The new virtual / augmented reality headset he is working on Apple won’t embrace the idea of ”metaverso“, contrary to what Meta is doing, at least according to what Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman said in an email sent to subscribers to the” Power On “newsletter.
According to Gurman’s sources, Apple at the moment does not seem absolutely willing to support the metaverse for its VR / AR viewer, of which rumors and rumors have been circulating for months now.
According to Gurman, in clear contrast with the plans of Meta and its platform, the Cupertino house intends to create a device to be used occasionally and mostly for viewing multimedia content, such as movies and TV series, and the gaming, rather than for intensive use and closely related to the possibility of immersing yourself in virtual worlds.
According to the well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s augmented and virtual reality viewer should arrive in stores in late 2022 and will have hardware capable of generating computational power comparable to that of a Mac. According to Kuo, the viewer will mount two displays 4K micro OLED made by Sony and will have two processors, one with characteristics similar to that of the M1 and the other entirely dedicated to the functions of the peripheral sensors.
