According to Jon Prosser, Apple Glass Maybe announced in Q4 2019 / Q1 2020 and get released a year later.
“Apple to start manufacturing AR headset in Q4 2019 / Q2 2020, relies on the iPhone for rendering and connectivity” Kuo.
What will Apple AR glasses cost?
That’s a tough question, According to Prosser, the Apple Glasses are currently priced at $499, plus prescription fees as there’s no real precedent for this sort of thing yet. The only rumor on that subject so far claims $499 (roughly £410 / AU$765).
Apple Glass features: What they’ll do
The Apple AR Glasses will bring information from your phone to your face. Specifically, the eyewear is expected to synchronize with a wearer’s iPhone to display things such as texts, emails, maps, and games over the user’s field of vision.
Apple also has plans for third-party apps and is considering a dedicated app store, similar to how you get apps for the Apple TV and Apple Watch.
Apple Glasses design
The most current Apple Glass prototype reportedly looks like an “un-intimidating” pair of plastic glasses, while marketing materials suggest a Clark Kent design.
It has a LiDAR scanner on the right temple, but no other cameras for privacy reasons (although that could change.) The glasses also come with a plastic stand with wireless chargers.
Being an accessory to the iPhone will have implications on the Apple Glass design. Though the glasses won’t be as lightweight as your Ray-Ban aviators, they could be light enough and comfortable enough to work as everyday glasses.
Apple Glass specs
- Wi-Fi connection:
If the iPhone has to process all the video captured by the glasses cameras and send back the 3D imagery to the glasses at a very high frame per second rate (a bare minimum of 60Hz, with a 120Hz refresh being optimal).
As for battery life, we can also expect a minimum of three hours if Apple wants to be competitive although we can assume that people will be more forgiving about this especially if Apple provides with some kind of wireless charging glasses case that can extend its operative time through the day like with the Apple AirPods.
- Have a LiDAR scanner.
- Come with a Dual glass display.
- It depends on your iPhone for all computational processing and app installation.
