It’s unlikely that the Apple Reality AR/VR headset will launch in January. It might make its debut at a Spring event or the WWDC 2023, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
According to reports, the iPhone manufacturer will release its rumoured mixed reality headset this year. The shipments of upcoming AR/VR devices, however, seem to have been delayed until a much later time.

According to the most recent report from Mac Rumors, renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently tweeted about the potential release date of the Apple reality headset. He also revealed that the rumoured AR/VR offering’s mass shipments were experiencing delays.
It appears to be on track to receive the glisten of the spotlight this year, though.
In its report, Mac Rumors mentions Kuo’s prior prediction that Apple would introduce its mixed-reality headset in January. But this time, the analyst claims that there is a persistent delay with the device.
As a result, the well-known tech company is likely to unveil it at a much later event, most likely a media event this spring or the eagerly anticipated WWDC in June 2023.
Because of this, according to the analyst, “it is increasingly unlikely that Apple will hold a media event for the new device in January.”
What causes the delay?
The upcoming mixed reality device has been postponed, according to Kuo, who revealed this in a tweet about it.
The availability of software development tools and problems with mechanical component drop testing, he says, are the reasons it “is behind schedule.”
Kuo now thinks that the mass shipment of the upcoming device may be postponed from the second quarter of 2023 to the late second or the third quarter of the year due to the ongoing delay.
Here’s What We Know About the Apple Reality Headset So Far
A recent leak gave us a preview of the upcoming device before Kuo revealed the reasons for the Apple mixed reality headset’s delays.
An extensive leak of the Apple AR/VR headset, according to a recent article by Digital Trends, revealed more information about the rumoured device.
The device reportedly has a 120 degree field of view, which is greater than current options. The audio in the reality headset might rely on AirPods Pro.
Additionally, it is anticipated to be extremely light, made of materials like carbon fibre, glass, and aluminium.
