A lot has been heard and said about Apple’s under development AR glasses. But now, some fascinating information has surfaced following a leak by Jon Prosser (Front Tech).
In his exclusive video, Prosser told that the AR Glasses would be branded as “Apple Glasses”. Apple Glasses will be priced at $499, although one would have to shell out some extra bucks if corrective lenses are required. The leak confirms the rumors we have been listening since months that the stereoscopic AR headset will have to rely on the user’s iPhone for real-time data processing. He also showed the “almost confirmed” official logo of Apple Glass to the world.
Coming to its capabilities, it has been reported that the device is equipped with a LiDAR sensor that would be used for gesture recognition and scanning QR codes. Although it was known earlier from the leaked iOS 13.1 files that the UI would be called ‘Starboard,’ Prosser reiterated the same. To avoid any privacy issues, Apple has not included a camera in its product design for Apple Glass.LiDAR sensor is also expected to give head-tracking abilities to the device and will also bring in object recognition. Both these features will be similar to what Apple iPad Pro 2020 will offer.
Apple Glass was supposed to hit the markets around Q1 2021, but now due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is very likely that we will see this device be released around October 2021.And public availability of the same would be around early 2022. However, a delay is nonetheless confirmed as the company would move to patent its designs and focus on developing the concept further.
We don’t know whether the information from this leak is authentic or not? Although it has reiterated a few rumors, which we had already heard. So, it does feel like the information about Apple Glass would be correct, as reported by Prosser. Another thing we are curious about is why would Apple name its AR Glasses on lines of “Google Glasses”. Sounds strange, right? Perhaps an extra pinch of salt would help!
