Another day brings another Apple leak, this time targeting the company’s long-rumored augmented reality glasses. Front Page Tech host and leaker Jon Prosser has in turn revealed a number of specifics surrounding the upcoming eyewear.
According to Prosser, Apple’s AR glasses will be called “Apple Glass,” and they will start at a price of $499. Prescription lenses will be optional at an extra cost. The glasses, which will pair to the iPhone, are expected to feature a display in each lens that you can interact with using a series of gestures.
The leak suggests Apple is eyeing a late 2021 or early 2022 release for the glasses, which the company allegedly intended to reveal during its iPhone event in the fall. Now, however, the announcement could very well be delayed until March of 2021.
Apple is also reportedly working on an AR/VR headset rivaling that of Facebook’s Oculus Quest. The headset is rumored to release prior to Apple Glass.
Furthermore, Prosser indicates that this year’s iPhone event could be pushed from September to October due to the coronavirus pandemic. This may also force Apple to release select iPhone models in October.
