Gaming, media consumption and communication are mainstays of Apple’s upcoming VR/AR headset, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gorman.
The VR/AR headset is coming in 2023 with a focus on the game
The same journalist thinks that the headset Launched in 2023:
I can imagine Apple announcing the headset at WWDC 2022 and using the event to develop AR and VR applications. Then they can sell the product as late as the same year or in 2023.

Now Gurman says that because the headset packs a punch, with more CPU cores and “extremely” high resolutions with its own app store, these games become a natural part of the product. Gurman believes that Apple’s plan is to position the product as a “game developer’s dream” and that media consumption will also matter.
You may remember that Apple traded the VR entertainment company NextVR Spring 2020?
NextVR does not sell headsets, but virtual reality experiences in the form of sports and music for a number of well-known VR platforms, including Oculus and Windows. Now all that content may soon be gone, as NextVR employees will be ready to move from San Diego to Cupertino.

The last of the three pillars is communication. Gurman thinks Animojis and VR FaceTime will be the next big thing.
It was previously reported that the headset will be relatively light, and will get 2 CPUs, 2 x 4K micro LED’s, 15 optical units, eye tracking, and Wifi 6e.
