The news comes from the “Before Going to Press (before publication)” report of the paid version of “DigiTimes”, which is said to indicate that Apple has completed the second phase of engineering testing of EVT 2 to ensure that the prototype device meets Apple’s design and specifications.

However, judging from this news, although Apple’s head-mounted display seems to be expected to be unveiled before the end of 2022, Mark Gurman, a technology reporter from Bloomberg, previously pointed out that due to development problems, Apple’s head-mounted display may be delayed until 2023.
Even if some netizens found Apple Glass in the Apple Store code, it also confirmed that Apple is developing a system for head-mounted displays, and also proved the existence of this operating system . According to the description, Apple’s head-mounted display is indeed real, and the huge VR/ The AR market is just about to take off.
“MacRumors” believes that the latest report from DigiTimes shows that Apple’s head-mounted display is about to enter the mass production stage, and the product launch time will fall around 2022 or 2023.
According to rumors, this head-mounted display has a lightweight design, two 4K micro LED display screens, 15 optical film groups, two main processors, support for Wi-Fi 6E network, eye tracking, see-through AR mode, object tracking , gesture control… etc. As for the price part, according to some reports, the price is at least US$3,000 (about NT$83,000).
