M2 MacBook Air Could Get A WWDC Announcement But Don’t Expect An AR/VR Headset
Apple’s WWDC opening keynote is set to take place on June 6 and while hardware isn’t the main aim of the event, it could still see something new unveiled.
If that is to happen, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman doesn’t think that we should expect it to be in the form of a mixed reality headset.
In a Bloomberg article, Gurman said that while we do know that Apple’s headset is in development and nearing completion, it is unlikely that it will be announced during WWDC despite the fact that it would make sense to show it off at a developer conference to allow them to start building apps for it.
In terms of new hardware, we won’t see that iPhone 14 with the always-on screen until September. And though Apple’s upcoming mixed-reality headset is full steam ahead—underscored by the recent demonstration of the device to the company’s board—I’d be wary of expecting a full-blown presentation for developers and consumers next week.
There is good news, however. Gurman believes that there is still a chance that Apple will announce its refreshed MacBook Air, potentially packing the next Apple silicon in the form of an M2 chip. A new design is also expected, something that will surely make this the best Mac for a whole ton of people.
We don’t have to wait too much longer before we know for sure what Apple has in store — the opening keynote is now just a week away!
