Apple VR devices are going to be equipped with micro- organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays.
ET News had reported: “The parts industry expects Apple to release virtual reality (VR) headset terminal for the metaverse market as early as this year. It was understood that the performance test for VR headset production has been recently completed. Apple VR devices are equipped with micro-organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays. Apple cooperated with Taiwan’s TSMC with developing OLED displays for VR devices. Micro OLED displays do not require color filters since OLEDs are deposited directly on the chip wafer. Micro OLED is smaller, thinner, and more efficient.”
The Apple VR Report Spoke About The New M1 Chip
The report added that Apple VR will feature the M1 chip from the Mac range and will also run iOS.
There hasn’t been any other indication that Apple would run iOs on its headset, and we’d actually heard instead about Apple’s rumored RealityOS, a standalone headset operating system with its own App Store that seems like a much more plausible solution.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman previously stated Apple’s headset would have a chip faster than the M1, or that it had at least been tested with chips that are more powerful.
Micro-LED was also reported by several other outlets as an additional feature which included insider Ming-Chi Kuo.
It was reported, “In a new research note seen by iMore, Kuo notes his own previous reports into Apple’s plans to launch an augmented/mixed-reality headset towards the middle of 2021. Kuo says the device could be powered by micro-OLED displays and have several optical camera modules to power the AR/VR experience.”
