Apple’s mixed-reality headset may launch this spring
Bloomberg's Mark Gurman predicts
After years of development, Apple's long-rumoured mixed-reality headset will reportedly be unveiled to the world this spring.
According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, the tech giant is likely to show off its combined augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) headset in the coming months, ahead of its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June.
Apple has already reportedly shared the headset with “a small number of high-profile software developers” so they can start creating third-party apps for it.
After announcing "Reality Pro" in the spring, Gurman expects Apple to release the device in the fall alongside new iPhones and other updated Apple devices. The new operating system for the headset may be called “xrOS.”
The Reality Pro headset is rumoured to be priced at around $3,000. This would be over seven times as much as Meta’s popular Quest 2 ($400) and double the price of its premium headset, the Quest Pro ($1,500).
