Kuo says Apple headsets are capable of switching between AR and VR seamlessly


Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that Apple’s mixed-reality headset could allow an easy switch between virtual reality and augmented reality modes, which could be one of the headset’s primary selling factors.

The long-rumored Apple AR and VR headgear has been referred to numerous times as a mixed-reality device. This describes a device that would be equally at home supplying the user with VR and AR material. This dual capability may prove to be an important factor in Apple’s successful assault on the market.

According to TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s tweet on Sunday, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are both well-known concepts. Nevertheless, for the vast majority of people, the seamless transition between AR and VR is hard to envisage, “Kuo says. “

The analyst goes on to say that a seamless transition between AR and VR might be “one of the primary selling aspects of Apple’s headgear.”

“It is not just the hardware that can support both AR and VR, but the ability to integrate AR and VR and switch them fluidly for different circumstances that constitutes a complete mixed reality headset,” Kuo wrote in a second tweet. Because of this, Kuo refers to the headgear as “AR/MR.”

Kuo ends by predicting that the headgear will be available in Q2 2023. On June 7, Kuo tweeted about a probable launch date for the headgear, saying an Apple event in January may be staged for the item.

According to reports, the headset’s development has been rocky, but it has reportedly reached a “advanced” stage of development, including a presentation to Apple’s board of directors.
