Apple’s long-rumored mingled world headset is likely to be powered by two processors, distributed according to renowned adviser Ming-Chi Kuo. In Kuo’s latest research report seen by MacRumors and 9to5Mac, the commentator said that the device will have a main processor with the same computing power as the M1 chip and a secondary processor to handle all sensor-related computing. With both processors in place, the headset won’t is essential to tethered to an iPhone or a Mac.
The device will be able to provide not just augmented, but also virtual reality knowledge, Kuo said, thanks to a duo of 4K Micro OLED parades from Sony. That’ll simply be possible, because the M1 chip has the power needed to be able to support the exposes. As for the separate processor for its sensor, it’s apparently required because “the computing power of the sensor is significantly higher than that of the iPhone.” Kuo expects the design to arrive in late 2022 and said Apple will make sure it can support a “comprehensive range of applications” with the ultimate objective of superseding the iPhone in a decade’s time.
Kuo’s prediction that the headset will be a standalone device proceeds against each of these reports by The Information from September claiming that it will need to wirelessly connected to an an iPhone, an iPad or a computer to handle most of its compute. That report also said that the headset will be aimed at makes and creators and will have a possible premium of around $3,000.
