Apple said to be holding January 2023 event for AR/VR headset unveil
The rumor: We are just half a year away from seeing Apple’s next major product unveil, according to Ming-Chi Kuo (72.5% accurate).
- With no mention of the headset at WWDC last week, a concrete timeline for the headset’s release has been in question
- Kuo suggests the following: announcement event in January 2023 with a dev kit to follow, pre-orders in the second quarter or the year and a public release prior to WWDC in June
- Apple’s AR/VR headset has been long-rumored and is said to bring multiple high resolution displays and cameras to a portable, lightweight device with multiple M-series chips to power the experience
- As for the price, it’s said to cost between $2-3k with most Apple stores only selling one a day
Sam’s take: Honestly, this sounds like a pretty realistic timeline at this point. As much as I want to see it announced this year…a standalone media event for something this big does sound appropriate. That being said…the Apple Watch was announced at the end of an iPhone event in 2014…so perhaps we see a glimpse of this headset sometime this September?
