Many sources are suggesting that Apple will unveil its first MR Mixed Reality headset, Reality Pro, at WWDC. Apple is said to be very keen on this new platform device.

Outside speculation, its internal or already MR Field in-depth discussion. Apple has launched AR/MR Functions on iPhone such as AR Maps, Object Capture and RealityKit 2, which may be the proof of Apple's plan to layout the whole MR Ecosystem software and technology in advance.

Sources say at least four of Apple's top executives worked on the MR Headset, Jeff Williams, the chief operating officer; Greg Joswiak, the senior vice president for global marketing; Johny Srouji, the senior vice president for hardware technology; and Phil Schiller, An Apple academician and former senior vice president.

Even Jony Ive, the former chief design officer, worked on the project as a third party through his personal studio after leaving Apple. Tim Cook may not be on that list, but as CEO, Cook must be.

Reality Pro will run the new xrOS system, which Apple developed from scratch as an MR Heads-up proprietary system.The speculation is that Apple's focus on improving the system and unifying its ecosystem may have led to fewer updates in its iOS 17-led iterations.

On the hardware side, the device will be equipped with multiple cameras and LiDAR to accurately capture and recognize the user's movements. In addition, Reality Pro will come with 4K or 8K resolution screens, which already provide the best MR Experience.

Finally, on the price front, Reality Pro will likely be priced between $3,000 and $4,000. With so much emphasis placed inside Apple, and with its luxurious hardware specifications, the pricing may come as no surprise.

Editor's Comments:

Both the hardware specs and the price range revealed in the leaks speak volumes about how serious Apple is about Reality Pro, a device that will be a testament to the company's commitment to the virtual reality space.

But back to virtual reality itself, could this be the cusp of a new era? We'll have to wait until Apple's big show at WWDC on June 6 to find out.
