Kuo: Apple's Headset Coming End of 2022, Will Feature 'Pancake' Lenses
Apple's widely-rumored AR/VR headset is coming at the end of 2022, with shipments to ramp up in the first quarter of 2023, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
In a research note with TF International Securities, obtained by MacRumors, Kuo said Apple's headset will feature two "3P pancake lenses," which have a folded design that allows light to reflect back and forth between the display and lenses. This design can allow Apple to release a more compact and lightweight headset.
The Information last year shared the above render of Apple's supposed headset based on a "late-stage prototype" that it viewed. The report claimed the headset will have a curved visor with a soft mesh material, swappable headbands, and more.
Earlier today, display industry consultant Ross Young claimed Apple's headset will be equipped with three displays.

“So, we can expect Apple to sell swappable headbands like how they sell for Apple Watches. Different types, colors, and patterns.”
Can you imagine how expensive it's going to be to repair the headset if one of the pancake cameras gets broken? Apple care + is going to be a must-have. ?
