With regards to gadget rumors, not all the stars align all the time: for instance, we have simply heard that the long-awaited Apple augmented actuality glasses may very well be launching in 2021, proper after one other prediction put the yr of launch as 2022.
So which is it? Pushing the 2021 launch schedule is famous Apple tipster Jon Prosser, who has a monitor document nearly as good as anybody on the subject of staring into the Apple crystal ball. His sources are often among the finest within the enterprise.
Within the 2022 camp is analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, one other very well-respected determine in Apple and tech circles. That prediction is based on supply chain leaks, and we’ve got no reason to doubt the accuracy of the information.
Whichever year these AR specs do arrive, Prosser has added another couple of tidbits of information: the device is apparently “sleek as hell” and runs a dashboard user interface with the name (or codename) Starboard.
I can’t believe I’m going against Kuo on this one… but I believe he’s wrong. Apple Glasses are aimed for March-June 2021. Also. I’ve seen them. They’re sleek as hell. 👀Will be showing you soon 🤫 https://t.co/0GaOYDA5N8May 15, 2020
We have now heard so many rumors about Apple’s AR glasses that it will be a shock if improvement wasn’t already properly superior. We all know that the tech big is eager on augmented actuality, as demonstrated by the AR options in its iPads and iPhones.
Ming-Chi Kuo and different sources had beforehand specified the launch window for the AR wearable at someday this yr, 2020, although that now appears unlikely to occur (particularly with a world pandemic occurring as properly).
Different media reviews have beforehand hinted that 2023 would be the yr of the Apple AR specs, with a bulkier AR headset coming in 2022. It might be that the date retains altering as Apple makes new breakthroughs and hits new challenges with the expertise.
Apple being Apple, it will not wish to launch the system till every little thing is excellent. Keep in mind that Google Glass launched all the way in which again in 2013, although the specs by no means achieved the type of mainstream adoption that Google was presumably hoping for.
