Not only a mixed reality viewer, but also many other products will see the light this year. One of them will be the iPhone 15, iPhone 15‌ Plus, ‌iPhone 15‌ Pro e ‌iPhone 15‌ Pro Max. In 2023, all new iPhones should support Dynamic Island which is limited to iPhone 14 Pro models as of now.

It appears that Apple is moving away from Lightning and is ready to adopt instead USB-C, the same connector already used for Mac and iPad. USB-C will enable universal charging across most of Apple’s range of devices. On some models it may allow for faster charging speeds.
