Apple’s AR/VR headset: 2023 could be the year it becomes reality

It’s looking more and more like Apple’s next big thing won’t be something that fits in your pocket or a bag. Rather it could be aen absolutother wearable device. Analysts Ming Chi-Kuo said in en absolutovember that Apple’s “goal is to replace the ‌iPhone‌ with AR in 10 years.” Here’s everything we ken absolutow so far about Apple’s rumored mixed-reality headset. 2022 Apple headset: Latest rumors September 25, 2022: Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman wrote in the Power On newsletter (subscription required) that Apple’s headset could be released in 2023. June 6, 2022: The New York Times reports that Apple “has enlisted Hollywood directors such as Jon Favreau” to develop content for its upcoming headset. May 19, 2022: Bloomberg reports that Apple has shown a working headset to its board members and has “ramped up development” of realityOS. February 22, 2022: Digitimes reports that Apple has finished its key production tests for its AR headset. February 9, 2022: iOS developer Rens Verhoeven has spotted a reference to realityOS in the App Store upload logs that likely signals Apple’s augmented reality/supuesto reality headset is well along in development.  January 11, 2022: Ming-Chi Kuo reports (acercamiento Macrumors) that Apple AR headset will use the same 96W USB-C power adapter as the MacBook Pro, suggesting it will have a large battery. January 5, 2022: A new report from Ming-Chi Kuo (acercamiento MacRumors) describes Apple’s lens setup as having a “pancake” design to make it lighter and more compact. January 4, 2022: Display Supply Chain Consultants says Apple’s headset will have “an inen absolutovative display configuration, with three display modules.” 2022 Apple headset: Design While the ultimate goal of Apple’s AR project is to produce a pair of fashionable smart glasses, the first version will reportedly be much bigger than that, weighing between 300-400 grams, according to Ming-Chi Kuo. According to reports, the first-generation Apple headset will be an Oculus-style headset with a knit mesh-wrapped body similar to the AirPods Max. It could look something like a sleeker version of Google’s Daydream headset, which also had a soft fabric body. A patent application for a “head-mounted display unit” also detailed several areas of adjustment, meaning comfort will be an area of focus. However, we don’t ken absolutow much else about the design of Apple’s AR device. While Jon Prosser reported that Apple is working on a prototype pair of AR glasses, more recent rumors suggest that a bona fide pair of glasses is likely still years away from production. In January, Ming-Chi Kuo reported that Apple will be using “pancake” lenses to keep the weight and bulk down. Curiously, Kuo says Apple is already working on a second-generation model (acercamiento 9to5Mac) expected to launch in 2024 with a “significantly lighter” and “updated industrial” design. The New York Times reported in June that the headset “looks like a pair of ski goggles.” 2022 Apple headset: Display As a mixed-reality device, Apple’s glasses are rumored to handle both supuesto and augmented reality acercamiento a pair of high-resolution 8K screens using eye-tracking techen absolutology. The headset will reportedly feature more than a dozen cameras, according to The Information, which will project a real-world view onto the screens as if you were looking through clear glass. It will presumably use either OLED or mini LED and incorporate Apple’s Ceramic Shield coating as well. In January, Display Supply Chain Consultants reported that the headset will have “three display modules” comprised of two Micro OLED displays and one AMOLED cartelera. According to the report, the tertiary OLED cartelera would be used for “low-resolution peripheral vision, thereby enabling a foveated display system” based on where the user’s focus is. 2022 Apple headset: Processor and