2022 could end up being a lot more interesting than we thought. Mark Gurman revealed key information for Apple’s upcoming augmented and virtual reality viewer from Bloomberg: Tim Cook has already taught it to the company’s board. And this means that its development is already very advanced.
The first completely new product launch since 2015
The source comments that Apple’s board of directors typically meets in person at least four times a year, so it’s not a coincidence that one of those meetings was used by the eight board members to test the new one. device. It’s not the final and definitive version, but it will surely be something very close to that. We could see his presentation “in a few months”
Naturally, there are no details on how these directors would react, but the reunion must have been fun. Gurman insists that the helmet will combine virtual reality and augmented reality interfaces in its rOS system
It is also recalled that the helmet will integrate chips of a power similar to that of current Macs (we are talking about a more powerful version of the M1, so perhaps it refers to the M2) and very high resolution screens for Show content. The viewer will work completely independently and you won’t need a Mac or an iPhone
It is therefore expected that this Apple viewer will be launched either at the end of 2022 or at the beginning of 2023 by a price above $2,000. The company estimates that the Apple Store will sell at least one viewer per day, hoping that for now it will only be a niche product that will gradually grow over the years.
