According to a leaked report, Apple’s Augmented Reality headset will be as powerful as Mac and will be launched in 2022.
A research note from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has reportedly been seen 9to5Mac says that the headset will have a processor “with the same computing power level as the Mac.”
The headset will be able to operate independently without relying on a Mac or iPhone, and supports a “broad range of applications rather than specific applications.”
Kuo suggests that Apple aims to replace the iPhone with augmented reality technology within a decade.
“The higher-end processors will have the same computing power as the M1 for Mac, while the lower-end processors will be in charge of sensor-related computing”, he also says.
The headset will feature two Sony 4K Micro OLED displays that potentially support virtual reality applications.
“Apple’s AR headset requires a different processor because the computing power of the sensor is much higher than that of the iPhone. For example, an AR headset is required to provide users with AR services through continuous video viewing. 6-8 optical modules are required. In comparison, an iPhone requires three optical modules running simultaneously and does not require continuous computing”, the note reportedly said.
The report claims that the headset will be positioned as an independent product rather than an accessory for other Apple products to encourage development.
However, previous reports about the product have suggested that it will rely on the iPhone to perform its functions similar to the earlier Apple Watches.
Other leaks suggest that Apple is actually planning two different versions of the headset. The first will offer high-end VR capabilities but at a higher price, which may be aimed at developers.
The more mainstream version will have smaller hardware and a lower price point, aimed primarily at augmented reality, with the latter expected to follow.
Apple did not respond to a request for comment Granthshala before the time of publication.
As well as Apple, Facebook has also said it is working on a pair of augmented reality glasses called Project Area, which will “add a 3D layer of useful, context-relevant and meaningful information on top of the physical world.” will give”.
