The Mac Mixed Reality Headset may not arrive until 2023

Sometime next year, Apple is expected to announce its mixed reality headset. In spite of this, a new report suggests that the company’s upcoming wearable product may be delayed from being available on the market due to delays in the manufacturing process.

It has been reported that Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst who is well known for his AR/VR based headsets, will be delayed due to unclear “software related issues” that are plaguing the Cupertino-based giant. Furthermore, the company will launch the new headset sometime in the second half of next year as a result of these issues. While there is still a possibility that the brand will announce the product earlier in the year, and then start releasing it later in the year, the product is likely to debut by the end of the year. For those unaware, Apple usually hosts its WWDC event in June, so we can expect the company to reveal this headset along with an SDK for developers for AR/VR apps for this device during this conference.

The analyst had previously stated that the company will unveil its headset during a media event in January 2023. It will then reportedly begin mass shipments in the second quarter of 2023

. But Kuo is unsure whether the delay would lead to the January announcement also being pushed back while also stating that an overly lengthy period between a media event and mass shipments can impact sales. In simpler terms, the longer the delay of shipments after announcements, the sales might be affected. The mixed reality headset is expected to be an expensive product, so Kuo projects that the company will ship around 500,000 headsets in 2023.
