According to Kuo, the device will receive two processors: the main one, which will be comparable in processing power to the M1 chip used in Apple Mac computers, and an auxiliary, less powerful one, designed to control the device’s touch functions.

Kuo claims that the AR headset will initially work independently, without the need to be tethered to a Mac or iPhone. The analyst believes that Apple will provide headset support for “a wide variety of applications” with the aim of replacing similar devices with iPhones within ten years.

The novelty, as expected by Min-Chi Kuo, in addition to augmented reality will also support virtual reality (VR) thanks to a pair of 4K Micro OLED displays from Sony, which will require the processing power of a chip like the M1.

Earlier, the analyst said that the start of serial production of the AR headset had to be postponed to the fourth quarter of next year due to the complexity of its design. And last week, he clarified that both the upcoming headset and the iPhone 14, which will be released next year, will support Wi-Fi 6E technology, which provides increased bandwidth and better noise immunity necessary for working in augmented and virtual reality.
