
As of today, one Apple expert is double down on his prediction that this headgear would be released in 4Q22 with two CPUs. “The higher-end CPU will have computational capabilities comparable to the M1 for Mac, while the lower-end processor will do sensor-related computing.”
About its screen, Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that it will be equipped with two Sony 4K micro OLED displays, which for the analyst indicates that it could also support VR.
Apple’s AR headset requires a separate processor as the computing power of the sensor is significantly higher than that of the iPhone. For example, the AR headset requires at least 6-8 optical modules to simultaneously provide continuous video see-through AR services to users. In comparison, an iPhone requires up to 3 optical modules running simultaneously and does not require continuous computing.
Kuo also says that “if the headset is positioned only as an accessory for the Mac or iPhone, it will not be conducive to the growth of the product. An AR headset that works independently means that it will have its own ecosystem and provide the most complete and flexible user experience.” This report conflicts with the Information story that said this product will need to be connected with an iPhone to work.
