We’ve been hearing rumors Apple is working on some sort of augmented reality headset for ages, but today a report from The Information provides the strongest evidence yet that Apple is getting ready to enter the AR fray.
Specifically, Apple is aiming to release its AR headset in 2022, and a pair of smart glasses will follow in 2023.
The Information says its report was sourced from an October presentation among Apple employees.
Though some earlier reports had pegged the headset’s release date for 2020, it appears Apple is biding its time to get the technology right rather than rushing into the nascent market.
The report claims Apple plans to begin reaching out to developers in 2021.
The headset is allegedly codenamed N301 and looks like a sleeker version of Facebook‘s Oculus Quest, except it appears to be able to switch between AR and VR modes.
