Apple is expected to host WWDC later in the middle of the year. Whether or not the company will continue to host virtual pre-recorded conferences or go back to in-person events remains to be seen, but it should still prove to be rather exciting if recent predictions are to be believed.
According to analyst Gene Munster, he has shared his belief that Apple could actually debut their rumored mixed reality headset as soon as WWDC 2022 this year. It has long been rumored that the company has been working on a pair of smart glasses, so this mixed reality headset is said to be one of several headsets that the company is working on.
Munster adds that while Apple will show off what they’re working on, it is expected that it will only be available for purchase in 2023. This seems to echo earlier reports from other reputable sources, like Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who said last year that Apple could debut their headset in 2022.
The upcoming headset is also said to be rather pricey, but based on earlier reports, it is apparently being aimed more towards developers rather than the average consumer. Presumably Apple wants to start building up an ecosystem before they launch the consumer version. Also, some reports have even suggested that Apple could eventually replace the iPhone with such a device in the distant future.
