NEW DELHI: 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.
The report also suggests that Luxshare is expected to remain one of the main suppliers for Apple devices that will be launched between late 2022 and 2024. Now a new report has revealed that LG is rumoured to start 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.
For those unaware, MicroOLED tech is mainly an OLED which will be mounted on a silicon substrate. This MicroOLED is also called OLED on Silicon or OLEDoS and it is expected to be used for virtual, augmented and mixed reality devices.
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.
