Apple is reportedly working on its mixed reality (MR) headset that will combine augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). A recent online leak revealed that the Cupertino-based tech giant is developing its AR glasses that are expected to be unveiled in the second half of 2024. Now a new report has surfaced online revealing some more information about the headset.
According to a report by 9to5Mac, the prototype of the yet-to-launch Apple AR glasses is now ready. The report also adds that the glasses would be ready by the end of this year.
The report also revealed that Corning and Hoya were sampling the glass and the glasses are now in the developmental stage. The Apple AR Glasses are also expected to enter the mass production stage by the end of this year.
Another online report suggests that LG has reportedly started producing microOLED displays for Apple’s upcoming mixed reality headsets.
According to a report by Elec publication, LG is said to begin the production of microOLED displays soon. The company is expected to supply these displays to Apple for its mixed reality headsets. The report also adds that Apple may use Sony‘s microLED panel for the screen on its MR headset, whereas the LG Display is tipped to provide the outer screen.
ARKit, which is Apple’s AR platform, was launched in 2017 to enable developers to create for iPhones and iPads.
At WWDC 2022, Apple didn’t launch an AR/VR headset nor did it talk elaborately about either tech. But there were enough glimpses — in the world of AR. The Home app has been redesigned and has a lot of AR influence. Live Text will get video support and once again will rely on AR to deliver accurate results.
