It is widely known that Apple is working on AR/MR And other headsets, but the finished product has been elusive.
According to Mark Gurman’s latest update, Apple’s first headset is expected to be released in June and will be unveiled at WWDC.
According to the data, Apple has applied for patents related to multiple head-mounted display devices and hybrid headsets.
Among them, “System and Method for Interactive 3D preview” patent enables 3D data synchronization between a head-mounted display and an electronic device.
The patent for “Head-mounted displays for virtual and mixed reality with in-out position tracking, user body tracking, and environment tracking” enables real-time tracking using computer vision methods and data fusion from multiple sensors, achieving high frame rates and low latency by performing a portion of the processing on the HMD itself.
Apple has also filed AR/VR related patents, including a tangible visualization of virtual objects in virtual environments, a predictive foveal virtual reality system, and a display system with world sensors and user sensors.
According to previous news, the AR/MR Headset will be Apple’s most complicated product design ever, with an ultra-high resolution 8K display and advanced eye-tracking technology, equipped with up to 15 cameras to accurately identify and track the eyes.
Cook has such high hopes for it that he has talked about replacing the iPhone in the next decade.
Thanks to all the work Apple has put into the device, the price tag is “impressive,” with analysts expecting Apple’s AR/MR Headset to sell for $2,000 to $2,500 or more (13,500 to 17,000 yuan).