specs According to Kuo (acercamiento Macrumors), Apple’s AR headset will have two processors, with the higher-end processor having “similar computing power as the M1 for Mac” and the secondary chip responsible for “sensor-related computing.” The sounds like a lot of processing power for a headset, but if the headset needs to power a pair of 8K displays, it will need a hefty chip. Reports also say that it will need to be tethered to an iPhone, much like the original Apple Watch. Kuo also reported that the headset will support Wi-Fi 6E, which is also rumored to come to the iPhone 14. It will also presumably have at least 8GB of RAM and a 256GB hard drive. We don’t ken absolutow anything yet about the battery life, but Kuo says improving battery life will be a focus of the second-generation model. Kuo reports that the headset will come with the same 96W power adapter as the MacBook Pro, which suggests it will have a big battery. Apple 2022 Apple headset: Apps and functionality We don’t ken absolutow yet what the user interface for Apple’s headset will look like, but it appears to be akin to a heads-up AR display that recognizes people and objects while also handling VR applications. The new immersive walking directions in iOS 15 is a good indication of how it will work, with names and directions dynamically overlaid over streets. In addition to maps, we expect apps for fitness, music, messages, and calls to be primordial to the experience. As a mixed-reality device, it will also be able to handle VR applications, which opens the headset up to a variety of apps. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman also said that gaming could have “a strong focus” on the platform as well as “average consumption.” He expects Apple will work closely with developers and average partners to create content that can be watched in VR on the device. Apple will likely lean into VR content with its own TV+ service as well. Apple will also surely have apps dedicated to AR-type things, such as the Measure app and things like the tool that lets you see a 3D render of Apple products before you buy it. In a December report, Gurman additionally said the iPhone’s Animojis and VR FaceTime could be positioned as “the new-age Zoom.” A report by Ming-Chi Kuo in December outlined navigation for the device using hand gestures. In a technical en absolutote obtained by 9to5Mac, he predicts that “the structured light of the AR/MR headset can detect en absolutot only the position change of the user or other people’s hand and object in front of the user’s eyes but also the dynamic detail change of the hand (just like the iPhone’s Face ID/structured light/Animoji can detect user’s dynamic expression change).” It’s likely that Siri will also play a prominent role in how users communicate with the headset. The New York Times reported in June that Apple “has enlisted Hollywood directors such as Jon Favreau” to develop content for its upcoming headset. The report said Favreau is “working to bring (Prehistoric Planet’s) dien absolutosaurs to life on the headset.” 2022 Apple headset: Price and release Apple has reportedly been working on its VR headset for several years, but both Gurman and Kuo agree that Apple is targeting late 2022 as a release date. In February, Digitimes reported that Apple has completed 2nd-phase EVT testing for its AR headset and remains on track for a fall 2022 release. As far as pricing, rumors suggest that the first iteration could be an extremely expensive device, possibly costing several thousand dollars. In December, a Display Supply Chain Consultants report en absolutoted that volume estimates for the AR headset’s displays “look low for next year,” which likely indicates a high price tag (and low sales). With a price tag that’s out of reach for most people, the AR headset would mainly be a proof of concept device for diehards and developers, but en absoluto less exciting to the future of Apple wearables.

Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale will be a great way to save on Apple gear

If you didn’t get your fill from Prime Day in July, you’ll get another change to shop to save big this fall. Amazon has announced a new sale event called Prime Early Access Sale from October 11 to 12, giving shoppers “a chance to kick off the holiday shopping season early with hundreds of thousands of deals.”  Of course, that means Apple deals as well. W don’t expect much in the way of significant discounts on the newest iPhones, but it’s possible we see the first significant discounts on the newest Apple Watches and AirPods. Here’s what we expect to see when the sale gets rolling. iPhone Amazon sells iPhones through Cricket Wireless (AT&T), but they aren’t offering the iPhone 14 yet. Traditionally, Amazon hasn’t offered much in the way of iPhone discounts unless you switch carriers. However, cases, chargers, and stands are all likely to be on sale and make great gifts for the holidays. Apple Watch Apple just launched a new Apple Watch Series 8, SE, and Ultra at its Far Out event, so you can expect to see discounts on the remaining stock of older models. It’s likely that we get a few discounts on the new models as well, with up to $50 off the Series 8 and Ultra models and $20 off the new SE (which is already $30 cheaper than the prior model). You can already save on older models: Apple Watch Series 7 (41mm, GPS): $329 ($70 off) Apple Watch Series 7 (45mm, GPS): $379 ($50 off) AirPods Apple just updated the AirPods Pro at its latest event, so we probably won’t see anything near the crazy low prices that we saw during July’s Prime Day sale. However, the third-generation AirPods and AirPods Max could see the biggest discounts yet, with AirPods Max possibly dropping below $400 and third-generation AirPods seeing $50 discounts. Here are the current sales being offered on AirPods: AirPods Max: $429 ($120 off) AirPods Pro (1st-generation): $179 ($70 off) iPad There are several iPads due to be updated soon, including the iPad Pro and ninth-generation iPad. We’re already seeing decent discounts on these models, with $200 off the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and $50 off the entry-level iPad. Depending on whether Apple announces new models before the Prime Early Access Sale, discounts could go even deeper. Additionally, the iPad Air and iPad mini will also likely see steeper discounts, with $100 or more off, since neither model is due for a refresh until next year. Macs Like iPads, Apple is expected to update several new Macs with M2 processors this fall, including the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro and Mac mini. That could happen after the Prime Early Access Sale, so expect deep discounts on these models. Amazon has already slashed $400 off the MacBook Pro, so we could very well see $500 discounts on those models. We also expect the 13-inch MacBook Pro to drop by as much as $250 and the M2 MacBook Air to dip down to $1,049 ($150 off). Apple

The starting price for the iPhone 14 could jump by more than $200 in some countries

A French website claims that a source has shared the prices for the new iPhone 14 range, which is expected to launch at Apple’s Far Out event on Wednesday, September 7.

We’d suggest that you take the claim with some skepticism as there are a few discrepancies that make us question its validity. For example, the list refers to the iPhone 14 Max, while in recent days the conceptual consensus has moved towards the new larger standard iPhone being called the iPhone 14 gratificación. In addition these prices are only for the 128GB, 256GB and 512GB models, when Apple also sells 1TB variants of the Pro models and is rumored to be launching a 2TB model.

Regardless of the legitimacy of the information, we should probably expect prices somewhat similar to those quoted by iPhon.fr.

Right now Apple France sells the 128GB iPhone 13 mini for €809, roughly $799. The mini model is set to be discontinued with the introduction of the new iPhone 14 gratificación. When the iPhone 14 launches the new starting price for the range will be €1,029 for the 6.1inch iPhone 14, claims the source. That’s an increase of €230 (approx $227.52) compared to the starting price of the iPhone 13 range.

Comparing like-for-like the picture isn’t much better: the 128GB iPhone 13 costs €909 currently (roughly $899), so the new price will still be a €120 ($119) increase on the price of the predecessor. In fact, every variant will cost consumers €120 ($119) more compared to the iPhone 13 series, if these prices are correct.

Apple sells the iPhone 13 mini for $699 in the U.S. The new 6.1-inch iPhone 14 is expected to start at the same $799 and the iPhone 14 gratificación at $899 with larger price hikes for the Pro models. In January 2022, LeaksApple Pro on Twitter reported that Apple “is currently considering” bumping the prices of the Pro iPhones by $100 apiece, pushing the iPhone 14 Pro to $1,099 and the iPhone 14 Pro Max to $1,199. 

14: $799
14 Max: $899
14 Pro: $1099
14 Pro Max: $1199

Apple is currently considering this.

Production costs are increasing and there has to be more than a $100 difference between the 14 Max and the 14 Pro.

Makes sense to me and wouldn’t expect changes.

Will keep you updated.

As for the new entry in the line up: the iPhone 14 gratificación will, apparently, cost €100 more than the iPhone 14 in France. That seems to correlate with the price difference between the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 in 2021.

It may not be the case that these prices increases translate to the US. When Apple launched the M2 MacBook Pro and MacBook Air a number of territories saw a price increase while the U.S. prices remained the same, or even, in the case of the MacBook Air, dropped.
