Apple AR/VR headset tipped to get second-gen update in 2025 — but where’s the first?

A second-generation Apple AR/VR headset is predicted to launch in the first half of 2025, and it may introduce different variations including “high-end and more-affordable models.”

Despite Apple’s first mixed reality headset still being under wraps, notable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo not only believes that component suppliers will start shipping in the second half of 2024 but also Apple AR/VR headset shipments “may reach 10 million units as soon as 2025 or 2026.” This will be due to the second-generation’s “product segmentation strategy and ecosystem.”

Kuo has previously claimed that a second-generation headset would be in the works, stating that it would be lighter, faster, sleeker, and offer battery improvements. It will apparently feel much more weightless and boast a new design optimized to fit an improved battery system. He previously claimed it would arrive in 2024, but now appears to have pushed this back to 2025.
