Kuo: Apple AR Headset Coming in Late 2022 With Mac-Level Computing Power

Apple’s long-awaited augmented reality (AR) headset project is set to bear its first fruits at the end of next year with the launch of the first device with a few processors to support its advanced features, according to a new research report from well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo seen by MacRygter.

According to Kuo, the advanced main processor is said to resemble the M1 chip Apple introduced for its first set of Apple silicon Macs last year, while a lower processor will handle the sensor-related aspects of the device.

Kuo says the original AR headset will be able to function independently without being tied to a Mac or iPhone, and Apple intends to support a “comprehensive range of applications” in order to replace ‌iPhone‌ within ten years.

We anticipate that Apple’s AR headset, launched in 4Q22, will be equipped with two processors. The advanced processor will have the same computing power as the M1 for Mac, whereas the lower processor will be responsible for sensor-related computing.

The Power Management Unit (PMU) design on the Advanced Processor is similar to the M1’s because it has the same level of computing power as the M1.

In addition to AR, Kuo says the headset will also be able to support virtual reality (VR) experiences thanks to a pair of 4K Micro OLED screens from Sony, which require the computing power of an M1-like chip.

Apple’s AR headset requires a separate processor, as the sensor’s computing power is significantly higher than iPhones. For example, the AR headset requires at least 6-8 optical modules to simultaneously provide continuous video-transparent AR services to the users. By comparison, an iPhone requires up to 3 optical modules running simultaneously and does not require continuous data processing.

Last week, Kuo said both the upcoming headset and the iPhone 14 coming next year will support Wi-Fi 6E technology, which offers the increased bandwidth and lower interference needed for AR and VR experiences.
