Mass Production of Apple's Augmented Reality-based Product by Q2 of 2020

Well, that might be not the case anymore in the future - a new report from the trusted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that Apple is working on manufacturing an AR headset or an AR glass by the end of this year. It is believed that this product will hit the mass production by the year-end, but might entirely be provided by the second quarter of next year.

A top Apple analyst has hinted at the possibility that the iPhone maker might come out with an augmented reality (AR) headset much sooner than expected.

Apple doesn't plan to sell the device that relies on the iPhone's screen to display images, however, and is using it only to test AR apps, the report said. The iPhone would do much of the computation, wireless networking, and global positioning, while the AR glasses would only process their fine position/orientation and display.

The start of 2020 might well be the most exciting in years from an Apple fan's perspective. However, all rumours died out sooner or later, but it looks like we will be able to see an AR headset from Apple soon. Industry watchers believe Apple's AR glasses will likely play a key role in the adoption of technology among mainstream users and courage adoption. However, both headsets from Microsoft and Magic Leap are expensive.

Met Office issues snow and ice warning for north

From a patent filing by Apple in 2008. Most rumors and inside reports have called for a less-than-ambitious Apple approach in this fledgling market, and Kuo is once again supporting the iPhone-connected theory.

The tech giant has filed a new patent that gives a glimpse into what it may be developing behind closed doors, according to Patently Apple. Each lens will reportedly have an 8K display- which puts the best TVs today to shame. He correctly predicted that Apple would release a 5.8-inch iPhone with an OLED display in 2017, for example, which turned out to be the iPhone X. He was also right when he said Apple would release a new 4-inch iPhone in 2016 instead of 2015, as the company did when it debuted the iPhone SE. With this type of progress, Apple would be launching a device revolutionized and innovated, something we asked the company after the latest releases.

We know that Apple boss Tim Cook is a big fan of augmented reality, and it is of course one of the features you can play around with on recent versions of iOS.
