Apple CEO Tim Cook has hinted that we need to “stay tuned” to find out what the company has to offer when it comes to artificial intelligence (AR) technology. Apple is rumored to be releasing its first AR/VR headset in the coming year and it’s one of the tech giant’s most anticipated products. Apple’s mixed reality headset has been in the works for quite some time and so far we’ve seen plenty of leaks and rumors about how the device might turn out. Apple isn’t known for revealing anything about its next product and CEO Tim Cook’s comments during an interview with China Daily are a rare incident.
“I’m incredibly excited about AR, as you may know, and the bottom line for any technology, including AR, is to put humanity at the center of it. And that’s what we focus every day. Right now, as an example, we have over 14,000 ARKit apps in the App Store, bringing AR experiences to millions of people around the world. Cook said at the China Daily.
I think that despite this, we are still at the very beginning of the evolution of this technology. I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunities we’ve seen in this space and stay tuned and you’ll see what we have to offer. he added again.
According to known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the company will begin testing its AR/VR headset in Q3 2022. The device would be powered by powerful processors as seen in MacBook Pro models and it will likely run the new operating system ‘realityOS’. The headset is rumored to feature two 4K micro-OLED displays along with 15 camera modules. The device is running to cost around $3000.
