Apple’s $2000 AR Headset, according to supply chain sources, will go on sale in the second half of 2022, with the AR glasses following in the first half of 2023.
According to a fresh supply chain rumor, Apple will release its first AR gadget geared for companies and industrial applications in 2022, confirming previous predictions from the typically reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

According to Digitimes, the business headgear, not the consumer “Apple Glass,” is undergoing testing.
According to the journal, “Apple’s augmented reality helmet has already passed one P2 [second phase of prototype testing] and will go to the EVT (Engineering Verification Test) stage before mass manufacturing begins.”
According to Digitimes, the initial headset could cost more than $2,000, and as a result, Apple anticipates a small initial sales volume. According to unidentified sources, the final design for the consumer version, dubbed “Apple Glass,” has not been completed.
According to the company’s forecasts, “Apple Glass” will begin commercial production “beyond 2023.”
Digitimes has gained a well-deserved reputation for expertise for extracting information from Apple’s supply chain. On the other hand, its justification for the inferences it draws about Apple’s plans is substantially weaker. Wednesday’s data falls more into the latter group than the former.
Separately, additional reports on Apple’s first augmented reality headgear indicate that it will require an iPhone to function.
