Apple Inc. revealed on Monday that its software would be more thoroughly integrated into the instrument cluster on the dashboard of automobiles that will begin delivering next year, while analysts and developers are waiting for any indications about how a future mixed-reality headgear may operate.
Apple also stated that its new Macbook Air laptop was “fully rebuilt” around its new M2 silicon processor, which is 35 percent quicker than the previous M1 chip, according to the company.
The weight of the new laptop will be 2.7 pounds (1.2 kg).
Apple unveiled an updated version of its Car Play software at its annual software developer conference.
The new software will time power the instrument cluster on a car’s dashboard showing speed, directions, and gas mileage.
Apple also added an edit button to iMessage for sent messages, beating Twitter to a long-requested feature.
The Apple Store was offline on Monday morning, a move that in the past has been followed by new products being added to the site.
Such a device would be Apple’s first entry into a new category of computing devices since the Apple Watch was shipped in 2015.
It would put it in direct competition with Meta, which has disclosed plans for a mixed-reality headset code-named “Cambria”.
