The rumor: We are still many months away from getting our hands on the next major Apple release, according to Jeff Pu (50% accurate, via 9to5Mac).
- While not certain, Pu says that Apple’s mixed-reality headset “may face a slight delay for the first quarter of 2023”
- This aligns with prior rumors from Mark Gurman (86.4% accurate), who also believes that the first units may ship in early 2023, with an announcement taking place later this year
Sam’s take: It sounds like this headset, considering it is something entirely new, probably won’t be in our hands until early 2023. I certainly don’t believe the announcement will happen this late…but the launch seems likely around then. Maybe we get surprised and get it earlier! But my expectation is shipping early next year.
