Apple's long-awaited AR/VR headset is set to debut at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June 2023, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. The launch date has been pushed back two months from the initial April timeline due to unresolved hardware and software issues discovered during product testing. Image credit: NBC This is not the first time Apple has delayed the release of its AR/VR headset, with previous launch dates initially slated for mid-2022, then pushed to January and April of 2023. While it's unclear what the latest delay means for a potential spring event, rumors suggest Apple could unveil a 15-inch MacBook Air and its new Apple Silicon Mac Pro.

Despite the delays, the AR/VR headset remains the headline product of the year for Apple. The company is still working to fix hand and eye control issues, and rumors suggest that users will be able to control the headset with both eye movements and hand gestures. However, the headset's estimated price tag of around $3,000 may limit its appeal to consumers. Apple is reportedly already working on a second-generation device that will be more affordable.

While the AR/VR headset's launch date could change again, Apple is keen to have it available for purchase by the end of 2023. The company's continued investment in AR and VR technology is a testament to its belief in the potential of these emerging technologies to revolutionize the way we interact with our devices and the world around us. With the launch of its AR/VR headset, Apple is set to take a big step forward in the world of mixed reality.
