Apple’s VR, AR headset plans: The latest rumors and reports
Taking a look at Apple’s other wearable devices could point to where Apple’s rumored glasses are heading. First came VR. Then came a wave of AR headsets that were high-priced and full of promises of wild mixed-reality worlds. Apple could be blending AR and VR with two different headsets in the next couple of years, but leading the way with a VR headset more like the Oculus Quest , according to a report in January by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman . It could be expensive: Maybe even $3,000 or more, with 8K displays, eye tracking and cameras that can scan the world and blend AR and VR together, according to a report from The Information .
An even more recent prediction by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple’s VR/AR headset is coming in 2022, with smart glasses around 2025, and maybe AR contact lenses after that.
Last year, reports on Apple’s AR/VR roadmap suggested internal disagreements at Apple, or a split strategy that could mean a VR headset first, and more normal-looking augmented reality smart glasses later.
