Apple’s augmented reality headset was reportedly expected to launch in the second quarter of 2022, however, a note to investors from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed an updated prediction for when production on the headset will begin.
According to Kuo’s note, the production of Apple’s augmented reality head mounted display (HMD) will begin in the fourth quarter of 2022. The move is to give Apple time to iron out any kinks when it comes to the device’s design. Kuo also noted that Apple is most likely continuing to test various design solutions to help ensure comfort and usability.
“The AR/MR HMD requires much more industrial design requirements than smartphones because the comfort of wearing them involves so many design details. Therefore, we believe Apple continues to test the best industrial design solutions so far,” Kuo wrote in a note to investors seen by AppleInsider
