Apple’s WWDC conference begins on June 5 and it is increasingly certain that it will be at this event that the brand presents its AR/VR headsets.
According to today’s news, Apple invited virtual reality experts to attend the conference in person, suggesting that the brand will even unveil the innovative device.
WWDC invites you to hint at the launch of the new Apple headphones
From June 5 to 9, Apple will hold its WWDC conference. At this event, as is customary, the brand will present all the new versions of operating systems in its line of equipment, but there is more.
It seems that this year the conference will not only focus on software news. New hardware will also be unveiled, namely a new 15-inch MacBook Air. However, this will not be the team that will focus attention on itself.
It seems more and more certain that, after waiting so long, in two weeks we will finally get to know the much-talked-about AR/VR headset from the brand that has been in development for seven years.
According to the 9to5Mac website, Apple has invited some virtual reality experts to attend this event in person. These invitations only make sense if the Cupertino company is going to reveal something in that area. And that something can only be the new AR/VR headset and the device’s operating system.
The information gains even more credibility if we look at Apple’s history. It is not the first time that the brand resorts to this strategy of inviting specialists in an area when preparing to launch a new product in the segment.
In 2014, when it was about to launch the Apple Watch as a fashion accessory, the Cupertino company invited several international fashion journalists to attend its regular September event.
Not to mention the various and different sources that have advanced since it will be at this event that Apple finally presents the device that could become Tim Cook’s legacy in the company.
Of course, there is still no official confirmation, but we must prepare so that this WWDC conference has more news and more relevant than usual.
Apple presents new headphones in June, but their arrival in stores will only be at the end of the year
Although the new headset will be unveiled at WWDC in June, it’s expected to arrive in stores later this year, possibly in time to be considered as a Christmas gift.
Some challenges encountered in the mass production of the device, as well as its high price, which will exceed three thousand dollars per unit, forced Apple to reduce the number of units available on the market.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, by the end of the year Apple will only release 500,000 copies of the new headphones.
