There are only limited places and applications for AR at the moment, which will increase in the next few years. Hence, Apple glasses coming out in late 2021 or even 2022 won’t be much of a surprise. Even Facebook is working with Ray-Ban for its own version of augmented reality glasses.
Apple Glasses Steve Jobs Edition
Apple is planning to come up with special edition AR glasses which will be called “Steve Jobs Heritage Edition Glasses” as per Jon Prosser. It is expected that the design will be similar to the circular frame glasses as worn by Steve Jobs himself. It also means that Apple’s special edition glasses will cost much more than the regular products as Apple’s first goal edition of smartwatch was priced at $10,000.
Apple Glasses Augmented Reality and New Features
Apple AR glasses are rumored to be made out of plastic as per some of the leaks. The lenses will have different options available which can be adapted as per the prescriptions. Apple glasses will be equipped with the latest LIDAR sensors and would offer augmented reality in such a way that it would feel closer to real life. The leaks are also claiming that Apple glasses would be priced at $499 and hopefully the COVID-19 pandemic won’t affect the release date.
