Twitter user shows preview of Apple’s Mixed-Reality headset parts

Share post:

A Twitter user with a shielded account who has a proven track record of posting reliable information about Apple components has revealed the first actual sneak preview of the Apple Mixed-Reality Headset components.

The images show various device components, including shaped ribbon cables that contour around a user’s eyes and may be used to connect display components to a board. Another appears to show an array of three sensors or cameras along a similar length flexible ribbon.

While the images are not explicitly linked to Apple’s headset, the shape of the ribbon cables reinforces indications that they are indeed designed for the upcoming device.

Apple has increased its focus on augmented reality and virtual reality technologies in recent years, with CEO Tim Cook hinting at the development of a headset as early as 2017. While details about the headset have been scarce, the leaked images provide a sneak peek at what could be Apple’s next big release.

The first-generation mixed-reality headset is expected to be unveiled at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June, followed by a release later that year.
