Default Apple's mixed reality headset may be a standalone device

Apple's long-rumored mixed reality headset will be powered by two processors, according to renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In Kuo's latest research report seen by MacRumors and 9to5Mac, the analyst said that the device will have a main processor with the same computing power as the M1 chip and a secondary processor to handle all sensor-related computing. With both processors in place, the headset won't need to be tethered to an iPhone or a Mac.

The device will be able to provide not just augmented, but also virtual reality experiences, Kuo said, thanks to a pair of 4K Micro OLED displays from Sony. That'll only be possible, because the M1 chip has the power needed to be able to support the displays. As for the separate processor for its sensor, it's apparently necessary because "the computing power of the sensor is significantly higher than that of the iPhone." Kuo expects the device to arrive in late 2022 and said Apple will make sure it can support a "comprehensive range of applications" with the ultimate goal of replacing the iPhone in a decade's time.
