Five more days are remaining for the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference to go live. It is anticipated that we will get to know not only about new add-ons of iOS17 but also about Apple’s launch of its new product lines. The new product line includes the much-awaited Apple mixed reality headset, also known as Apple AR/VR headset and Apple reality pro. These headsets are impactful in creating augmented and virtual reality environments for the company. The display specifications of the headsets were leaked just before their launch.
Ross Young the display analyst has revealed two displays that are supposed to be placed inside the headset. These headsets are made to feature micro OLED screen technology. Ross has claimed that the length of the two displays is designed to be diagonally 1.41 inches and will have 4000 PPI (Pixels per inch ). It will have a high brightness of more than 5000 nits. If these things are to be believed these features will be more than in any of the VR sets currently available in the market. The existing model of PSVR2 comes with 2000 PPI whereas, Meta Quest Pro offers 1800*1920 PPI.
More details: Apple Mixed Reality Headset.
The first headset of these features can cost up to $3000 for its users which is much higher than the existing PSV 2 which is starting from $500 and Meta Quest Pro the starting of which is $999.
The target customers of these headsets are not the gamers considering the price points but the developers who will use these headsets to build apps and tools related to AR and VR and add more to Apple’s new ecosystem. To justify its price points Apple has claimed that eventually it will add high-end AR/VR features.
There is no official confirmation to the news yet so we need to wait for the WWDC 2023 to know about the actual details of the headsets.
