Apple's AR headset will slip to Q2 2023, predicts Kuo
Following his now validated doubt that Apple would unveil its AR headset at WWDC 2022, Ming-Chi Kuo has tweeted what he expects is the timetable leading up to its delayed launch.
I believe Apple's AR/MR headset shipping date will postpone to 2Q23 (vs. 1Q23 of market consensus) because Shanghai lockdown interrupts the development. As expected, there were no clues for AR/MR headset at WWDC 2022. Here is my prediction for Apple AR/MR headset schedule.-- (Ming-Chi Kuo) (@mingchikuo)
He goes on to say that his supposed schedule Apple's first AR headset is:
- Engineering Validation and Testing starting from Q3 2022
- Apple event in January 2023
- SDK toolkit for developers by end of February 2023
- Pre-orders beginning Q2 2023
- On sale ahead of WWDC 2023
Since beginning to tweet about Apple in March 2022, Ming-Chi Kuo's news about the company have variously been speculation, or based on supply chain reports. This AR timeline appears to be solely supposition, using Kuo's experience of manufacturing timelines.
