Apple’s AR headset uses the same 96 W power adapter as the 14-inch MacBook Pro, 2 chipsets: Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo


According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s alleged AR / VR headset will use the same 96W USB Type-C power adapter that comes with the 14-inch MacBook Pro. This means the headset will use the same amount of power as the company’s flagship laptop needs. The analyst had previously said that Apple’s AR headset could hit the market in 2022 and will be powered by two processors. Additionally, the analyst believes the tech giant could replace the iPhone within a decade.

Citing a research note from TF International Securities, MacRumors reported that Kuo said Apple’s headset will have Mac-grade processing power. He reiterated that the device is powered by two processors, including a 5nm chip and a 4nm chip. He also says that both chips are made by TSMC. The analyst said that one of the chips will perform similarly to last year’s M1 Mac while the other will be used for handling the sensors on the headset.

The same report also suggests that Apple’s AR headset could come with VR support and possibly two Sony 4K micro OLED displays. According to Kuo, the AR headset could have its own ecosystem and Apple could position it “independently” of the iPhone and Mac instead of an accessory. Recently, Kuo claimed that the headset will come with powerful 3D sensors that will be more advanced than the ones used in the iPhone and iPad for Face ID. The headset should also have an innovative gesture and motion detection system. It could weigh around 350 grams and cost around $ 1,000 (about 74,000 rupees), according to the analyst.
