As per the information published by Apple’s reliable analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, mass shipments of Apple’s rumored future Virtual reality and augmented reality could be delayed until the second half of 2023 owing to unexplained software-related issues.
If sources are to be believed, in a series of tweets, Kuo expressed his belief that the much-talked-about Virtual reality and augmented reality will start shipping sometime during the first half of this year, although not at the same rate as was previously anticipated.
As per sources, these two headsets will be running on xrOS platform rather than realityOS. These modifications and updates have been internally gathered by the media in recent weeks.
Bugs and Changes within xrOS have caused Apple to delay mass shipments, according to Kuo. Till now, Ming-Chi Kuo has not given a specific reason, but as per the recent survey of Apple’s manufacturing partners, this assumption is being made.
The headset might cost $2000, and it was previously stated by KUO that Apple planned to launch 1.5 Million of them in 2023. As per reports, Apple had already shown off their headsets to investors and was planning to introduce them in the event that will be held on January 2023.
As per the talks going on, the first headset is expected to be expensive. The company’s initial Virtual reality headsets might cost more than the $1500 Meta Quest Pro, which is the current market leader in the virtual reality space.
As per the rumors going around, this is Apple’s all-new product, and the firm believes that the very first version of this segment will be the best one.
