Apple Mixed Reality Headset gets M2 chipset, 16GB RAM

Rumors of a mixed reality headset being developed by Apple have been circulating for months, and according to TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the first version is due out as early as January next year.

This was reported by a well-known journalist Bloomberg Markus Gurman. Earlier, Ming-Chi Kuo reported that the Apple headset will get a single processor with performance equal to the M1 model and a co-processor with less functionality for processing data from the device’s sensors. Although Gurman did not mention the possibility of using a second chip in his report, the publication The information already reported about the probability of such a configuration.

If Apple originally planned to use the M1 as its main chipset, it would now make perfect sense to switch to a more powerful option. Announced during the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), the M2 is said to have an 18% faster CPU and 35% faster GPU than the previous M1.

There are also rumors that the device will be independent of other gadgets like the iPhone – which is why it is said to get 16GB of RAM. This indirectly indicates that the new product will be significantly more productive than the Meta VR headset.* Quest 2 with 6GB RAM based on the Snapdragon XR2 platform.

According to some reports, Apple’s board of directors had the opportunity to get acquainted with the prototype headset back in May. A new version of the operating system for Apple, which was specially developed for augmented and virtual reality devices, realityOS, was mentioned again and again.

Last week, when asked about mixed reality solutions, Apple CEO Tim Cook advised reporters from China Daily: “Stay with us and see what we have to offer”.
