Apple XR touted to make WWDC 2023 debut with cutting-edge, super-slim first-gen headset
The designer Marcus Kane has posted the latest renders of the device believed by many - XRAI Glass CEO Dan Scarfe included - to spearhead Apple's ambition to successfully move "life beyond smartphones" (or so Tim Cook might hope) as of the first day of WWDC23 (June 5, 2023 - or less than 24 hours from now).
The "Reality-series" headset is thus now touted to "legitimize work many companies have been doing for years" in a much slimmer form-factor than previously thought, currently portrayed as more like fancy goggles than a gaming headset - albeit ones powered by an M2 platform and 16GB of RAM.
The first-gen Apple visor is in fact now touted not to be much thicker than a top-end iPhone, yet still pack all the most relevant and cutting-edge tech it needs to deliver the "killer" xrOS-powered experience in 4K.
That, of course, implies that the headset is incapable of accommodating any other type of glasses - in fact, it is now portrayed as being available to order with custom (and, of course, optional) corrective lens replacements.
If so, the first-gen product could indeed represent a whole new multiverse of 'Apple tax'. Either way, it is said to have its first public demo live in a space made of the Apple headquarters' soccer pitch temporarily converted into an enclosed space immediately after the WWDC23 State of the Union address.
