Apple’s Mixed Reality headset could be a standalone device.
According to renowned analyst Ming Chi Ko, Apple’s long-running mixed reality headset will be powered by two processors. Viewed by Kuo in the latest research report Macromers And 9to5MacThe analyst said that the device will have a main processor with computing power like M1 chip and a secondary processor to handle all sensor related computing. With both processors, the headset won’t need to be tutored with the iPhone or Mac.
Thanks to a pair of 4K micro OLED displays from Sony, Kuo said the device would not only enhance, but also provide virtual reality experiences. This is only possible because the M1 chip has enough power to support the display. As far as a separate processor for its sensors is concerned, this is apparently necessary because “the computing power of the sensor is significantly higher than that of the iPhone.” Kuo expects the device to arrive by the end of 2022, and said that Apple will ensure that it supports a “comprehensive range of applications” with the ultimate goal of replacing the iPhone within a decade.
