Immediately after WWDC 2021, popular Chinese analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed when Apple plans to unveil its augmented reality helmet.
According to the analyst, if everything goes according to plan, the new product should be announced in 2022. More precisely, in April, May or June. The supplier of components for the device will be the Taiwanese company Genius Electronic Optical (GSEO). By the way, she also supplies spare parts for the iPhone 13.
The helmet is expected to come with a Sony Micro-OLED display. It will receive two modes of operation: transparent for AR content and opaque for VR. In total, the device must have 15 cameras. Also, the new product is credited with supporting branded services (Apple TV +, Apple Arcade) and a price tag around $1,000.
The gadget will weigh about 200-300 grams. You will need a PC or laptop to use the helmet.
