Other than this, it is also being reported that suppliers are preparing to kick off mass production for Apple's AR headset in the fourth quarter of this year. What this means is that mass production will potentially begin ahead of the launch expected in early 2023. However, the report also mentions that the initial production will not be large.

As for what we can expect, previous reports have suggested that Apple's AR headset will feature a micro-OLED display from Sony and LG which will be thin as well as power efficient. Other than this, the headset will house three 3D sensing modules and a mid to low-tier camera. Mark Gurman suggested that Apple's AR headset will focus on entertainment and gaming initially and then gain new features with forthcoming models.

Apple is looking to differentiate its AR headset from the likes of Meta, Google, and Sony with reference to content, usability, as well as portability. As for Samsung, the company will take its time to observe how the market responds to Apple's AR headset.
