We regret to inform you that the transformation of your daily life into The Matrix has been delayed by several months, at least. The next big widely anticipated AR/VR release – a headset launch from Apple – appears to have run “head first” into a reality check.
The company’s planned mixed-reality headset product has been delayed by “at least a few months,” according to a new Bloomberg report. The device had been planned for an unveiling at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference in June.
But Apple is now battling “development challenges related to overheating, cameras and software” that may have pushed the timeline for the product’s release back from its late year 2022 expected date.
The headset, which hasn’t been discussed publicly by the company, has been “years in the making”, the report says, indicating it has been in development since as early as 2015.
