Apple’s first AR headset will be released in the fourth quarter of 2022, according to a research note from analyst Ming-chi Kuo seen by MacRumors and 9to5Mac. Kuo predicted in March that the headset would be available sometime next year, and he is now providing more technical details about the device.
According to Kuo, the headset will have two processors, one with "the same level of computing power as M1" and one lower-end chip to handle input from the various sensors. For example, Kuo claims that the headset has "at least 6-8 optical modules to provide continuous video see-through AR services at the same time." The headset is also said to have two Sony 4K OLED microdisplays.
