Apple AR Headset Would Be Lighter Than iPhone

Apple AR Headset

There has been speculation about the augmented or mixed reality headset from Apple for a long time, but recently the reports have increased in frequency and content. Now a particularly interesting detail has emerged, namely that according to which the headset should be particularly light.

Apple is known for the fact that when it comes to products that you are not considered to be the inventor of, you like to wait a long time and develop your own version in peace. The group from the Californian Cupertino wants to do something as perfect as possible then start with a quick shot. This also applies to the topic of virtual and augmented reality. Because here the hype is long gone, at Apple, however, the rumours and insider reports are just really getting started.

The well-informed analyst and Apple expert Ming-Chi Kuo has now also learned something new. Although this usually only makes predictions, these are mostly based on inside information – because what Kuo predicts is surprisingly often true. And so you should and must also his youngest from 9to5Mac take published “Research Note” seriously.

Lighter than iPhone and the competition

Accordingly, the Apple headset will weigh just 150 grams. This would make the Californian AR headset a whole lot lighter than (more or less) comparable headsets: Oculus Quest 2 weighs 503 grams, Microsoft’s HoloLens 2 is 645 grams and Valve Index even 809 grams. Apple would weigh 150 grams Even undercut the iPhone 12, because the standard version weighs 164 grams but it will be a while before the world can convince itself of how such a lightweight headset can be worn and what features it offers. Because several well-informed media recently reported that Apple will not launch its headset before 2022.
