From the past few years, we have been hearing a lot about Apple AR Glasses, but now, we have the biggest leak of the product that reveals almost every important thing that we need to know about Apple AR Glasses.
This leak comes from one of the well-known leakster Jon Prosser who shared this leak related to Apple Glasses on his Front Page Tech YouTube show. Starting from the beginning, the upcoming AR Glasses from Apple will be launched as “Apple Glass” as its marketing name.
As for its announcement, it was scheduled to launch alongside the iPhone 12 – which itself will be delayed from September to October due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the world, as mentioned by Prosser.
Prosser claims that Apple wants its Apple Glass to be one of its famous “one more thing” announcements at the event, however, the company also wants to launch the glasses at a major event where the media is present. Since we’re still fighting from the virus and promoting social distancing, the announcement of Apple Glass could push back the announcement to a March 2021 event, instead of unveiling at iPhone 12 launch.
In addition to that, Prosser claims that it won’t hit stores until at least the final quarter of 2021, and maybe not until early 2022. So there’s still a long wait ahead if this information is accurate.
Apart from this, Prosser claims that the upcoming Apple Glass will feature lenses in both the display that can be interacted with using gestures. Similar to Apple Watch, it will also rely on a paired iPhone. Furthermore, he claims that an early prototype of Apple Glass featured LiDAR (light detection and ranging) scanner and wireless charging. As for the price, it is expected to retail at $499 (approx £410 / AU$765).
Apple is also rumored to be working on a more traditional AR/VR headset that resembles Facebook’s Oculus Quest, with previous reports suggesting that the headset will be released prior to the glasses.
