Apple is rumoured to be launching an AR/VR headset sometime next year. According to reports, a demo was shown to its board as early as May this year.

Now, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the headset could be delayed until the second half of 2023 because of some unspecified software-related issues.

That said, Kuo still believes there's a chance Apple could announce it in the early part of 2023 with WWDC 2023 looking like the most possible time.

Announcing at WWDC 2023 would give Apple the opportunity to also release an SDK for developers to create apps for the headset.

It would also give it enough time to space it from the traditional iPhone announcements in September.

The headset is rumoured to run a new OS called RealityOS with insiders believing it will feature two 4K micro-OLED displays, an array of cameras, and some variant of Apple's M-series processors for Macs.

Kuo also said that the headset will likely be a very expensive and niche product and he predicts Apple will only ship around 500,000 units.
