Gurman: The First of Three Apple AR/VR Headset Devices Will Be Called “Apple Reality Pro”
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is developing at least three augmented reality and virtual reality headsets, the first of which will probably go on sale under the moniker “Apple Reality Pro.”
Gurman stated that there are at least three Apple headsets currently under development that he is aware of, with the codes “N301,” “N602,” and “N421” in the most recent issue of his “Power On” newsletter.
Gurman predicts that the first of these gadgets, N301, will be known as “Apple Reality Pro.” The company’s alleged “high-end competitor” to Meta’s planned Quest Pro headset is Apple Reality Pro. The N602 is said to be the original Apple Reality Pro headset’s replacement and might be less expensive. Apple’s long-rumored augmented reality glasses product, the N421, may not be released for some time, according to Gurman.
Gurman’s most recent revelation provides the first verifiable clue as to what Apple’s initial headset device would be called. It is important to note that the moniker “Reality Pro” corresponds with Apple’s most recent trademark applications. The phrases “Reality Processor,” “Reality Pro,” and “Reality One,” among others, are thought to be connected to Apple’s future headset gadgets, according to a Bloomberg article from last week.
Apple intends to introduce its first headset as early as January of next year, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. It may have features like two 4K micro-OLED screens, 15 optical modules, two primary CPUs, Wi-Fi 6E connection, eye tracking, object tracking, and hand gesture controls. Although the device’s exact pricing is yet unknown, several rumors suggest that it might cost approximately $3,000.
