San Francisco: Apple is working on the most advanced chips for its unannounced AR / VR headset, and now a new report says the headset will focus on gaming, media consumption and communication. In the latest edition of the ‘Power On’ newsletter, Mark Gurman said that gaming should be a strong focus of the headset, especially since it will have multiple processors, a fan, extremely high-resolution displays and its own app store. Apple iOS 14.8 & iPadOS 14.8 released with important security update.
In addition, Apple’s first mixed reality headset will be a Mac, iPhone or iPad replacement, according to Gurman. It will have two processors, one with the same processing power as M1, along with a low-end chip to handle inputs from various sensors. The headset can come with at least six to eight optical modules to simultaneously provide continuous video see-through AR services, reports The Verge.
The device should also have two 4K OLED micro displays from Sony. The upcoming Apple headset will be similar to the Oculus Quest, and some prototypes tested include external cameras to enable some AR functionality.
It can have at least 15 camera modules, eye tracking, possibly iris recognition, and cost between $ 2,000 and $ 3,000. The AR headset is expected to have a slim design to make it light and comfortable for the wearer to walk around for long periods of time. The device is also expected to have a high-resolution display that allows users to read small pieces of text while seeing other people in front of them.
