After the iPhone 13 unveiled, Apple received a certain amount of well-deserved criticism. However, a fresh report suggests the company has an ace up its sleeve for 2022 in the form of a new AR headset.
In a posting by Digitimes, citing information from the supply chain, it is claimed that Apple has completed the second phase of testing a prototype of the first AR headset in its history. Next, it is planned to move to the next stage, which is called Engineering Verification Testing (EVT).
It is expected that mass production of the gadget will begin in the second quarter of 2022, and it will go on sale in the second half of 2022.
The report mentions that the two big Apple products due out next year are the Apple Car and the Apple AR headset. Ever since Ford lured away Apple Car chief executive Doug Field, rumors about an Apple car have dwindled, allowing the public to focus on the AR headset.
The report notes that Apple CEO Tim Cook has repeatedly stated that AR will change the way of life for humanity, and looks forward to the development of AR. However, according to reports, the Apple CEO is unhappy with the heat dissipation, weight and battery life of the headset under development.
