Apple might launch an AR headset next year

Apple to Release an AR Headset Next Year

9to5Mac first reported on the news.

This will enable Apple to make a glass that's slimmer and lighter than other similar headsets such as the Oculus Go.

Apple's first-generation AR glasses will apparently be an iPhone accessory, rather than a standalone product.

Requiring an iOS device to drive the glasses is a clever move.

The Taiwan-based analyst says that the Cupertino company is very excited about the product and it is bullish about it becoming a major a hit. Compared to current offerings like Microsoft's HoloLens, the Apple Glasses (or whatever) will be aimed at consumers, not businesses, and will likely be considerably less expensive.

Curry told CBS This Morning that his journey with Riley has gone full circle. Morrison also hopes a lesson is learned from her experience.

Apple has apparently been betting on augmented reality for a considerable period and it allegedly also has a separate covert unit that works on the two nascent technologies.

Rumors of Apple bringing augmented-reality glasses to market have been circulating for nearly five years now, but they've mainly been speculating based on patents and Apple hiring up a lot of talent in the AR space.

Back in 2017, Bloomberg wrote that Apple was set to ship an augmented reality headset next year, which aligns with Kuo's report. He says that the glasses will only act as a display or a projector and the real computation will take place on the iPhone. And soon, it might finally send its creation into production.

In fact, Apple started to collect AR-related tech as early as 2013, when it bought PrimeSense, the company that developed the software for the Kinect 3D depth sensor and now powers FaceID and Animoji.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has been vocal about his belief that augmented reality is the future.
