Curiosity grew

Halfway through 2022, June's WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) is just around the corner, and the Apple AR/VR headset that many people have been waiting for for a long time seems to be really about to debut.

According to Bloomberg, Apple's board of directors has shown off a headset capable of supporting both augmented and virtual reality. In addition, Apple is already accelerating the development of the operating system "Reality OS" that will run on this headset.

The device entity is shown, and it has also entered the accelerated development stage of the software. In March of this year, Apple's patent application information was also displayed on the Sky Eye Check, which showed that the application involved facial joints and head-mounted displays, and the increasingly clear details showed that the development of the product was gradually coming to an end.

A few years ago, it was reported that Apple launched an AR/VR headset, but during this period, the product's software, camera and overheating problems have repeatedly delayed its appearance time. The expectations that people have accumulated have also gradually increased, and they are more and more curious about whether it will be the next "world-changing" product in Apple, which emphasizes both technology and design.

According to the information and renderings disclosed by many parties at present, the appearance of Apple's AR/VR headset is similar to Meta's Quest 2 headset, the display part covers the eyes and its upper and lower parts, and the overall strap similar to apple Watch is fixed to the user's head.

The hardware and performance section will be equipped with two 4K OLED micro-monitors, about 15 cameras responsible for picture projection, a processor with computing power equivalent to M1-class chips, a large battery to keep the device running, at least 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage... In addition, it may have features such as eye tracking and gesture detection.

While it doesn't look lightweight overall, in order to achieve the desired functionality, this AR/VR headset must have enough space to accommodate a variety of devices. However, Tianfeng International analyst Guo Mingqi once mentioned that in order to allow users to have a better immersive experience, Apple's AR/VR headset may only weigh about 100 to 200 grams.

In terms of overall appearance and performance, this headset is worth looking forward to. Therefore, in the news about the price, it is believed that it should not be cheap, and it is expected to be around 2000 to 3000 US dollars.

It is worth mentioning that it is said that in addition to this AR/VR headset, Apple also intends to launch a smart glasses AR/VR device, which will pay more attention to AR functions and experiences, but a more specific release plan is still unknown.

Nowadays, although Apple's AR/VR headset has entered the late stage of development, people's curiosity has become more and more intense, not only the appearance, performance, name... And its positioning in Apple's many products, will it rely on devices such as iPhones as accessories? Or do you have your own ecosystem for content transmission?

At this pace, while it's unlikely to see it at WWDC in 2022, it's not far away. After waiting and waiting, we can finally know the answers that these curiosities point to.
