While Apple is investing in a new plant to make mini-LED and micro-LED displays for the iPad and Mac devices, its rumoured mixed-reality headset is said to come with a micro OLED display. 

TheElec claims that Apple has requested a sample of fine metal mask (FMM) from South Korean company APS Holdings for use in VR devices. The sample is believed to be used to determine if it can be used in the mass production of a VR device. In addition, the sample reportedy has a resolution of 3,000 ppi.

APS Holdings has been tasked by the South Korean government to develop the micro OLED display technology for high luminance and high-resolution AR applications. The goal is to have an AR glass with a resolution of 4,000 ppi by 2024.

Earlier this year, Nikkei Asia reported that the iPhone maker is working with TSMC on micro OLED displays for AR devices. The Information said that the mixed reality headset will have two ultra high-resolution 8K displays with advanced eye-tracking technology. It is believed to be priced around US$3,000. The publication also wrote that the headset needs to be paired with an iPhone to unlock its full functionality.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo estimates that the mixed reality headset will launch in mid-2022 and has 15 camera modules. He also claims that the headset could be one of the lightest in the market at less than 150g.
