Mark Gurman writes in the most recent issue that Apple plans to make its long-awaited AR/VR headset product announcement in the spring, prior to WWDC in June. The release date of the device would coincide with analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s prediction for the fall of 2023.
According to Gurman, a limited group of developers has already received prototype hardware for testing. He claims that Apple still needs to sort out a number of “kinks” in the hardware and software and that the product is far from finished.
The device was initially scheduled to be presented in January, according to prior reporting, according to Gurman, but that deadline slipped. Following its introduction to the globe in the spring, Apple would probably provide developers with comprehensive information and tooling during the WWDC conference in June.
According to Gurman, Apple has “roped in resources” from other departments to address all the unresolved bugs and to-dos. This implies that some internal firm tasks have been delayed as a result.
For the AirPods and Apple Watch lines, Gurman does not foresee any significant modifications. The MacBook Pro M2 spec bumps, an Apple Silicon Mac Pro, and a potential 15-inch MacBook Air size are all on the Mac roadmap. This year, a new huge HomePod that looks most similar to the 2018 model should be released.
