This Apple Headset Concept Looks Amazing [PICS]
Based on the design language of Apple’s AirPods Max headphones, product designer @Hanstsaiz has shared a great-looking concept for the much-awaited Apple mixed reality headset.
Apple has reportedly been planning to unveil the long-rumoured headset at the forthcoming annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) on June 5th.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has also been pushing for the company to launch the product. However, despite having internal demos, staff have objected to launching the headset prematurely.
The headset is expected to feature multiple 4K OLED displays, over a dozen camera modules, eye-tracking, and more. Reports suggest Apple’s first mixed reality headset may carry a hefty price tag of $3,000 USD.
