Ahead of launch in 2023, it looks like Apple’s headset is getting a power boost thanks to Apple’s impressive M2 chip. If true, it might be more powerful than our favorite MacBook, the MacBook Air (M1, 2020).

This is according to the latest report by Mark Gurman Power On Bulletin (opens in new tab) where he said “I was told the last incarnations of the [Apple headset] run the base M2 chip along with 16 gigabytes of RAM.” Previous rumors indicated that Apple’s headset would be powered by two different chips – an M1-like processor for more intensive applications and a weaker chip for low-power uses.
