Yesterday marked another milestone in the technology industry, as the world witnessed the beginning of Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference – the WWDC 2022.

As we reported late last month, Tianfeng International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed Apple would not release AR/MR headset and reality system during the 2022 WWDC event. According to him, the mass production of the AR/MR headset will take Apple so many times.
He further pointed out that Apple’s global competitors are eagerly awaiting the hardware specifications and operating system design of Apple’s AR/MR headset. Therefore, if Apple announces an AR/MR headset and its operating system at WWDC, competitors would instantly start copycat projects and gleefully imitate Apple’s outstanding ideas, preempting Apple’s products from hitting the market in 2023.
However, in a new analysis shared via its Twitter handle, the Tianfeng International Securities analyst explains why Apple’s AR/MR headset and reality system shipping date will be postponed to the second quarter of 2023. He highlighted several reasons, which include the recent Shanghai lockdown, which interrupted the development.
