The long-awaited device of specialists may not be so much on the market side, which will not really surprise the most picky analysts.
You may not know it, but Apple is organizing its major annual conference for developers from June 6th . For the occasion, we should discover the novelties of iOS 16 and macOS Mammoth if the rumors are true. But the star product of the event could be quite different.
Indeed, for several months the rumors of the hallway concerning the arrival of a mixed reality headset signed by the Apple brand have been multiplying constantly. And today, two influencers who are often well-informed about Cupertino’s secret plans are trying to tell us more about it.
The first is none other than Ming-Chi Kuo, now a famous Taiwanese researcher working for TFI Securities. For the expert, there would thus be no question of any virtual or augmented reality headset during WWDC 2022. And for good reason: the device would not have yet started its large-scale production, a necessary step several weeks before the availability of stocks.
Same thing for realityOS , supposed name of the operating system of the beast.
The opinion of Robert Scoble
For Robert Scoble, a podcaster based in the heart of Silicon Valley, the matter is a little more complex. The creator indeed believes that new AR products will be well presented at the next Worldwide Developer Conference, but as its name suggests, intended for publishers only. They would then be offered a new working environment to create three-dimensional scenes , the first step in a series of announcements rolled out over several quarters.
It is only in January 2023 that the material would be unveiled to the general public according to Scoble, a date however unlikely given that Apple tends to come out of the shadows around March.
The marketing of the product, meanwhile, would require waiting until June 2023, when another WWDC should be organized. We could then discover there a helmet with M1 chip , based on the large-scale neural capacities of the house processor which do not seem to be exploited to their maximum to date.
As a reminder, the price of the one that the media tend to nickname “Apple View” is likely to exceed one thousand euros from its debut in Europe.
