Apple Glass, Apple’s elusive AR lenses project, is coming, and we’re starting to learn a lot more about what the futuristic, first-generation wearable could look like.
When we first heard word of “Apple Glasses,” rumors suggested the lenses would launch this year. But with Apple’s 2020 product line fully fleshed out with the likes of the iPhone 12, Apple Watch 6 and AirPods Studio.
One reliable analyst said Apple Glass could come as soon as next year. While another longtime source for Apple product releases believes the release won’t happen until 2022. Either way, the project is definitely in the works.
Apple Glass is expected to run on Starboard, a proprietary operating system uncovered in the final version of iOS 13. The augmented reality framework shows up multiple times in code and text documents. This means that Apple is likely testing activation and application.
Apple Glasses price
According to Prosser the Apple Glasses are currently priced at $499, plus prescription fees. Now that may seem low, especially compared to competing augmented reality headsets like the Microsoft Hololens 2.
