The real-life environment of the owners, meaning that Apple device can display messages, notifications and emails in their line of sight, AR headsets and smart glasses override digital data.
The devices, which will have two controllers and support a “comprehensive range of equipment”, will be on sale in the last three months of 2022, according to a study by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
“We predict that Apple’s AR headset which will be launched in 4Q22 will be equipped with two systems,” said a report by Mr. Kuo found by technology expert Mac Rumors.
“The high-end processor will have the same computing power as the M1 for the Mac, while the low-end processor will have the same computing performance.”
Apple has been working on a wearable form factor that has been around for years, despite both AR and VR (virtual reality) headsets being slow to capture the user’s first impression.
Rumors have been circulating that he plans to build an AR headset to eventually replace the iPhone – Apple’s best-selling product and the most lucrative product – back in 2017, in the hopes of having the technology ready to sell through. 2019, but the device has no hardware at all.
It has garnered numerous certifications around enhanced reality and head-to-head displays such as 2008, including for a headset with a slot for a smartphone, in the form of Samsung’s Gear VR and Google’s Daydream View headphones – both has stopped.
A similar report says that Apple is working on a pair of smart glasses to compete with the broken Google Glass in 2016, discuss the possibility of manufacturing with manufacturers and order smaller sizes of close-up displays.
Apple has been leading AR in voice for some time. It introduces ARKit, its strategy for developers to create AR applications for the iPhone iOS system in 2017, while CEO Tim Cook has previously said the company is “high on AR for a long time”.
“We are already seeing things that will change the way we work, play, connect and learn,” he said during an asset call with analysts later that year.
“Simply put, we believe AR will change the way technology is used forever.”
