A new report reiterates that Apple’s VR headset will come with a Micro LED display, but also says it will come with the M1 chip and iOS.
From ET News:
“The component industry expects Apple to launch a virtual reality (VR) device for the metaverse market as early as this year. The Apple VR device will be equipped with an OLED (Micro Organic Light Emitting Diode) display. Apple has collaborated with TSMC on the development of this type of OLED display. Micro OLED displays do not require color filters because the OLEDs deposit directly on the chip wafer. »
The report goes on to say that the Apple VR will also include Apple’s M1 chip, the same seen on the Mac and iPad Pro lineup, while the operating system will be iOS. There has been no further indication that Apple will use iOS on this device, especially since in the past there has been talk of the alleged RealityOS from Apple, an ah-hoc operating system with its own App Store, which seems the most plausible solution.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman previously said that this VR device would be equipped with a faster chip than the M1, or at least tested with more powerful chips. In short, it seems clear that the information in this report should be taken with a grain of salt, as it might not be entirely correct.
