“Apple Glasses” — the rumored augmented reality/virtual reality head-mounted display (HMD0 — may be delayed until 2023 due to issues during the development process, according to Bloomberg (a subscription is required to read the entire article).
What issues? Overheating, as well as camera and software glitches. Of course, it’s better for Apple to delay the release than sell a glitchy product.
Citing unnamed “people familiar with Apple’s plans,” Bloomberg says the tech giant originally planned to launch the headset in 2021 and ship it this year. Then the company hoped for a debut at this summer’s Worldwide Developer Conference.WWDC in June 2022. Now the Apple Glasses launch does look likely until late 2022 (doubtful) or 2023.
