Apple is expected to launch a wearable headset in 2022. It is unclear what Apple’s plans are for the headset, but according to Mark Gurman’s Power On newsletter, the company is expected to focus on gaming for its first mixed reality headset, along with media content as well as communications.

According to Gurman, “Gaming should be a strong focus of the machine, especially given that it will have multiple processors, a fan, extremely high resolution displays and its own App Store. Look for Apple to position the device as a dream for game developers. Next, media consumption.”

He also adds, “I expect Apple to work with media partners to create content that can be watched in VR on the device. Third, communications. Look for Animojis and a VR FaceTime-like experience to be the new-age Zoom.” Some have speculated that Apple is looking to create their own metaverse using this type of technology, similar to Meta who has devices like the Oculus.

In fact, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had previously predicted that Apple could plan to eventually replace the iPhone using these types of devices in the next 10 years, but we suppose we’ll have to wait and see how well this initial launch does before seeing if it has the potential to replace the iPhone in the next decade or so.
