Apple Glasses: Release Date, Price, Features and Leaks
Are rumors becoming facts? The drumbeats of an Apple augmented reality product seem to be getting louder and this update from Kate Kozuch at Tom’s Guide shares some of the latest insider information. The truth is that once Apple does release a product it will give it immediate and widespread credibility. They may not even use the term “augmented reality” as that sounds techy. The Apple name will at least get consumers to buy and try and we may see lots of fashionable eyewear displaying contextual information in the near future.

Apple Glass, Apple’s elusive AR lenses project, is coming whether we like it or not, and we’re beginning to see what the futuristic, first-generation wearable could look like.
When we first heard word of “Apple Glasses,” rumors suggested the lenses would launch this year. But with Apple’s 2020 product line fully fleshed out with the likes of the iPhone 12, Apple Watch 6 and AirPods Studio, the near future Apple augmented reality glasses looked blurry.
One reliable analyst said Apple Glass could come as soon as next year, while another longtime source for Apple product releases believes the release won’t happen until 2022. Either way, the project is definitely in the works.
Apple Glass is expected to run on Starboard, a proprietary operating system uncovered in the final version of iOS 13. The augmented reality framework shows up multiple times in code and text documents, meaning Apple is likely testing activation and application.
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 Glass as soon as then. The company allegedly planned to unveil the lenses as a “one more thing” announcement at its annual fall keynote, but might wait due to global tech delays.
Here’s everything else we know about Apple Glass, including the potential release date, price, design and specs.
