Apple will reportedly announce its long-awaited AR (augmented reality) headset at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June.
According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the tech giant is well prepared for the announcement of the AR/MR headset.
"It is highly likely that Apple will announce its long-awaited AR/MR headset at the WWDC in June. I think Apple is well prepared for the announcement of this new device," Kuo said in a Medium post on Monday.
The analyst added that the headset's announcement next month "bodes well" for the share price of the supply chain, citing five components that constitute the device's "most expensive material costs" apart from assembly.
These five components include -- the 4K micro-OLED displays, dual M2-based processors, the headset casing, 12 optical cameras for tracking hand movements, and the external power supply.
