The future of augmented reality (AR) at Apple is being teased by CEO Tim Cook. Cook reiterated that Apple has been working on AR-related goods for the past few years during a recent interview with China Daily. This time, Cook made a very obvious implication about the impending release of the final AR product(s).
According to rumors, Apple will introduce the first augmented reality (AR)-mixed reality (MR) headgear in January 2023. The launch is scheduled because the metaverse has gained a lot of attention in recent months.
Cook has already previously made comments about the impending AR devices, so this is nothing new. However, this was unquestionably the first time Cook exuded confidence over these AR devices. Apple has long been developing augmented reality products, but they haven’t been released in the last few years.
Cook now exudes confidence in the company’s next AR goods. The Apple CEO expressed his excitement for the possibilities in the market as it “could not be more intense.” You can sort of check back later to see what we have to offer.

Cook hasn’t yet provided particular information regarding Apple’s AR products, but according to a note by Jeff Pu of Haitong International Tech Research, which was obtained by 9to5Mac, the company’s reported AR Glasses are already in the design development stage. The AR Glasses may be unveiled in the second half of 2024, the expert added.
Apple is now working on its future iPhones, known as the iPhone 14 series, in addition to these augmented reality goods. The Cupertino-based tech company is expected to introduce four models as part of the series, including the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
According to rumors, Apple may discontinue the iPhone small model this year since its sales negatively impacted those of the iPhone SE series. According to speculations, the tech giant will instead introduce the iPhone 14 Max. None of these specifics have been confirmed by Apple.
Is Apple working on a VR headset?
Apple is already working on the second-generation AR/VR headset even though the first generation has not yet been released, according to Apple expert Ming-Chi Kuo. A new battery system, a speedier processor, and an improved design are all anticipated for the AR/VR headset that will be available in 2024.
Does Apple use AR?
With hundreds of millions of AR-capable devices and dozens of AR apps available on the App Store, Apple has the largest AR platform in the world. There is no better way to enjoy augmented reality (AR) because Apple devices and software are built specifically for it.
How much will the Apple VR cost?
Despite this, speculations suggest the project could begin in 2022 or 2023. Cost of the Apple AR/VR headset: Pricing has not yet been made official, but speculations say it will be in the $3,000 to $2,200 to AU$ 4,400 range.
