As Apple prepares to introduce its Mixed Reality (MR) headset in a few months, some staff are questioning if the product makes sense for the corporation.
According to The New York Times, which cited sources, some staff have left the project owing to their reservations, while others remain sceptical of the headset’s success, especially at a price of $3,000.
Because of the headset’s lack of advancement, particularly its usage of Apple’s Siri speech assistant, several staff have been sacked.
Furthermore, according to the article, there has been some internal debate regarding the future of the mixed reality headset, with some internal sceptics questioning whether the new gadget is a solution in search of a problem.
The headsets haven’t been pushed by clarity, unlike the iPod, which placed digital tunes in your pocket, and the iPhone, which paired a music player with a phone, according to the research.
Furthermore, employee and Apple management worries have some employees questioning if the headset’s rollout would be delayed.
Nevertheless, it does not appear that this will occur, as a June launch is still planned, with “headset manufacture ongoing” for the anticipated unveiling in a few months, according to the article.
Meanwhile, Apple’s second-generation AR (Augmented Reality)/MR (Mixed Reality) headset, expected to be released in 2025, would have two high-end and low-end variants.
