In the early ’60s, they became known as “granny glasses. In 1967, they were called” Lennon glasses “after the late Beatle began wearing them. In 1998, Steve Jobs changed his glasses to Lunor Ideal in 380, a Now, this style of glasses is known as “Steve Jobs Glasses” and recently leaked information suggests that Apple is planning to offer a special “Steve Jobs Heritage Edition” of its AR-powered Apple Glass.
Apple is reportedly releasing a mixed reality headset next year, followed by Apple Glass in 2022 or 2023
This comes from tipster Jon Prosser (via AppleInsider) that has leaked information about the device. Earlier this month he said so Apple Glass would look like a pair of traditional glasses with a LiDar scanner in the right temple. This is the time-of-flight sensor used on the latest iPad Pro models and used to produce more accurate depth measurements for AR, portraits and other features based on these measurements. Prosser also said the laptop will have no additional cameras. This is probably a good decision on Apple’s part, because one of the reasons Google Glass failed as a consumer product was its “scary factor”. Some bars denied access to patrons carrying the device due to the possibility that users were taking pictures of customers without probationers knowing it. thus, the term “Glasshole” was created.
Tipster Jon Prosser says Apple is working on a special pair of Apple Glass, similar to Steve Jobs’ borderless round glasses
Some of the information that Prosser leaked down the tail with older reports on the device. Back in 2016, there was a report that Apple was working on a path to wirelessly pairs smart glasses with the iPhone so the handset can handle the heavy duty required. This is similar to how the Apple Watch was handled until series 3 watches came along. So even though Apple Glass users need their iPhone nearby to run their AR glasses, subsequent models may fall short of this requirement.
While Prosser says Apple Glass will start at $ 499 and support 5G, the “Steve Jobs Heritage Edition” would cost more. Tipster says, “They’re also working on a prototype, a Steve Jobs Heritage Edition that looks like” how we had an Apple Watch Edition, like the ridiculous $ 10,000 gold when it first came out. “Now Prosser is not saying that a” Steve Jobs Heritage Edition “of Apple Glass will be $ 10,000, just that it will be very expensive.
Given the frameless look of Jobs ’glasses and the thin arms, there is a legitimate question of where the components would go without showing. Prosser says, “So the transparent lenses. So I have no idea how it actually works, but I know traditionally – I say traditionally – with current versions of AR glasses or something like that, is projected into a little thing corner of a lens.These are both lenses have screens, they are integrated screens that show you information. ”The technology to pull such a design could have been acquired by Apple back in 2018 when it purchased Akonia Holographics. The company produces displays for AR glasses.
Of course, not everyone believes that a “Steve Jobs Heritage Edition” is being developed. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says the rumor is “fiction.” He also noticed
that there is some confusion because next year Apple plans to announce a device known internally at Apple as “N301.” This would be a mixed reality (VR / AR) headset. “N421” would be unveiled in 2022 or 2023, and this is the AR device we’ve referred to as Apple Glass. This information actually fits perfectly with a report released back in 2019 by, appropriately enough, The information
. Back then, the latter said the “N301” looks like a slimmer version of the Oculus Quest VR headset.
Would Apple ever risk the reputation of its iconic co-founder by putting its name on one of its products? It is highly unlikely and would no doubt be considered a money-grabbing trick by Apple.
