The headset could be the hero product in a year that will reportedly be marked by a lack of significant changes to the Apple Watch, AirPods or iPad. The headset will reportedly include a “Mac-grade” M2 chip, a pair of 4K VR screens, and “an expanded array of cameras” for AR. It also runs new software called xrOS (for “Xtended Reality”).
