A new rumor, although not very well founded warns that Apple virtual reality glasses that work with the ‘new iPod’ will arrive at WWDC 2022. The rumor is quite questionable because it comes from a dubious source. Even so, we cannot rule it out because you never know and it is better to be cautious than smart. The information suggests that Apple’s first virtual reality device will debut at WWDC in 2022 and could be tightly integrated with a “new iPod.”
The rumor was launched by Robert Scoble, through his account on the social network Twitter. He says he has learned of a virtual reality device from Apple that will debut at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference in 2022. He adds that the reason Apple will release it in the summer is because “a new iPod would be a great deal for Christmas. He says the iPod will bring “a lot of the experiences … into the headphones,” adding that they will work together. Scoble doesn’t have a strong track record when it comes to Apple rumors. In 2017, for example, it incorrectly predicted that Apple would introduce a pair of augmented reality glasses in partnership with Carl Zeiss that year.
Regarding Apple’s VR headset:
Just learned it will launch at WWDC next year because the new iPod will be a huge deal for Christmas.
The iPod introduces many of the experiences you will more fully experience by Christmas of 2022 in the headset and expect them to work together.

Even so, the rumor of the existence of virtual reality glasses has been around for a long time. Therefore, as we said before, we cannot and should not discard any information released on this subject, but we can warn or at least warn of the little relevance that it may have because it comes from where it comes from. As always happens with rumors, we will have to wait and see if they come true or at least wait to see if new information continues to emerge that discourages him. There is not much left to wait and if it is not true soon we will see evidence that shows us that we will not see something similar.
