Apple's next major product is 'so good', expert claims – and we could get a glimpse...


Apple's next major product is mere weeks away from launching – and an early review suggests it will live up to the hype.

Palmer Luckey, the 30-year-old American entrepreneur and founder of the Oculus VR platform, appears to have tried the device. 

Luckey, who sold his firm Oculus to Meta for $3 billion (£2.4 billion) in 2014 at the age of 21, simply said in a tweet on Sunday: 'The Apple headset is so good.' 

Official details about Apple's device are scarce, but it's believed it will display notifications, messages, directions and more in front of the wearer's eyes

It's not known how or where he got to try the device, although Luckey is a big name in the VR industry. 

MailOnline has contacted the entrepreneur for more information. 

Luckey, who began Oculus when he was just 15, is a video game enthusiast and owner of a defence company called Anduril Industries, founded in 2017. 

More recently, he devised a headset called NerveGear that instantly 'destroys the brain' of the user when they die in a virtual game. 

Thankfully, Apple's new headset – which is expected to be called 'Reality Pro' and released later this year – will not be quite as deadly. 

Publicly, Apple has made no acknowledgement of the upcoming device, but its existence is an open secret within the tech industry. 

A US leaker called Mark Gurman, who has been drip-feeding information about it in his weekly newsletter for months, says it could 'replace the iPhone'.
