In its latest edition of Light up bulletin, Bloomberg Mark Gurman talks about Apple’s long-rumored mixed reality device that could finally launch as early as next year. This is not the first time that Gurman has reported on this mixed reality device. Apple has been planning one for a few years now and it looks like it’s almost ready to be announced.
Apple plans to launch its own expensive device with advanced chips, displays, sensors, and avatar-based features as early as next year.
Earlier this year, a report claimed that this new mixed reality device could cost at least $ 3,000, which corroborates what Gurman said about the device being expensive. As Apple is already wowing its users with the new M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, it’s only a matter of time before the company can combine all of these parts together.
In his newsletter, Mark Gurman also explains whether this new Apple headset will play games or just focus on augmented reality, because even new Macs have one of the most powerful chips ever, macOS is not a great one. gaming platform and even though Apple Arcade continues to add more games, Apple itself still cannot compete with Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo.
Here, Gurman says that this headset will have “both AR and VR capabilities,” and what Apple is aiming for is a “mixed reality experience that can handle high-quality virtual reality games.” He writes:
Apple’s first headset will be a mixed reality type. This means that it will have both AR and VR capabilities. While gaming can be done in both environments, virtual reality is what you want for really high performance games with top notch graphics. For Apple’s first headset, that’s what it aims for: a mixed reality experience that can handle high-quality VR games with eye-catching chips and high-end displays.
Then, in his last sentence, Gurman gives the best information: “Years from now you will see a real AR headset only.” This corroborates all of Tim Cook’s latest statements about his enthusiasm for an augmented reality future.
