Apple’s highly anticipated mixed-reality headset is set to take center stage at the company’s WWDC 2023 event, according to a report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. Despite ongoing delays and issues, Apple is reportedly pressing ahead with the launch of its VR and AR headset, with a release likely in time for the holidays.
Gurman’s report contradicts previous claims from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who suggested that Apple was not “optimistic” about the launch of its headset in March, casting doubt on its appearance at WWDC. However, Gurman claims that the headset will be “the star of the show” at the event, featuring Apple’s xrOS operating system and software development kit.
One of the major focuses of the conference will reportedly be on showcasing the custom App Store and tools that developers can use to create experiences for the headset. Gurman notes that Apple is keen to have a “clear story for developers” in terms of how they can utilize the technology.
Despite the hype surrounding the headset, it has faced numerous setbacks and delays, leading many to question whether it will ever see the light of day. However, Gurman’s report suggests that Apple is committed to making the launch a success and that developers will have ample time to create content for the device before it hits store shelves.

For Apple fans eagerly anticipating the release of the company’s mixed-reality headset, WWDC 2023 is shaping up to be an event not to be missed.
