Apple Glass – Apple’s AR glasses revealed

Details about Apple’s augmented reality glasses have been revealed and they could be set to launch as early as next year. Reputable Apple leaker Jon Prosser shared an info-dump about the AR product months before Apple have even confirmed if they exist.

Dubbed Apple Glass, they will resemble ordinary glasses and retail for a relatively affordable price of $499 plus the cost of a sight prescription, if required. The price and weight will be kept down because no CPU will be need on the unit, all the data processing will take place on a connected iPhone.

Its bespoke user interface Starboard will display images on both lenses. A LiDAR scanner is positioned on the right temple and will be used to create more accurate augmented images. Currently there is no camera on Apple Glass which would avoid the criticisms of Google’s own smartglasses which were lambasted for being able to film people unaware, earning the owners the derogatory term glassholes. It remains to be seen whether Apple will add a camera.

Apple Glass will be controlled by gestures on the camera and in front of the device and will be charged wirelessly. The prototype is plastic but presumably this could change, and Apple could offer a variety of designs.

Apple is planning for this to be a ‘One More Thing’ marquee announcement at its late 2020 press conference which it wants an audience to be in attendance however the coronavirus pandemic could means the reveal will be delayed until next year. 

Apple Glass could receive its public launch in Q4 2021 or Q1 2022.
