In March this year, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple could start manufacturing its first augmented reality glasses as early as 2019. Now, it looks like the forecast will come close to becoming a reality.
According to a recent report released by Bloomberg, the intention is for the headset to serve as an accessory for the iPhone. The Cupertino giant’s plans would include launching the product next year (2020).
If the idea of creating augmented reality glasses really materializes, the product should be the first of the brand to become available, after the confirmed departure of the company’s designer Jony Ive.
I’ve had his predicament in the company since the launch of Apple Watch (2015) when he even mentioned that he was tired. The announcement of his departure was only disclosed on Thursday (27).
“It’s been a long time. He’s been at Apple for over 25 years and it’s a really exhausting job. It’s been an extremely tense 25 year old for him at Apple and there is a time for everyone to slow down. “
Focus on life change
The new design group from Apple would already be working on the project for the AR glasses. The company’s intention would be to create a product that can change the daily lives of its users.
To complete, “Apple” would now look for suppliers and production methods for its future accessory.
