Apple is rumoured to announce its mixed-reality headset as soon as January 2023, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has reiterated.

Kuo describes Apple's headset as a "game-changer" for the augmented-reality and virtual-reality market. Describing some of the headset's functionality, he says that while Apple has repeatedly touted its focus on AR, the headset will "offer an excellent immersive experience" and a "video see-thru" mode. The headset is expected to boost demand for immersive gaming and multimedia entertainment experiences.

The device is said to be the most complicated product Apple has ever designed. The supply chain may also be quite complicated, leading Apple to use components from many of its existing suppliers.

Kuo also believes that Apple has  has "significant competitive advantages" in the headset space, and thus, does not need to join the Metaverse Standards Forum.

As for the details, the headset is rumored to feature a lightweight design, two 4K micro-OLED displays, 15 optical modules, two main processors, Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, eye tracking, object tracking, and hand gesture controls. The price point is unclear, but some reports indicate that it could cost around $3,000.
