Apple is reportedly working on Mixed reality for a year from now, the company’s Mixed Reality Headset is allegedly to come later this year, but there is no such evidence from the company side to forecast the exact date of the release, while the iPhone maker Apple is readying to unite with TSMC and Unimicron.
According to the latest overview study from TFI’s Apple data miners and researcher Ming-Chi Kuo listed down numerous aspects, Apple MR has to bring the concept quickly; the report suggests that Apple’s futuristic AR/MR headset will likely acquire two CPUs fabricated of 4nm and 5nm. Ultimately, both CPUs wish to incline with ABF (Ajinomoto build-up film) surfaces. Taiwanese-based semiconductor manufacturing companies TSMC and Unimicron delicately produce the required processors and ABF substrates solely for Apple’s MR headset. At the same time, as if we look at a pioneer of MR headset Microsoft’s Holo lens announced way back in 2015 is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 Compute Platform.
Meanwhile, the leading argument reality headset maker magic leap’s devices are equipped with Nvidia processors. According to Patently Apple, Apple’s forthcoming MR/VR headset with a futuristic system will undoubtedly create a tremendous demand for up to 30 – 40 million ABF substrates by 2025. ABF substrates were pioneered by Intel back in the 90s when technology began to take off.
The Taiwan company Unimicron could sweep the semiconductor industry in the upcoming year as the company is bestowed with the world’s biggest ABF supplier. To process the demand-supply abstraction, Unimicron will find a way to incorporate with Apple in the approaching days to seek the requirements of Apple. Apple’s new expedition to virtual reality often ends up with common consent as the company’s confidential documents; as often as not, tipsters manage to undisclosed the unofficial summary. Still, this time Apple’s MR/VR headset is fitted with two ABF substrates, which is gradually higher than market unanimity.
Apple’s partnership with Unimicron is begun from Apple’s Mac series when the chipmaker jump-started the production of ABF solely for the Apple Mac series; perhaps Unimicron is akin to Apple’s commodity demands, it is more likely that Unimicron will be the one and only supplier of ABF to Apple’s new virtual reality devices. Apple MR/VR will feature a powerful 96W charger similar to MacBook Pro; this information confirms that Apple’s AR/MR demands the same level of power system like the MacBook Pro.
Apple headsets will recognize hand gestures’ details and ensure a more vivid human-machine interface. It also features eye-tracking, iris recognition, voice control, skin detection, facial expression detection, and spatial detection, and many more. According to Patently Apple, the demand from Apple and AMD will increase the range of vision of the ABF supply-demand gap from Unimicron far off 2025–2026. It is expected that Unimicron will obtain requirements from both Apple and non-Apple’s metaverse headset ABF orders by 2025.
