Apple played quietly – and sometimes not so quietly – a great deal in the field of augmented reality (AR). Previously, the use of AR was limited to software with the iPhone and the iPad is the vehicle for technology. However, rumors of an Apple AR device have been circulating for a long time. The well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has shed some light on the rumored Apple AR headset.
According to a report by 9to5Mac, Kuo stated in an investor note that the Apple AR headset could have up to 15 cameras. The obvious question is why 15 cameras? The idea is to collect as much data as possible from outside the world and track the user’s eye movements with the utmost precision. “This way they can increase the apparent fidelity by targeting only what the user is looking at and not the entire human field of vision,” the 9to5Mac report said.
Kuo had previously said that the Apple AR headset would be priced around $ 1,000. According to Kuo, the current headset prototypes weigh around 200 to 300 grams, and Apple is aiming to reduce it to 100 to 200 grams.
The Apple AR headset is to be used SonyMicro OLED displays. “While Apple has focused on AR, we believe the hardware specifications of this product can provide a complete experience that is vastly better than existing VR products. We believe that Apple can integrate this helmet to a great extent with video applications (e.g. Apple TV +, Apple Arcadeetc.) as one of the main selling points, ”Kuo stated in an earlier investor note published in March 2021.
