Apple’s New Device “Apple Glass” will it turn out be a must have device?
Apple inc has been rumored to have been working on a pair of smart glasses for quite a long time. There have been speculations over time.
However details about the augmented reality glasses were recently leaked by Jon Prosser a tipster who has a reputation for providing Apple-related leaks in the past. In his youtube video, he stated that the glasses will be called Apple Glass and can be paired (connected) with an iPhone and be controlled by gestures on and in front of the glasses. Jon Prosser also revealed that he saw a video of a prototype pair. Both lenses will reportedly have displays and the Apple Glass is meant to look similar to a typical pair of glasses and likely won’t have a camera as one of its features. Prosser also speculates that the Apple Glass will cost $499 (plus prescription).
“He claims that the glasses will contain a LiDar scanner, like the one found inside the latest iPad Pro. Both lenses will be able to display information through an interface called Starboard, and will be controllable via gestures and by tapping the frame.
Prosser also stated that Apple is planning on announcing the Apple Glass during an event this year but due to the current Covid-19 Pandemic that might not happen soon. He also added that the announcement may be pushed to March 2021. He also speculated that the Apple glass is expected to be available is expected between Q4 2021 and Q1 2022.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has indicated that the company is preparing for a big future in augmented reality, saying that the technology is potentially as important as the iPhone.
With a thorough consideration Apple Glass maybe a new device you definitely don’t need but apparently no one can ascertain that yet.
It’s been a few years since Apple last released something truly brand new. Sure, we’ve seen tons of updated phones, tablets, watches and more, Apple could be gearing up to announce an entirely new gadget as soon as this year. But we can’t help but wonder if it’s something people will actually want.
But hey, we could be proved wrong. The appearance of Apple’s AirPods was mercilessly mocked on release, but these days they’re practically a fashion accessory. Apple Glass could well become the most popular specs on the street. We might not have to wait long to find out – Prosser says Apple Glass may arrive in 2021, and could even be announced at the end of this year.
