Apple’s rumored AR glasses could launch in 2022 at the earliest

Apple’s AR glasses could redefine wearable computing Apple AR Glasses will launch, When we first learned of Apple Glasses, rumors suggested the lenses would launch in 2020 but then with Apple's 2020 product line out with the likes of the Apple I Phone 12, Apple Watch Series 6 and the famous Airpods Studio, there is a small chance of Apple AR glasses coming anytime relatively soon. An analyst said Apple Glasses could come as soon as 2021.

What do we know though about Apple AR glasses? We know that Tim Cook is a big fan of augmented reality, which he considers social and inclusive compared to virtual reality. At WWDC 2020 in June, the company is expected to update the world on its AR efforts, and perhaps we'll catch a glimpse of Apple Glasses. According to TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo — perhaps the most reputable and reliable Apple expert — Apple Glasses won't be ready to ship until 2022 "at the earliest." Kuo previously said Apple Glasses are set for 2020 launch, but has amended the timeline

Meanwhile, Jon Prosser here says Apple Glasses could come sooner than we thought. The leaker believes the launch is aimed for "March-June 2021." So what will be the features of the Apple glasses many of us would wonder? According to a Bloomberg report, the Apple AR Glasses will bring information from your phone to your face and also has plans for third-party apps, and is considering a dedicated app store, similar to how you get apps for the Apple TV and Apple Watch. Then in terms of specs we can only judge from the current tech and base on it since there’s no known specs about the Apple Glasses yet so it would be spectacular to expect the Apple Glasses to connect directly to the iPhone on a dedicated Wi-Fi connection to a heads-up display that shows 2D floating notifications or maps, like Google Glasses. And lastly we would want them to have a lasting battery of at least 8 hours of battery life and AR in full 3D
