Apple’s rumored mixed-reality headset might get an in-person event this year

Apple is purportedly wasting zero time jumping back into in-person gatherings.

According to Bloomberg, the company is planning to announce its highly anticipated mixed-reality headset within “the next several months” at an event that will presumably be open to select media and industry partners.

The news comes only a day after Apple confirmed its Worldwide Developer Conference would be held virtually this summer for the second year in a row. But while the tech giant is clearly content with unveiling its updated operating systems via livestream, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman stresses that the same approach won’t fly for its headset.

“Sometime in the next several months, the company is poised to announce a mixed reality headset, its first major new device since 2015. If possible, Apple won’t want to make such a critical announcement at an online event. It wants employees, the media, its partners and developers in the room.” Considering the best (and really only) way to experience mixed-reality is by physically donning a headset, demoing this new Apple device during a livestream just wouldn’t do it justice. So it makes sense that Apple would want to go all in for this one — even with the ongoing pandemic. What can we expect from this headset? Rumors point to dual-curved 8K displays with swappable visors and over a dozen external cameras to track hand movements. It’s also said to include technology that allows for both augmented and virtual reality experiences (hence the “mixed reality” label).

According to MacRumors, well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims it’s also going to be portable, meaning users won’t have to contend with messy wires. With its own onboard computing power and storage, the experience would be similar to Facebook’s standalone Oculus Quest 2 — no tethering to a PC or laptop required. But don’t get too excited about acquiring one of Apple’s MX headsets anytime soon. Kuo predicts it won’t be available until 2022. It’s highly possible that Apple’s rumored in-person event might just be held to show off its MX prototype. Still, knowing people from all over the world could be visiting Apple Park to check this thing out

A One-Stop solution for every distributors horror story

Being a small or mid-sized enterprise could be definitely more rewarding than an office job for some, especially those looking for adventure in day to day life.

Below are some of the horror stories that entrepreneurs wake up to on some if not most mornings.

  • Multiple calls, texts and mails from the same anxious customer who just bought the last $15 gift card.
  • You just can’t seem to make the connection between your newest promo and resulting sales.
  • Products delivered to the wrong address.
  • No way to communicate to the customer who just NEEDED the product that day.
  • Miscommunicated dates and/or contact details now your delivery personnel is sitting outside an address wondering what to do with the package.
  • Confusion between employees about who is to deliver what (especially with the mounting orders thanks to the approaching holiday season)
  • And after all that you just can’t seem to figure out what would get your customers to give you that five star rating that you know you deserve
