The long awaited mixed-reality headset from Apple is likely to be unveiled later this year, after the company decided to push back the reveal by two months. According to Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, Apple will debut its headset at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference in California this June. Apple reportedly made the decision to delay the headset after product testing showed issues with the hardware and software. The tech company has been working on the mixed-reality headset, which blends virtual and augmented reality, since 2015. Apple had originally intended to debut it last June.
