Apple is in talks with Walt Disney and about half a dozen media partners to develop virtual reality (VR) content for its mixed reality headset, Bloomberg News reported Monday.

Developed with Sony Group Corp, the headset will have two ultra-high-resolution displays to handle the VR aspects and a collection of external cameras to enable an augmented reality “pass-through mode”, the report said.

It added that the tech giant was working to update its own Apple TV+ material to work with the headset.

The iPhone maker’s MR headset is set to launch in this year’s spring event and will cost around $3,000, according to the report.

MacDailyNews Take: Compelling content will obviously be key, especially for sales of subsequent, more affordable Apple headsets to follow.
