Apple to Unveil its Metaverse Plans with a Mixed-Reality Headset in 2023

An exciting news update about Apple. Bloomberg reports that Apple will be ready in 2023 to get into the Metaverse space with the launch of its mixed-reality headset. This is a piece of much-awaited news by the community because they’ve been talking about this since 2017. Mixed reality, if you’re wondering what it is, is a combination of the physical world and the digital world. When you wear a headset, you will see what you regularly see in the physical world, but on top of it, you can superimpose digital information, visual stuff-images, videos, etc. There’s a lot of exciting possibilities. And a company like Apple coming into the space will only increase innovation with its app developers, and it will also bring in a lot more users, heating up the competition in the space. Look forward to it. And I think there will be a lot of implications to the nonprofit, church and the ministry space for this. So watch out for more updates as we go along. It’s reported that the operating system might be called xrOS.
