Apple is set to postpone its AR glass development. This news is coming as apple has now put the development of the device on indefinite hold due to technical reasons and challenges as reported by Bloomberg.
Apple Is Set To Postpone Its AR Glass Development
Apple already has plans to release a mixed-reality headset this very year, but the company has now postponed the development of its lightweight augmented reality glasses indefinitely due to technical challenges as reported by Bloomberg on Tuesday.
The AR glasses by apple were expected to make their debut after the release of its mixed reality headset, which is set to combine both elements of augmented reality and virtual reality. But the firm is now planning to follow the release of its mixed-reality headset this year with a lower-cost version of the mixed-reality headset as soon as 2024 or in the early parts of 2025 as reported by Bloomberg and also citing people familiar with the whole development.
Virtual Reality and Its Promise to Enthusiasts
And unlike virtual reality which promises to immerse Google-wearers in new and exciting digital worlds. AR simply as you should know overlays data and images atop the real world. The maker of the iPhone has for many years made its intentions known about its AR intentions.
Tim Cook, CEO of Apple has indicated that the company is preparing for a big future in AR, stating that it is a technology that is potentially as important as the iPhone and then unleashing a couple of AR tools to its developers.
Apple Is Expected To Release a Mixed-Reality Headset In 2023
Apple for years now has been integrating augmented reality into its devices, but the firm, however, is widely expected to release a much rumored and anticipated mixed-reality headset in 2023, although the set targeted release date of the AR/VR headset keeps changing.
Ming-Chi Kuo, an apple analyst expected an announcement event as soon as this very month, while Mark Gurman for Bloomberg on the other hand reported that the firm is aiming to unveil the headset in the spring ahead of the annual worldwide developer’s conference slated for June.
2023 may be the Year of Virtual Reality Headsets
2023 is a year that is likely full of virtual reality headsets that originally were expected in 2022, and this is including the PlayStation VR 2 and Meta Quest 3. Apple already has put down many of its AR clues, thus hinting at what the future of its mixed reality could hold, and has since been active in AR on its own iPhones and iPads for many years now.
