Some rumors suggest that the headset by Apple will be priced at $3,000. From this perspective, Quest 3 by Meta is a significantly affordable option. Meta states that the Quest 3 is an all-in-one device. On the other hand, the headset by Apple will include a separate battery pack accompanied by a wire.

Mark Gurman of Bloomberg gave firsthand accounts of the Quest 3 in his newsletter over the weekend before it was made public. He claimed that the Quest 3’s emphasis on mixed reality, together with its significantly improved video pass-through capabilities, speedier performance, and extensive content library, left him “impressed.”
