According to a report, Apple's launch of a mixed-reality headset might be extended until 2023

According to a news release on Friday, Bloomberg is considering extending its launch by at least a few months.

Apple was planning to unveil the headset at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference in June and then put it on sale later in the year, according to Bloomberg, citing people it claimed were familiar with the situation. But development challenges relating to overheating, cameras, and software have made it difficult to follow those goals, according to the sources.

According to sources, delays might push the announcement to the end of this year or later, putting the product on the shelves by 2023. Apple declined to comment immediately.

According to other Bloomberg sources, the headset is rumored to be a high-end device that incorporates virtual and virtual reality.

The aim is to create a product with more appeal than existing augmented reality goggles, which allow users to superimpose data and imagery on top of real-world views. Past AR headsets made by other companies have failed to gain traction with consumers. VR headsets, which provide an immersive experience, have been more successful but still haven't caught on much beyond a core group of gamers.
