Apple’s mixed reality headset has been in the news for quite some time. The latest report now suggests that the rumored mixed reality (MR) headset will use iris scanning to log in and make payments. This would work like Apple’s fingerprint feature or Face ID authentication and could allow multiple people to use one headset. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted last year that the mixed reality headset could support iris recognition. The eye-tracking system would have a transmitter and receiver that could analyze eye movements.
According to a report from The Information, Apple’s virtual and augmented reality headset will use iris scanning to verify payments and sign users into their accounts. The iris recognition technology makes it easier for multiple people to use the same device and allows them to make payments quickly from the headset, just as iPhone models allow people to confirm payments with scans of their fingerprint or face, the report adds. that two employees.
The eye scanning system could work similar to Apple’s fingerprint or Face ID functionality. If the report is correct, the presence of the new eye-scanning system would be an advantage over Meta’s just-announced Quest Pro headset.
Apple will reportedly use the headset’s cameras for iris scanning. The upcoming device could be made of mesh fabrics, aluminum and glass, and is said to have a glasses-like design. Apple’s headset will reportedly be lighter than the Quest Pro. Furthermore, the report claims that the headset makes it possible to magnetically attach prescription lenses to the headset.
Last year, analysts Ming-Chi Kuo also claimed that Apple’s mixed reality headset will come with an advanced eye-tracking system that includes a transmitter and a receiver. The receiver judges the eyeball’s movement based on the change, while the transmitting end delivers different wavelengths of invisible light, according to Kuo. This would allow for a more intuitive way to use Apple Pay, he added.
Apple’s mixed reality headset has been in the news a lot lately. The device is expected to launch in early 2023. The Cupertino-based company would use its M2 processor with 16 GB of memory for the mixed reality headset. It could allow users to view certain invisible things. Users may be able to see gas leaks and Wi-Fi signals through the device.
