Apple Strays Away From Metaverse Hype With AR/VR Headset

Share post:

Mark Gurman, an Apple analyst and tech reporter for Bloomberg, has revealed Apple’s plans for the metaverse. According to Gurman, Apple intends to stay out of the buzz around the ‘Metaverse’ as it provides insights into the company’s upcoming AR headset.

Apple is expected to unveil a mixed AR/VR headset designed for “bursts of gaming, communication, and content consumption” rather than building a device that bridges the gap between the physical and digital worlds.

In his Power On newsletter, Gurman noted, “Here’s one word I’d be shocked to hear on stage when Apple announces its headset: metaverse. I’ve been told pretty directly that the idea of a completely virtual world where users can escape to — like they can in Meta Platforms/Facebook’s vision of the future — is off-limits from Apple.”

According to a report by The Information, Apple’s AR/VR headset will include two 8k displays, more than a dozen cameras for hand tracking and cost $3,000.

According to trusted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the device could run on multiple processors, including one with the power of Apple’s M1 chip.
