Although this piece of news excites us for the headset’s release, don’t get heated up and wait for the WWDC 2022 event. As Apple may not launch the mixed reality headset at the June 6 WWDC event. In fact, several rumors have pointed out that the release is pushed further to 2023. It’s majorly because of the technical issues that have been bugging Apple and its team behind the headset.

While the launch may be next year, Apple is still expected to give us some tidbits about the mixed reality headset. These will be in the form of some software cues for developers. As sources suggest, Apple will be introducing a toolkit, where developers can add camera and voice functionality to their apps, which will allow for a hands-free experience with Apple’s headset. So, if not a launch, at least some hints about its software features could be seen at the WWDC.
Coming to the headset’s specifications, Apple is yet to spill beans on the device. However, the AR/VR headset is expected to use the finest tech in the industry. Highly sensitive 3D modules for hand tracking, multiple camera modules for eye-tracking, and two processors of the level of Apple’s M1 chipset, which currently powers the MacBook and iMac models, are expected to be used in the mixed reality headset.
The mixed reality headset is expected to support a 4K OLED microdisplay from Sony. It will also be focused and optimized for games, eventually rivaling the Oculus Quest.
