Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst well-known for their accurate predictions on Apple products and strategies, suggested that Cupertino is unlikely to release the rumored AR/VR headset and the accompanying realityOS at WWDC next week.

The analyst shared that Apple is not ready to launch the project, and a simple introduction will open Pandora’s box of copycats. “Competitors can’t wait to see the hardware spec and OS design” and they will “happily copy Apple’s excellent ideas”, beating Cupertino in the race to put the devices on the store shelves.
If the expectations are correct, we are likely to have a traditional event where we’ll see the iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9 and the latest iteration of macOS. The event is scheduled for June 6 at 5 PM PDT.
