There’s a lot of talk about Apple’s mixed reality headset, which is expected to combine AR and virtual reality technologies in a single device. At the same time, however, the company has also been working on a new pair of separate AR glasses. According to Haitong International Tech Research analyst Jeff Pu, Apple AR The glasses will be announced in late 2024.
The analyst claims that Luxshare Precision, a Chinese electronics manufacturing company, will remain one of Apple’s top device providers between 2022 and 2024, starting with the iPhone 14. The analyst also believes that Apple plans to introduce new AR glasses. in the second half of 2024. At this time, details about Apple’s AR glasses are unknown. What we do know so far is that, unlike Apple’s AR/VR headset, the new AR glasses will rely heavily on the iPhone, mainly due to its design limitations. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in 2019 that the rumored “Apple Glasses” will act more like a secondary display for the iPhone, similar to the first-generation Apple Watch, and have very little standalone functionality. Apple’s mixed reality headset, on the other hand, will have a more robust design to accommodate its powerful hardware, which will be capable of processing AR and VR content and rendering it in high resolution on its own and independently of other Apple devices. . Interestingly, although most of the rumors are still focused on the first generation of Apple AR/VR headsets, Pu mentioned in his report that the company is already planning the introduction of the second generation of its headsets in late 2024 along with the new AR glasses. And, unsurprisingly, the analyst still believes that the new Apple headset will be introduced in early 2023. Apple has been betting on AR/VR for quite some time. Unfortunately, Apple likely won’t be showing off its VR/AR headset anytime soon, mainly because Apple hasn’t been able to iron out some of the issues yet and isn’t ready for a demo. What Apple will do is introduce a bunch of developer tools, and probably realityOS, the operating system for VR/AR headsets. Via: FirstPost
