Rumor: Apple AR headset not coming until 2022, followed by AR glaseses in 2023

According to The Information, Apple plans  to release an augmented-reality (AR) headset in 2022 and a sleeker pair of AR glasses by 2023.

Quoting unnamed “people familiar with the matter,” the article says that Apple Vice President Mike Rockwell, who heads the team responsible for Apple’s AR and virtual reality initiatives, led the meeting, which included new details about the design and features of the AR headset.

Chances this rumor is true, according to the Sellers Resesarch Group (that’s me). 50%. I think it’s logical that Apple will release an iPhone-powered AR headset (the rumored “Apple Glasses”), followed later by sleeker AR glasses because we all know how the company wants to keep making its products slimmer. However, I think we’ll see the former in mid to late 2020 and the glasses in 2021 or 2022.
