While Rumblings Apple Paul’s planned venture is gaining momentum in growth, reality and mixed reality Recently, We now have a series date for these devices by source prognosticator Ming Chi-Kuo, who has a reliable track record on all matters of the moment.

In a research note with TF International SecUrine Received by MCummers, Kuo said the Apple Pal will introduce an MR Production of helmet type by 2022, production of an AR glasses type by 2025 And An ar CProduction of Ontact lens type by 2030-2040. Apple Pal Prognosticator There was not much to say About the Apple Contact Lens, Apple says that the lens will bring electronics from the age of “visible computing”, “invisible computing”. He added, “No. Visibility for the product so far ”.

“We estimate that Apple’s MR / AR product roadmap includes three phases: the helmet type by 2022, the spectacle type by 2025, and the contact lens type by 2030-2040,” Kuo wrote. “We assume that the helmet product will provide AR and VR experiences, while glasses and contact lens type products are likely to focus on AR application.”

When it comes to Apple’s MR. The headset, however, had a lot to say to Kuo. In terms of size, the analyst states that some prototypes of Apple’s mixed reality headset weigh between 0.4-0.6 pounds (200 to 300 grams). However, Apple’s clear goal is to reduce the weight to 0.2-0.4 pounds (100-200 grams), which will make the company’s headset lighter than many existing devices.

The Kuo report states that it will also be portable, and will have independent computing power and storage. However, this does not mean that it will be truly “mobile,” at least like the first iPhone. Kuo said he expects the new helmet to improve its mobility as technology improves.

The analyst also added weight to the rumor that Apple’s headset will be equipped with a state-of-the-art micro OLED display. The company is working with Sony on this, he said, which is contradictory Previous reports He said the Apple Pal was working Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. With a micro OLED display and some optical modules, the headset will be able to provide a “view-through AR experience”, as well as a VR experience.

Now here’s the thing, why should you buy Apple’s MR When the headset Is there A looT. Less expensive options to choose from?

“Although Apple is focusing on the PAL AR, we think the hardware specifications of this product can provide an immersive experience that is significantly better than existing VR products. We believe that Apple could integrate this helmet as a major selling point with video related applications (e.g., TV Pull TV +, Apple Pull Arcade, etc.), ”Kuo wrote.

He said Apple’s mixed reality headset is expected to cost around $ 1,000 in the US.

As far as Apple’s PL’s AR glasses go, which is expected to provide an “optical view-through AR experience”, the PL prognosticator is expected to launch as early as 2025. We’ll see if that pen comes out, as Kuo said he doesn’t think there’s a prototype for this product yet.

Overall, there are some compelling predictions from those wells. Let’s remember now, though it’s noticeable Source, not everything she predicts comes true. If that’s true, though, these Apple Pull devices could change the game for AR and VR if good.
