Rumor | Apple Reality hardware and software will headline WWDC 2023
Apple's rumored bid to become the world's next big extended-reality (XR) company has met with speculation as to how that is going to go (not to mention how soon) that practically change by the week. The latest such projection, courtesy of Bloomberg contributor Mark Gurman, purports to debunk the last in stating that the "Reality" series is in fact ready for a WWDC 2023 debut after all.
This latest report also touts the launch as "one of the most important days in [Apple] history", as it represents a first potential step into "a post-iPhone era" for the Cupertino giant. In addition, the xrOS platform and SDKs necessary to help the Conference's audience realize any inspiration on seeing the first-gen Reality headset in action are allegedly now ready to go on June 5, 2023.
Regardless, the foray into XR in any form remains framed as one of the biggest gambles Apple has ever taken: one on consumer readiness to leave ProMotion or Retina displays behind in favor of their head-mounted counterparts. That may be why the OEM is still also tipped to launch new Macs and MacBooks in 2023.
