AppleInsider render of the forthcoming Apple VR headset

Prominent leaker Evan Blass claims that a tester who has used several iterations of Apple’s forthcoming Apple VR headset, has gone from underwhelmed to ecstatic.

There are no further details than that, but the implication is that the “several opportunities” came over the headset’s long development process. So it’s not surprising that the experience has improved as Apple has continued to work on it, but it is encouraging.

It’s expected that while the headset will be the main highlight of WWDC, it will not be released to the public for many months. Just as with the announcement of Apple Silicon, WWDC is likely to build interest from consumers, but chiefly to get developers working on third-party apps.
