Apple delays the presentation of its mixed reality headset until June

The technology company plans to delay the launch of its mixed reality viewer until June to coincide with the World Developers Conference (WWDC)

Apple plans to delay the presentation of its mixed reality headset until the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which usually takes place in June, according to Bloomberg.

At this event, the company often highlights the latest innovations in iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS, connecting developers with Apple engineers and technologies to continue creating new apps and interactive experiences.

Apple’s first headset, which combines virtual reality and augmented reality technologies, was scheduled to be released in January 2023. In late December, analyst Ming Chi-Kuo said it would be delayed due to “software-related difficulties.”

Already in early January, Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman pointed out that this device, whose initial name is Reality Pro and is known internally as N301, would arrive in the fall of this year because the company still “has many problems to solve with the device, involving ‘hardware’, ‘software’ and services”.

Now, Gurman has indicated that the company will postpone the presentation of the helmet from April to June, according to people related to the company. At this developer event, Apple will tell all the details of the viewer.

The journalist recalled that these headphones will have a new operating system called internally xrOS, which “presents a 3D-like appearance of a complete iPhone interface, with applications such as Messages, Mail, Safari and TV.

In recent months, Apple has been working to fix issues with the sensors in the device, in order to enable an efficient hand and eye control mechanism. Likewise, the company has focused on striking a balance between battery life and performance.

Bloomberg also pointed out a month ago that Apple is developing a cheaper version of the viewer, which will be presented in 2024 or early 2025 and that it will be equipped with components from its ‘smartphones’, instead of those included in the high-end, assembled with Mac components.
