According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s rumored AR/VR headset will use the same 96W USB Type-C power adapter that’s bundled with the 14-inch MacBook Pro. This means that the headset will use as much power as the company’s flagship laptops. The analyst had earlier said that Apple’s AR headset may arrive in 2022 and will be powered by two processors. Furthermore, the analyst believes that the tech giant may want to replace the iPhone within a decade.
TF International Securities, citing a research note with MacRumors informed of Qi Kuo said that Apple’s headset will have Mac-level computing power. He reiterated that the device will be powered by two processors, which will include a 5nm chip and a 4nm chip. Furthermore, he says that both the chips will be manufactured by TSMC. The analyst said one of the chips will provide the same power as last year’s M1 Mac, while the other will be used to handle the sensors on the headset.
The same report also suggests that Apple’s AR headset could come with VR support and could be equipped with two Sony 4K micro-OLED displays. According to Kuo, the AR headset could have its own ecosystem and Apple could position it “independently” of the iPhone and Mac rather than as an accessory. Recently, Kuo had claimed that the headset would come with a powerful 3D sensor that would be more advanced than the sensors used in the iPhone and iPad for Face ID. The headset is said to feature an innovative gesture and motion detection system. It may weigh around 350 grams and cost around $1,000 (approximately Rs 74,000) according to analysts.
