Similar to the Apple headset in terms of specifications, it is the Meta Quest Pro VR/AR headset.

We already knew that Facebook’s parent company Meta was developing a new, high-end VR/AR headset, but two recent stories have revealed the headset’s name, Meta Quest Pro, as well as more details. The general specifications of the future Apple Headset appear to be very similar to those of the combined virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) headset.

The Go evolved into the Oculus Quest, another standalone VR headset, though a later software update made it compatible with Rift games in tethered mode. Pricing for this and the subsequent Quest 2 ranged from $299 to $499. Late last year, Meta announced that it was working on a new high-end headset under the codename Cambria. Developer Steve Moser has now found a reference to the name of the product in the iOS app.

Facebook launched its first virtual reality headset, the Oculus Rift, back in 2016. This was a mid-priced device, at $600, and had to be tethered to a PC. It was followed by an updated version, the Rift S. VR got a whole lot simpler and cheaper with Facebook’s launch of the Oculus Go in 2018, with pricing starting at $199. This completely standalone unit sold over two million units in its first year or so, and was discontinued in 2020.

The code string indicating the name of the product, which was found by developer Steve Moser and shared with Bloomberg News, references the pairing of the device to a controller. The code reads: “Pair Meta Quest Pro right controller.” The Bloomberg report makes the Quest Pro sound broadly similar to what we’ve heard to date about the upcoming Apple Headset.

said Apple has been working on augmented reality versions of core iPhone apps to use on the headset as well as new apps “that will handle tasks such as streaming immersive content and holding virtual meetings.” The first iteration of the headset is expected to be a relatively bulky and expensive device, featuring high-resolution displays, a powerful chip, and advanced sensors. Some previous reports have pitted the headset at a price well above $1000. It may be primarily targeted at enthusiasts and the developer community.

The new Meta headset will have far better graphics processing and power compared with the regular Meta Quest headset. It will also include external high-resolution cameras to simulate AR in color, eye tracking, more storage, new controllers and high-resolution displays for virtual reality. It will cost more than $1,000, according to a person with knowledge of the matter who asked not to be identified because the details aren’t yet public. The Apple Headset team was reported to have demonstrated the device to the company’s board of directors, implying that it has reached an advanced stage of development.
