Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple is to begin production of its Augmented Reality headset before the end of this year, and launch it in the second quarter of 2020.
A new report seen by AppleInsider from generally well-informed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple is shortly to begin mass producing its AR Glasses, or Augmented Reality headset. The devices are said to commence manufacturing before the end of 2019, and Kuo says that they will be launched in the second calendar quarter of 2020.
Kuo believes that Apple will also then partner with unnamed third-party firms to produce what he refers to as AR helmets during 2020.
Kuo believes that the AR glasses will act as an iPhone accessory in the way the original Apple Watch did. That would mean the iPhone providing much of the processing power, and allowing the glasses to avoid cumbersome circuitry.
