Apple’s augmented reality headset will enter mass production in the second quarter of next year, with a launch expected between the third and fourth quarter of 2022, according to a translated report from the Taiwanese version of DigiTimes.
According to today’s report, Apple’s AR headset has completed its second phase of prototype testing, inching closer to being ready for primetime mass production.
The first iteration of Apple’s AR headset may be a bit bulky in design, similar to the Oculus Rift headset, but a sleeker pair of “Apple Glasses” could launch a few years later.
In recent years, Apple has been building up its AR platform, rolling out several AR-centric features on iOS and iPadOS, possibly paving the way for the “Apple Glasses.”
Apple’s AR headset isn’t expected to be cheap in price and could cost between $2,000 and $3,000.
