Massive Apple VR headset leak reveals high price, launch date and more

  • The Apple VR headset is rumored to be an expensive niche device that will serve as a bridge to Apple’s AR glasses.
  • Apple is testing the headset with a chip that’s even more powerful than the MacBook Pro M1 — but there’s a fan.
  • It could feature external cameras for AR features, including gesture controls and possibly movement tracking for ‘air typing’. 

Apple’s much-rumored virtual reality headset could be similar to the Oculus Quest 2, but it could also sport a fan-cooled processor that beats the Apple M1 chip and advanced movement tracking. 

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is testing a VR headset codenamed N301, with prototypes making use of external sensors and handle augmented reality as well. The latter part is noteworthy, as the AR-centric Apple Glasses are reportedly still a way off, whereas the VR headset is tipped to arrive in 2022.
