APPLE is reportedly working on a top-secret headset — and it could be out very soon.
The ultra-confidential device hasn’t been officially confirmed, but many insiders say it’s almost ready.
What is the Apple Headset?
Most of the biggest names in tech have already released some kind of headset.
It could be virtual reality (a fully computer-generated space) or augmented reality, where graphics are overlaid on the world around you.
We’ve seen products from Google, Microsoft, Samsung and Facebook – but nothing from Apple yet.
But behind closed doors, Apple is said to have hundreds of employees working on VR and AR projects.
The latest rumors suggest we’ll be seeing two different headsets.
The first is expected to land next year, which should look like a regular headset.
These are probably mixed reality glasses that offer both VR and AR.
Then we’re in for slimmer AR glasses across the board – although the release is uncertain.
The first headset is said to be similar to the existing VR headsets, albeit with a smaller and lighter design.
We expect high-density displays, hand tracking, spatial audio, and a new realityOS operating system.
It’s said to support its own dedicated app store, although it’s not clear what content will be available on it.
Apple headset release date and price
Unfortunately, there is no definitive answer when it comes to the release date and price of an Apple headset.
We’ve heard a lot of leaks and rumors, but nothing official from Apple.
The first headset is expected to come out in 2023, with a possible announcement earlier this year.
And rumor has it we’ll see prices in the north in the $2,000-$2,300 region.
That’s significantly more than most competing products on the market today.
For example, Facebook’s entry-level Meta Quest 2 starts at just $399 (but was $299 until recently).
How much the second headset will cost is unclear.
In any case, all these details are still based on leaks.
Even if they are true at the moment, Apple’s plans could change at any time.
We won’t know the truth until Apple CEO Tim Cook takes the stage and unveils a headset.
