The headphones of mixed reality (VR/AR) from Manzana, which are supposed to be released later this year, could be delayed until the end of 2022 and even 2023.

The Cupertino company is considering postponing the official launch date since some problems related to the device’s hardware have been found, according to Mark Gurmann, Bloomberg journalist and a trusted source on future Apple products

Problems with some components

According to Gurman, there are some limitations to the heat problem. The reason is that the lenses will use high end processors, commonly used in commercial computers. Of course, these components generate heat and the method of heat dissipation must be completely different in a device which is very different in shape and size from a computer.

In fact, the source mentions that the glasses will use two processors, known internally as N301. One of them could have a similar performance to the M1 Pro that we found in the most recent generation of the macbook pro.

The two challenges that Apple faces with its Mixed reality glasses

As a general rule, to overcome the thermal challenge, Apple had devised a external processing device that transferred data wirelessly to the lenses. However, they dropped the proposal when Jony Ive, Apple’s former chief design officer, objected to the idea.

Another challenge facing Apple engineers is the cameras that will allow them to offer augmented reality experiences. The supplier of these components will be LG, which will start production in the second half of 2022.

The WWDC 2022 could offer more details of the software

Apple’s original plan was to introduce its VR/AR glasses in WWDC 2022 and reach the market in the coming months. However, those led by Tim Cook have informed their production line partners that at least the launch could be delayed until next year.

“Apple recently informed supply chain partners that the device likely won’t launch until 2023, according to people familiar with the discussions. However, they are still pushing vendors to have units available by the end of this year to be ready for launch,” says Mark Gurman.

Also, Gurman assures that although the device has its own operating system (rOS) and his own store Applications, it will also be compatible with iOS 16.

Therefore, it is not ruled out that Apple makes known some details related to the lens software in the middle of the year; although the hardware will be revealed at another time.
