Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed that Apple is already working on the second generation of its AR headset, which will differ from the original model in lighter weight, faster processor and improved battery. The release of the gadget may take place in 2024.
Apple is expected to show its first augmented reality headset before the end of next year. Previously, Kuo announced that the new product will be equipped with two processors at once, one of which will be comparable in performance to the Apple M1. This chip will take care of all the basic calculations, and also provide the headset with a certain autonomy – in other words, the gadget will be able to work without a permanent connection to the iPhone.
In addition to data on second-generation Apple Glasses, Ming-Chi Kuo also said that Apple’s first augmented reality helmet will weigh about 300-400 grams and will be able to “smoothly switch between AR and VR.” The last feature will be one of the chips of the new Apple gadget.
Some are sure that Apple’s first augmented reality helmet will not be very popular. The reason is the high price. Earlier it was reported that the helmet will cost about $3,000.
