According to Bloomberg, Apple will finally release a VR headset in Spring 2023 along with upgraded MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs and possibly a new Mac Pro too.
The release of an Apple VR headset, rumored to be called the “Reality Pro”, has been in the pipeline for years now but finally looks set to be announced in Spring with a shipping forecast for Fall 2023.
The Reality Pro will also have its own operating system named “xrOS” which has been codenamed “Borealis” at Apple.
Since nothing has been confirmed by Apple, there is no confirmation about how much the Apple VR headset will cost but suggestions are the price will be in the region of $1,000.
In addition, Bloomberg claims there there will be some new Macs released in 2023:
- A faster MacBook Pro with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips to replace the M1 MacBook Pros.
- A new 15 inch MacBook Air to be released in Fall 2023 to replace the current 12 inch model.
- A new Mac Pro with a new M2 Ultra chip which will be even more powerful than the Mac Studio.
- A new iMac Pro with a new M3 chip due for release in late 2023 or 2024.
At the moment there are no VR games for Mac due to a lack of support for Mac compatible VR headsets and complications supporting macOS without an eGPU.
But the latest news that Apple will finally release its own headset will hopefully start to change this.
