Apple’s much-anticipated mixed-reality headset has been shrouded in mystery, but recently, leaked images of what appear to be its components have surfaced online. Shared by a Twitter user with a track record of accurate Apple component leaks, the images show ribbon cables that appear to contour around a user’s eyes.
These cables may be used to connect the display components to a board. Additionally, another picture shows an array of three sensors or cameras on another flexible ribbon of a similar length.
While Twitter user has a protected account, their accuracy in the past gives credibility to the authenticity of these images. The shape of the ribbon cables suggests that they are indeed designed for Apple’s upcoming mixed-reality headset.
The mixed-reality headset is expected to be revealed at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June, with a launch slated for later in the year. Although no real-world images of the device’s components have leaked online until now, the emergence of these images indicates that more leaks are likely to follow as production ramps up.
Mixed-reality technology merges virtual reality and augmented reality, enabling users to interact with both digital and physical environments simultaneously. Apple’s mixed-reality headset is expected to feature a high-resolution display and advanced eye-tracking technology that will provide a more immersive experience.
