After one Apple highlight chased the next in 2022, things could be a little quieter for the tech giant in 2023 – but of course we can expect some exciting new products. But why might fewer Apple gadgets come out this year? Very simple: the developers are already busy! And with the brand new VR headset, which will be presented in 2023. We tell you everything we already know about it.

Apple has been working on a VR headset for years

In fact, Apple has been working on virtual reality glasses for seven years. One of the reasons for this is that, in addition to the headset itself, a separate operating system, another app store and a new chip must be developed. According to Apple expert Mark Gurman, the VR headset was supposed to launch in 2019, but the launch was repeatedly postponed. Now, in his “Power On” newsletter, the Bloomberg journalist speculates that the Reality Pro (that’s what the new VR glasses will be called) will be presented at a WWDC event in June 2023 and can finally be sold in the fall of 2023.

New operating system for Reality Pro

Gurman also reports that Apple is currently working with “high-profile developers” on apps for the new xrOS operating system for VR glasses to carry over applications we know from iPhones, iPads and Co. for Reality Pro. The headset will initially be primarily aimed at professional users and developers. They should be familiarized with the operating system and software features before Reality Pro officially goes on sale this fall. In the next few years, we could also expect a VR headset intended for private Apple fans.

This is what Apple’s VR headset could look like

Want to know what Reality Pro could look like? Then you’re in luck, because 3D artist Ian Zelbo shared a rendering image. If he’s right about his design assumptions, the typical sleek Apple design with a strap that strongly resembles the bracelets on the Apple Watch awaits with the VR glasses. But see for yourself:
