Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes the headset will use the same 96W power adapter that is used by the MacBook ProApple has been long rumored to be working on some type of AR/VR headset, and now it seems like we might have gotten some more information about it. A report by MacRumors, states that notable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes the headset will use the same 96W power adapter that is used by the MacBook Pro. On top of this, Kuo also noted that the headset will offer “Mac-level” computing power. He said that the device will pack two processors, one 5nm chip and another 4nm chip. Both of these will be manufactured by TSMC.

Kuo also said that Apple’s headset will be two to three years ahead of competing products in terms of computing power. The headset is tipped to offer seamless switching between AR and VR modes.

Apple AR/VR could feature two chipsets

Back in December, Kuo said that Apple could release the headset at the end of 2022. He added that the headset could operate without being paired with an iPhone and will support a wide range of different apps. It could also come with Mc-level computing power, which means that it could be as powerful as a proper PC. He also stated that the headset will launch with two processors. He said, “The higher-end processor will have similar computing power as the M1 for Mac, whereas the lower-end processor will be in charge of sensor-related computing.”

While other manufacturers like HP, HTC, Acer and more have already released their take on AR/VR headsets. But they are usually quite large and bulky. Last month, Oppo unveiled its Air Glasses AR headset which was a sleeker take on AR headset design. We had a chance to check out an early version of Oppo’s Air Glasses back in 2019.
