It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything regarding Apple’s mixed reality headset. The headgear is expected to be released in 2022, according to a report last year. The Apple AR/VR headset is expected to be released in early 2023, according to fresh information. To learn more about Apple’s future mixed reality headset, please continue reading this article.

9to5Mac claims that Apple’s first-ever mixed reality headset will not be released until 2023. Assuming the release date is accurate, Apple’s mixed reality headset will not be available during the next Worldwide Developers Conference in June of 2022. A further one to one-and-a-half million devices are expected to be sold during its first launch year.

The mixed reality headset is believed to blame for the delay. According to the source, Apple is having difficulties with the device’s cameras, software, and heat. AR/VR headsets have been reported to have two processors onboard, which is likely why the gadget is overheating. It is challenging to fit high-tech sensors into a headset’s small form factor.

iOS capabilities

Web-based apps and websites may make use of new iOS beta capabilities, according to developer Maximiliano Firtman. Several changes to Safari in iOS 15.4 imply compatibility for virtual reality (VR) headsets. The iOS version of Apple’s mobile operating system has also included push notifications for online apps. Additionally, the iOS 15.4 beta version includes the WebXR API for AR/VR headsets. Users will be able to access websites with AR/VR interfaces using these functionalities.

Even though these capabilities have not yet been activated on the iOS 15.4 beta, their existence indicates that Apple is focusing on an AR/VR headset and that it may be released soon. The Apple mixed reality headset was rumored to be released in 2022 earlier this year. Despite the lack of solid evidence on the Apple AR/VR headset’s release date, the recent iOS 15.4 updates seem encouraging.
