The Apple Vision Pro announcement made a huge splash at the beginning of June, marking the arrival of the iPhone into XR. While its release won’t occur until 2024, Apple is keen to get developers on board as soon as possible. This will begin shortly, with developers able to apply for an Apple Vision Pro dev kit in July.
When Meta launched its Quest Pro mixed reality headset in 2022 it didn’t exactly set the world alight. Not like the Apple Vision Pro did when the Cupertino tech company unveiled its first immersive device during WWDC 2023. But how do these two juggernauts compare, considering details like the Apple Vision Pro price difference and Quest Pro’s gaming library? There are many variables so let’s start with a Vision Pro vs Quest Pro spec comparison.
Most of Apple’s WWDC 2023 keynote was the same old mediocre updates. Expensive new Macs, iOS enhancements – Stand by anyone! – and Apple Watch trying to make us all fitter. But, when CEO Tim Cook said there was “one more thing” we all knew what it was, Apple’s long-awaited mixed reality headset. In one bite-sized morsel, here are the Apple Vision Pro price, specs and release details.
The Apple Vision Pro has finally been unveiled, taking the XR world by storm! In typical Apple style, the presentation during the WWDC 2023 keynote was slick and stylish and left us wanting to know more about the device. A definite head-turner thanks to its feature set and design, there was one clear omission from the announcement; immersive gaming.
Well, well, well, who saw that coming? Meta has taken the reports that Apple will be unveiling its new headset seriously and pipped them to the post. Yesterday, as if you couldn’t miss it, the Meta Quest 3 announcement dropped almost out of the blue. Ahead of the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase Mark Zuckerberg released the first official details. These include specification confirmations and a price, whilst noting that Quest 3 will be “Our most powerful headset yet”.
As WWDC approaches, Apple’s flagship event for developers, the rumour mill has gone into overdrive. Not for the latest minute iPhone upgrade or a bafflingly similar Apple Watch, nope it’s all about virtual reality. Or more precisely XR, because Apple’s long-rumoured headset will supposedly offer VR and mixed reality applications. The secretive company has publically stayed away from the technology for years but that could be coming to an end in June. However, for most of us, here’s why you shouldn’t be excited about Apple’s VR headset.
Earlier this month XR Source reported on the rumour that Apple would be unveiling its first mixed reality (MR) headset this Spring. Now there’s a new rumour. Bloomberg reports that Apple is now postponing the launch of another device, an augmented reality (AR) headset, due to technical challenges.
A new rumour has surfaced regarding Apple and it’s widely touted XR device. The unknown unit has been shrouded in secrecy for many years, but it’s not been the best kept secret. The XR community knows that Apple is working on something, but it’s not known exactly what. That looks likely to change this summer with a rumoured Spring 2023 reveal for Apple’s XR device.
