Apple has long been rumoured to be working on an AR/VR or mixed-reality headset, though it looks like we may not be seeing it as early as first thought. According to reliable tipster Ming-Chi Kuo, the tech giant is further delaying the headset after facing some software issues. 

Taking to Twitter, Kuo claimed that Apple originally planned to unveil the AR/VR headset during its WWDC event. However, given the persisting bugs with the software, this has become very unlikely. Instead, Kuo said that Apple will be announcing the headset alongside the iPhone 15 series in September 2023. 

Previously, another tipster, Mark Gurman said that the mixed-reality headset will run on a new Operating System (OS) called xrOS. The headset is touted to be similar to Microsoft HoloLens, meaning that it will be capable of both AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality).

xrOS itself is an abbreviation of extended reality operating system, thus alluding to the device supporting both AR and VR. Of course, do take this information with a grain of salt as nothing is confirmed as of yet.
