Whilerumors of Apples AR/VR headset have already beengoing swimming for a long time, things are needs to enter into focus. If the most recent reports are accurate, Apples upcoming VR headset will undoubtedly be bonkers in more ways than one.
IN-MAY, we reported that Apple was revealing its mixed reality headset to executives and the board of directors, suggesting a release is imminent. Now, were hearing it might get to early 2023 with a crazy expensive price.
Famous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently posted on Twitter, suggesting Apples rumored VR/AR headset will definitely cost from $2,000 to $2,500 when it arrives. I dont find out about you, but thats rather expensive, even though its consistent with a lot of Cupertinos other products. It appears like the business may only manufacture and sell roughly 1.5 million units at that price. Even though that appears like a whole lot, its a little number for an organization like Apple.
Rumors and renders shared by THE INFO in 2021 claimed Apples AR headset would pack two ultra-HD 8K screens and use over twelve cameras to track hand and eye movement. If true, this wearable could deliver among the best visual experiences up to now.
Furthermore, Apple might use a variation of its powerful M1 Pro chip from the MacBook Pro in the headset, giving it a lot of capacity to push those dual 8K screens. After those reports, we started hearing a variety of potential price points, which range from $1,000 to more than $3,000 for a high-end Apple AR/VR headset.
Delivering a mixed reality experience with two 8K displays is bonkers, but so is asking over $2,000 for the merchandise. However, that likely wont stop enthusiasts from purchasing one.
And lastly, in accordance with Kou, Apple has finalized its first-gen product and has already been busy focusing on a second-generation AR/VR headset that needs to be a lot more affordable when it arrives sometime in 2025. In any event, hopefully to see or hear more soon.
