Apple is apparently developing a less expensive AR/VR headset. It is purportedly priced quite similarly to what the current iPhone offers.
The iPhone manufacturer has allegedly been quietly developing an AR/VR mixed reality headset for quite some time. The famed tech company has not, however, formally unveiled such a device.
This time, though, a fresh source says that Apple intends to introduce a mixed reality headset that is more reasonably priced.
Apple Cheaper AR/VR Headset: Same Price as iPhones
According to a recent rumour by Mac Rumors, the Cupertino giant’s first-ever AR/VR mixed reality headset is rather expensive, costing over $3,000, Given that it costs even more than the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro versions, it is undoubtedly rather pricey for the majority of buyers.
Given this, it appears that Apple is already working on a less expensive AR/VR gadget, presumably a cost-effective choice.
According to a Bloomberg News report, the tech giant is developing less expensive mixed-reality headgear. How affordable is it? According to early rumours, the price may be comparable to that of an iPhone today.
The entry-level iPhone 14 costs $799, but the most costly model, with up to 1 terabyte (TB) of internal storage, costs $1,599 in the United States, according to a report from Mac Rumors. It costs a little more in other nations.
Early reports for the rumoured less expensive mixed reality headset lacked pricing information.Therefore, it’s yet unknown what it will cost. For the time being, all we can do is guess whether it will cost $799 or $1,600.
More Affordable Mixed Reality Headset: Here’s What to Expect
According to The Information, Apple began developing the less expensive mixed reality headgear last year. Additionally, it’s been said that the tech giant is getting ready to release the cheaper model as early as 2024. But according to Bloomberg, the entry-level AR and VR headgear could be released between 2024 and 2025.
Take these forecasts with a grain of salt, though, as Apple has not yet announced any plans to introduce such a product. There may be delays or unexpected cancellations along the way.
According to reports, the Cupertino behemoth is attempting to use less expensive parts to lower the price of the mixed-reality headset.
Despite this, according to Mac Rumors, the first-ever Apple VR/AR Headset, which is planned to debut in 2023, will have the same functionality as the next, less expensive alternative.
