Apple, Sony, and Meta are likely to release key HMD devices in the year 2022. This is a head-mounted display (HMD), and there’s a good chance it’ll be the next big thing in consumer electronics. Like the original Apple Watch, the first Apple HMD is likely to be limited in usefulness until it’s coupled with an iPhone.
Apple, Sony, and Meta are all slated to release key HMD devices in the year 2022. This is a head-mounted display (HMD), and there’s a good chance it’ll be the next big thing. The first Apple HMD, like the first Apple Watch, will very certainly only work when coupled with an iPhone.
The metaverse is the environment in which all content is held and interacted with via smart devices in the case of these HMD gadgets. HMD devices allow users to access content that is only available in virtual reality, is augmented by our physical world, or transfers fluidly across realms.
WiFi 6/6E, according to Kuo, will be a significant component for the debut of HMD devices in 2022. Sony will likely release an HMD in the second quarter of 2022, with Meta following in the second half of the year and Apple following in the fourth quarter. Each of these headsets will almost certainly have WiFi 6 or newer connectivity.
These headsets will keep connected to the internet, smartphones, wearable gadgets, and headset-to-headset using this enhanced connectivity. Consistent connectivity is critical for the future of this industry since it allows users to interact with the material in a friendly, always-available manner.
Apple’s first head-mounted display gadget is unlikely to be cheap. Users may need an iPhone to unlock full capability, and a new iPhone with WiFi 6E may be required. In the year 2022, the user would require a new iPhone and a new HMD. A pair of these devices will almost probably set you back a fair coin.
Meta has Oculus – or had Oculus until it was revealed that the brand would be disbanded soon, but the product would be kept under the Meta brand. Their Project, Cambria VR/AR headset, will certainly lead the charge in the next year or two.
Sony will be a bit of a wild card in this game. For years, they’ve been showing us headsets without actually bringing the technology to a point where it’s suitable for the average user. Consider the firm devoting as much work into developing and advertising an HMD in 2022 as they do with developing and promoting a gadget like the PlayStation 5, and their future becomes a little clearer.
