As part of the newly announced overall report, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says: Apple’s Apple AR VR headset is rumored to have up to 15 built-in cameras.

Previously, Kuo had expected Apple AR to launch in 2022, for about 1,000 (about VND 23 million).

In the long run, Apple  is said to be developing independent augmented reality glasses. However, this product needs more time to develop and will not be available on the market for the next 1-2 years.

In the meantime, Apple is preparing to launch a virtual reality glasses, similar to Valve Index and HTC Vive Pro. The product will have a number of gadgets for consumers, but is expected primarily to attract developers to participate in Apple’s AR ecosystem.

Why do we need so many cameras? In addition to collecting data from outside, Apple AR is expected to accurately track the user’s eye movements. This will allow them to increase accuracy, targeting only what the user is currently viewing, rather than the overall landscape. This technique is called Foveated rendering.

Obviously, Apple’s AR glasses are expected to be very impressive on the specs sheet. A previous report from The Information said that Apple AR will have two 8K screens with one screen per eye.
