If you were hoping to see Apple’s AR glasses launch this year, you might be baffled because according to a report from DigiTimes( paywall ), it seems that Apple might merely begin production of the wearable during the first quarter of 2022 at the earliest.
The report goes on to add that the glass are only about to enter the second phase of the example pattern. While we have been hearing rumors about a duet of Apple AR glasses for a while, it seems that Apple has been approaching it very conservatively. Apparently the glass so far have not met Apple’s own standards and possibilities for load and battery life, which is why it is taking so long.
To be fair, we can understand why Apple is approaching this with carefulnes. Google had previously attempted to launch their own pair of smart glass, the Google Glass, but ultimately miscarried. It is unclear if it is because society wasn’t ready for such technology at that time, or if the machine simply wasn’t good enough.
It would be a very expensive lesson for Apple should it fail, so like we said, it’s not startling that they are taking their time. That tell me anything, specialist Ming-Chi Kuo did say recently that Apple could launch an AR device this year. Whether or not that is the AR glass or something else exclusively is unclear, so it’s probably best to take this with a grain of salt for now.
