Scribbled Arrow

Apple is still silent on the rumored AR/VR headset. 

However, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported that the iPhone maker plans to ship 1.5 million units in 2023 for up to $2,000 and will sell the device face-mounted, as per MacRumors.

Kuo stated that Apple will unveil its headset at a January 2023 event. 

Kuo also said that the company had already shown the device to the board members. This could indicate that the headset is in the final stages.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request to comment.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman said that Apple's possible entry into virtual reality is a "pricey niche precursor" designed to prepare the tech giant to create an augmented reality headset.

This VR foray could help developers and consumers to get used to Apple's headset.

A headset from Apple could compete with the Meta Quest 2 or Sony's PlayStation VR 2, but at a higher price. 

The headset is expected to sell modestly considering its price.

Rumors claim that the Apple VR headset will feature 8K displays, eye tracking cameras, external cameras to create a mixed reality experience, and Apple's M1 processor. 

This processor was similar to the MacBook Air 2020 and MacBook Pro last year.
