In a couple of new tweets, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo offers some new thoughts on the rumored “Apple Glasses,” a mixed-reality headset and the upcoming iPhone 14.
Kuo says Apple’s rumored mixed-reality headset will be able to switch seamlessly between AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality).
From his tweet: Now everyone knows what a VR experience is & what an AR experience may look like. But for most people, it’s hard to imagine what kind of innovative experience the smooth switching between AR & VR can provide, and it may be one of key selling points of Apple’s headset. I think a complete mixed reality is not only the hardware that can support both AR & VR but the ability to integrate AR & VR and switch them smoothly for different scenarios. That’s why I’m using AR/MR to describe Apple’s headset expected to hit the store shelves in 2Q23.
Regarding the iPhone 14, Kuo thinks it will use a 6P autofocusing lens made by Genius for its front-facing camera. Other rumors about the upcoming iPhone 14 line-up include:
° Four new iPhone 14 models in the second half of the year are likely upgrade to AF (autofocus) and about f/1.9 aperture.
° At least some of the models will be eSIM-only.
° The iPhone 14 Pro will contain 8GB of RAM.
° Some will sport 120GHz displays.
° The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models will have a hole + pill design.
° The two high-end models will sport a 48 million pixel camera.
° The top two models have also have OLED screens.
° They will support the Wi-Fi 6E standard.
° Black, white, blue, red and purple will be the color options for the iPhone 14, while graphite, gold, silver and purple will be available on the iPhone 14 Pro.
° There will be a new purple colorway for both iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro that shifts in tone depending on the lighting.
