Apple’s long-awaited augmented reality (AR) glasses could launch by the end of 2022.
What is augmented reality🤷♀️ Ar is the technology that imposes a computer-generated image on a user’s view of the real world. AR is different from virtual reality (VR) in that VR is a full-on computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional image or environment.
More details🧐 Apple’s computerized glasses will use the same processor, the M1 chip, as Mac computers. The tech giant plans to position the glasses as an iPhone accessory, not a replacement for the iPhone.
Why is this important🤔 The decision to classify it as an accessory is part of Apple’s strategy to sell wearable accessories like AirPods & Apple Watches tied to its star product, the iPhone.
