For several years we have been hearing rumors about a possible Apple device for virtual reality and augmented reality. Little by little its launch date is approaching and now everything seems to indicate that we will have two different devices, one focused on virtual reality and the other on augmented reality.
The launch of these two devices is much closer than we thought, at least that is what Mark Gurman has revealed. The famous Apple leaker ensures that virtual reality glasses, Oculus or PlayStation VR style, will be released in 2022, and that the Augmented reality ‘Apple Glass’ will arrive in 2023.
According to their new report, published in Bloomberg, these two devices will be Apple’s entry into a new market, something that had not happened since the launch of the Apple Watch.
Own processors, high resolution displays and more expensive than the competition
This plan from Apple is quite strange, since it seems that the company does not expect similar success to the iPhone. According to Gurman, the first device we will see will be a virtual reality helmet similar to the ones we have on the market. That is, it will be mainly focused on show a 3D digital environment for games, videos and to communicate.
«Apple’s typical playbook involves taking emerging consumer technologies such as music players, smartphones, tablets, and smart watches, and making it reliable and easy to use for everyone. This time, however, Apple is not looking to create an iPhone-like hit. Instead, the company is building a high-end niche product that will prepare external developers and consumers for its future more mainstream augmented reality glasses.«.
This virtual reality headset could be intended more for developers and professional users than to the general public, but you never know as Apple’s plan is not entirely clear. This device could have a chime close to $ 1,000.
Gurman says that Apple will use its own processors, which even outperform Apple’s M1 processors, displays with a much higher resolution than current devices, a fan and a system so that users with glasses can use it without problems.
These virtual reality headsets have an internal name N301 and are in a late prototype phase, so Gurman expects a release next year. On the other hand, augmented reality glasses, known as N421, are still under development and could arrive in 2023.
It is certainly a very ambitious project, and we will see if Apple can give the push that virtual and augmented reality is lacking. These two projects are very promising, although much remains to be explained by Apple.
