According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple’s upcoming virtual reality headset is expected to support hundreds of thousands of iPad apps and have a comprehensive range of features.
According to Bloomberg, Apple has incorporated gaming, fitness, and e-reader features in their virtual reality headset to attract both developers and consumers. The headset will reportedly offer the ability to watch sports in virtual reality and play “top-tier” games that are compatible with Apple’s other devices.
Most of Apple’s popular iPad apps, such as Books, Camera, FaceTime, Maps, and Messages, will be compatible with the headset, and hundreds of thousands of third-party iPad apps will also reportedly work with the device upon its launch.
According to Bloomberg, while the Fitness app is expected to be a major focus, it may not be available at the launch of the virtual reality headset.
According to the report, the virtual reality headset will come with an external battery, which will be placed inside the user’s pocket and connected to the headset using a specialized charging cable. The battery will have a visual resemblance to Apple’s MagSafe Battery Pack, and it will be charged through a USB-C cable, which is an industry standard.
According to top Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the company is concerned about how consumers will respond to the new headset in the face of a softening macroeconomic background. The headset is expected to be announced at Apple’s WWDC event in June and will reportedly cost at least $3,000, which is three times the price of Meta’s high-end Quest Pro.
