Apple VR/AR headset reportedly launching this year against wishes of design team

The Apple VR/AR headset has suffered a lot of delays, according to rumors, but the latest batch claim it’s set to arrive later this year. But that might not have happened, according to The Financial Times, had Apple executives not overruled the design team.

Financial Times’ report claims that Apple’s industrial design team warned against releasing the headset — claiming it wasn’t ready. Evidently they wanted to wait until more “lightweight AR glasses became technically feasible.” However, these concerns were reportedly overruled by Apple operations chief Jeff Williams and CEO Tim Cook.
