Apple’s new flagship AR/VR headset completes the test: with three screens!

According to DigiTimes, Apple has completed key production tests of its long-rumored augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) headsets.

The device has reportedly completed a second phase of Engineering Validation Testing (EVT 2) to ensure the prototype device meets Apple’s design goals and specifications, and is expected to debut by the end of 2022.

Apple’s 2022 Mixed Reality headset will feature three displays. The display configuration will include two micro OLED displays (4K) and an AMOLED panel, and Sony will supply the micro OLED display that Apple will use.


Sony recently showed off a 4,000-pixel-per-inch 4K display specifically for use in VR headsets, and reports suggest it may have been developed specifically for Apple. If Apple is indeed using this technology from Sony, a hypothetical 4000 x 4000 pixel array would suggest the headset’s display would measure 1.4 inches diagonally.

According to previous sources, Apple’s AR product is also equipped with 15 optical modules, two main processors, Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, eye tracking, see-through AR mode, object tracking, gesture control and more, and the price is at least at $3153.
