In the previous years, news dispersed informing people that Apple was designing superior glasses called Apple Glasses and people were anxiously waiting for the release of that new conception.
In 2019 information leaked concerning some demo features of the AR glasses showing out some specific designs.
The prototype looks just like an ordinary pair of glasses. These prototypes there are designed in black and white plastic.
The display or set to be visible to the wearer and completely invisible to any outside viewers.
House tech of the glasses is fitted in the frame of the glasses, but the notable feature is the LiDAR sensor which is at the top right-hand side of the glasses ( LiDAH system that can 3D map the environment by calculating the distance from the point to point by firing laser beams, the timing how quickly they return. LiDAH system fires a train of laser pulses at different parts of a scene over a short period).
LiDAH will also take care of things like reading arm gestures and translating QR codes into dimensional codes. In the same line, Apple glass will not have a camera or any photographic features.
The glasses there are expected to have lenses that adjust to ambient. So, Apple glasses would be able to adjust the lenses as per bright or night time scenarios.
The Apple glasses, they charge using a designated charging stand or the use of a wireless charging case.
The glasses are not expected to have any sound output system i.e built-in speakers. Instead, there will use In air earphones as the audio output system. This is the only alternative to the product because the shape of the glasses will remain in form of ordinary glasses and also avoid the unnecessary weight of the product.
All of the data processing is set to take place on an iPhone. This is so to reduce the physical full print on the glasses. The glasses will be able to perform highly on new model iPhones like the12 series. However, the glass can also connect to older iPhone models but with limited accessibility. The system inside is the basic iOS system that we all see in Apple watches and iPhones
N.B: physical interactions are replaced with hand gestures and voice command.
The glasses are set to retail at a reasonable price of $499 excluding the of optional prescription lances.
In conclusion, Apple has little to say about Apple glasses as a whole, now there are only speculations about the release date, therefore the date is to be expected. However, we may have the official release of apple glasses from the Apple Company early this year 2021.
