Apple is planning to launch a mixed reality headset by 2022, augmented reality glasses by 2025, and contact lens type products by 2030-2040, according to a new report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
"We predict that Apple's MR/AR product roadmap includes three phases: helmet type by 2022, glasses type by 2025, and contact lens type by 2030–2040," wrote Kuo. "We foresee that the helmet product will provide AR and VR experiences, while glasses and contact lens types of products are more likely to focus on AR applications."
Kuo says that Apple has several prototypes of its headset that weigh 200-300 grams but the final weight could be reduced to 100-200 grams if it can solves some technical problems. This would make them significantly lighter than existing VR devices. Kuo also predicts they will be priced around $1,000, in line with the price of a "high-end iPhone". The headset will purportedly be equipped with Sony's Micro-OLED displays and several optical modules that provide a "see-through AR experience" in addition to VR.
