Why Apple’s AR/VR headset may disappoint you this year

Apple’s AR/VR glasses are one of the gadgets most looked forward to this year. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo now comes out with an update.

2022 should be the year of Apple’s AR/VR headset. The gadget has been speculated about for a long time, but it seems that the glasses will be announced this year. Still, there is no reason to start cheering right away.

Good and bad news about Apple’s AR/VR headset

One rumor after another has been coming out in recent weeks. The source of many of those news are well-known leakers like Mark Gurman of Bloomberg and the Korean Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo. The latter now comes with good and bad news at the same time.

Let’s start with the good news. According to Kuo, Apple’s AR/VR glasses will be presented this year. The gadget would then be available for pre-order in November or December. The bad news is that the release of the glasses has been postponed. Shipping of the product will not take place until the first quarter of 2023. So it looks like you’ll have to wait a while for the device.

While you might expect an Apple product to be in stores soon after an announcement, sometimes that’s not the case. The company did the same thing earlier with the AirPods Max. It was announced in December 2020, but didn’t hit the market until March 2020.

These specs the glasses may have

Kuo previously revealed that Apple’s AR/VR glasses are much more advanced than those of the competition. For example, it would include two Micro OLED screens and one Amoled panel. It would also contain advanced sensors. The renders are inspired by the AirPods Max and the Apple Watch. That this model can do more than that of competitors like Microsoft and Oculus is also reflected in the price. The gadget could cost more than $3,000.
