Apple is planning to launch its AR/VR Headset in the near future, and the device has attracted a lot of users. The company’s entry into the mixed reality category would mainstream the technology for the competition to follow. The AR Headset has been in the news for a while, with rumors suggesting that Apple will launch the machine sometime later this year. However, the product has not seen daylight, nor any of its components have been leaked until today. Today, Apple’s AR/VR Headset components have surfaced online in the latest leak.
Leaked images show Apple’s Mix Headset components for the first time
The leaked images of components of the Mixed Headset were shared by an unnamed Twitter account (via MacRumors). The images show leaked ribbon cables for different parts of the headset that potentially connects the display to the other internal circuits. The AR Headset was previously slated to feature numerous camera sensors on the outside and a high-resolution display. Possibly, the ribbon cable surrounding the display would be used for video output.
Apart from this, the second image purportedly shows a range of sensors arranged on the ribbon cable. These sensors could be used by the AR Headset to gather surrounding data that would be processed and sent via the first cable to the display. According to the publication, the shape of the leaked ribbon cables could be part of Apple’s Mixed Headset. However, no concrete details are available at this stage, and the final word rests with the Cupertino giant.
We have previously heard numerous details on Apple’s AR Headset, which includes the price and processing power of the machine. It was previously reported that the AR Headset will feature a price tag as high as $3,000 and will come in two variants. Additionally, it was also reported that Apple will launch a budget variant of the headset in the following years.
As for when you can expect it to launch, rumors have been coined that Apple might see fit to announce the AR Headset at its WWDC event in June. However, the headset will see daylight later in the year. There have been various references found in the iOS beta codes, including the one that suggests that the ‘realityOS’ or ‘rOS’ will be the name of the software that will run the AR Headset.
Take note that the final word rests with Apple, so be sure to take the news with a grain of salt. We will update you as soon as further details are available.
