Despite earlier rumours hinting that Apple could reveal its long-awaited augmented reality/virtual reality AR/VR headset at WWDC, that likely is no longer the case.

In a pair of recent tweets, often-reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated that while Apple’s mixed reality (MR) headset will launch in 2023, the tech giant doesn’t want to reveal the headset too early because it would allow its competitors to “immediately kick off copycat projects.”

Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, another often-accurate source of Apple leaks and rumours, also recently stated that Apple likely wouldn’t reveal its AR/VR headset during its 2022 WWDC keynote.

With all of this in mind, Apple recently trademarked ‘realityOS,‘ the rumoured name of its headset’s operating system.

Apple’s AR/VR headset is rumoured to feature dual 4K displays, several 3D sensors and a price tag in the range of $3,000 USD price tag (roughly $3,736 CAD). Some rumours also point to the headset being powered by the tech giant’s M1 chip.
