The Apple Company is suspected of developing “Augmented Reality Wearable Headsets”, which will be limited to the brand name of Apple Glass. This follows after rumours began circulating on YouTube from the FPT Channel. Hosted by Jon Prosser, previous leaks from Front Page Tech have typically been correct. Under the details provided by the FPT Host, these augmented glasses will cost $499.99 without an additional prescription lens.
Illustrated models of what Apple Glass will look like were leaked. The design influences on the standard Matte White used with the majority of Apple’s products. Their logo is placed nearby the frame’s hinges, with the word Glass written beside it. Design implementations will please dedicated supported behind the iOS Ecosystem. It should be noted that Jon Prosser didn’t reveal software implementations onto Apple Glass, with that information most likely being kept internal until announcement day.
There’ve been rumours for four years regarding the concept of AR Headsets from the Apple Company. Competing manufactures like Google and HTC released their respective AR Headset years ago. Typical to the strategic business operations of Apple, their delaying the release until software & physical production has been perfected. It’s this core mentality that’s allowed for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac Computers to continuously outsell year-after-year.
July 2019 marked the 1st date that Apple’s AR Technologies could publicly be seen. They worked with the New York New Museum to develop an application for iOS. It enabled guests to use their smartphone cameras for witnessing “Digital Art Installations”. These installations weren’t located exclusively in the New Museum, but also elsewhere in Manhattan. Analysts continually speculated that similar technologies would be implemented into the inevitable AR Headset from Apple. It should be noted that the Apple Company hasn’t confirmed this leaked information.
It’ll be interesting to see which avenue Apple approached with their AR Glasses. Standard consumers didn’t adopt this technology when it was released in 2014. It’d be large-scale businesses in dozens of industries that found Google Glass to be a powerful tool. Similar measures could be enforced with Apple’s AR Glasses.
