Bloomberg is reporting that Apple’s next major product – a mixed-reality headset – is set to arrive next year. The headset itself is likely to be priced between $2,000 and $3,000, packing a Mac-level M2 chip, more than 10 cameras placed inside and outside of the device, and the highest-resolution displays ever featured in a mass-market headset. It will also run a new operating system called “realityOS,” which is said to include MR versions of core Apple apps like Messages, FaceTime, and Maps. Job listings from Apple imply that the company is planning to create 3D mixed-reality worlds.
Rumors about upcoming Apple products are just that: rumors. Lately, though, Apple has not been as good as it used to be about keeping secrets. I’m excited about Apple’s vision for a mixed-reality future. Based on the available information, the upcoming Apple hardware and software will give us an exciting new way to surface data and make it actionable.
