Apple is working on the most advanced chips for its unannounced AR/VR headset and now a new report has claimed that the headset will still hit stores before the end of 2022.

In a research, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that adequate supplies of the VR/AR headset will not arrive until the first quarter of 2023. This means the initial release will see only a few units of the Apple headset, reports MacRumors.

The headset will feature two "3P pancake lenses", which have a folded design that allows light to reflect back and forth between the display and lenses.

The headset will focus on gaming, media consumption, and communication.

It will have two processors, one with the same level of computing power as M1 along with a lower-end chip to handle input from different sensors.

The headset may come with at least six-eight optical modules to simultaneously provide continuous video see-through AR services.

The upcoming Apple headset will be similar to the Oculus Quest, and some prototypes being tested include external cameras to enable some AR features.

It may feature at least 15 camera modules, eye-tracking, possibly iris recognition, and could cost between $2,000 and $3,000.
