Per an email sent to Magic Leap developers, the 2018 mixed reality headset will be officially retired December 31st, 2024, as the company focuses on updates to the Magic Leap 2 and future products. On top of no longer selling the ML1, that includes the following:
- OS Updates: Magic Leap will only address outages that impact core functionality (as determined by Magic Leap) until December 31, 2024.
- Customer Care will continue to offer Magic Leap 1 product troubleshooting assistance through December 31, 2024.
- Cloud Services: On December 31, 2024, cloud services for Magic Leap 1 will no longer be available, core functionality will reach end-of-life and the Magic Leap 1 device and apps will cease to function.
The headset was never the breakthrough product Magic Leap dreamed it might be — but it was an intriguing experiment worth remembering.
