Apple is tipped to raise its challenge to Meta's bid for AR/VR dominance from early 2023 with the launch of its first ever headset. Now, the inaugural potential Quest-series competitor is said to go into production around that time at the facilities of an established manufacturing partner. Meanwhile, for those who can help make the software for the alleged new hardware, the Cupertino giant may be hiring.

Apple's potential metaverse aspirations are projected to kick off in earnest with the launch of its Reality and/or Reality Pro: alleged first-gen headsets with the OEM's signature design gloss and seamless hardware/software integration. The impression of the latter may be reinforced with a slew of job openings currently advertised by the Cupertino giant.

The roles seem to span the gamut of augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) product creation, from prototyping through development to software and (unsurprisingly, as this is Apple under discussion here) services. Apple also now seems to have a plan for the fruits of the resulting labor.

According to the Taiwanese industry blog DigiTimes, the contract to assemble Apple's first ever piece of 'Reality-series' hardware, a headset with the code-name N301, has been secured in its entirety by Pegatron.

This manufacturer is also associated with the production of iPhone 14-series hardware, and is now also tipped to start mass production of this inaugural AR/VR device in the first quarter of 2023.
