New information about the highly anticipated Apple mixed-reality headset, reveals something surprising. The coming product from Apple will stand out from the competition in the accessory department. According to available information, this mixed-reality headset will come with a waist-mounted battery pack.
This is interesting because other headsets in its category come with built-in battery packs. The reason behind this separate accessory by Apple’s design engineers is still unclear.
From the information available, the Apple mixed-reality headset will last for two hours on a single charge which is the same battery capacity available on existing mixed-reality headsets in the industry. Taking out the battery from this headset doesn’t aim to improve battery capacity, but possibly leaves room for more technology in the headset.
Other details of this headset include its processor, the Apple H2 chip. Just like the Meta Quest Pro, this mixed-reality headset will integrate real world with the virtual experience. To make this possible, the headset will come with motors for lens adjustment. It will also come with a switch key to turn off VR mode and interact with the real world while the headsets are still on.
The launch date of this mixed-reality headset is still unknown, but it is in the development phase. For its price, experts expect it to cost over $3000 with its waist-mounted battery pack that’s gotten us curious. More information on this device as well as other coming Apple devices will soon be available.
