Apple is likely to introduce its first AR/VR headset at the highly anticipated WWDC23 developer conference on June 5 at 10 am PT. Apple’s breakthrough headset’s features, design, performance, and release timetable have been reported by trustworthy sources including Mark Gurman and Morgan Stanley.
Mark Gurman’s article suggests three names for Apple’s AR/VR headset: Reality Pro, Reality One, and XR Pro. Due to confusion with the iPhone XR, Gurman advises eliminating XR Pro. Apple will likely chose Reality Pro or Reality One.
Ultra-premium glass, carbon fiber, fiber, and aluminum comprise the headset. The gadget has a curved front with an external screen and a novel magnetic charger, like ski goggles. The headgear does not support normal glasses but offers a clip-on device for vision correction.

Apple’s AR/VR headset’s M2 processor delivers great AR and VR performance. Its 16GB RAM improves processing. According to reports, the gadget will need a larger MagSafe Battery Pack to last longer.
Eye motions, gestures, and Siri control the headgear. With temple-mounted speakers, the audio experience is immersive. AirPods and the headset improve audio quality.
According to MacRumors, Morgan Stanley analyst Erik Woodring expects Apple to introduce their AR/VR headset at WWDC23. The headset is expected to launch before the December holidays in October 2023 once mass manufacturing begins.
Apple plans to launch this year with 300,000 to 500,000 devices, according to Woodring’s supply chain sources. Apple’s first headset, with an anticipated starting price of $3,000, is projected to function at a “close to break-even” position initially, resulting in small earnings.
Apple’s upcoming AR/VR headset debut at the WWDC23 developer conference is creating buzz. With reports from Mark Gurman and Morgan Stanley detailing the headset’s design, performance, and release timeline, Apple’s “Reality Pro” or “Reality One” AR/VR headset is expected to revolutionize immersive computing.
