Kuo: Apple MR headset delayed due to software bugs
Ming-Chi Kuo shared his latest update on the Apple MR headset and the bad news is that the device will likely be postponed to launch alongside the iPhone 15 series in September. Kuo explains that the headset is facing software issues and the likelihood of a potential release this Spring is dwindling. There are no specifics on the nature of the mentioned software issues but it seems that the rumored WWDC launch is unlikely at this point.
China’s Luxshare ICT is expected to be the leading manufacturing partner for the Apple MR headset with mass production set for the first half of this year. Based on recent rumors, Apple might launch its MR headset as the Reality Pro. The device will likely run its own xrOS operating system and may cost as much as $3,000 according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.
Kuo also shared some preliminary details for the second-generation Apple MR headset set to debut in 2025. It will reportedly come in two versions – a more affordable one made by Foxconn and a higher-end model which will again be manufactured by Luxshare.
