Be careful, rumour relayed by Phonearena but to be taken with a grain of salt, as usual. Because here, we are talking about a replacement of the iPhone by a new range, namely an augmented / virtual reality headset. This analysis is shared with us by Ming-Chi Kuo, whose track record of true predictions is impressive. The man explains that Apple, sued for providing refurbished products of poor quality, would plan the marketing of this headset for 2022. This product would use 3D images to give the impression of diving into an ecosystem that does not actually exist. We are talking here about immersion for video games, for example. Side weight, Ming-Chi Kuo speaks of 200 to 300 grams but the Cupertino company would like to go to 100-200 grams. Price level, the analyst estimates that the headset will be offered ” at the same price as a high-end iPhone “, arround1000 dollars.
But Ming-Chi Kuo doesn’t stop these incredible predictions there. In addition to the helmet, we are talking about Apple Glass for 2025, and contact lenses in the 2030-2040 range. Suffice to say that it is far, very far, and that Apple no doubt hopes that users will be ready to use such invasive technology. After all, lenses must be placed on the iris… And it is not always pleasant to apply for the first few times! These should focus much more on augmented reality. Ming-Chi Kuo returns to the supposed headset, explaining that the product from Apple, which also works on a blood glucose meter for its Apple Watch Series 7, would be the best on the market. Characteristics level, a previous report also speaks of a dozen cameras to follow the movement of the hands, 8K and/or micro-OLED screens with eye-tracking technology and capable of operating in an iPhone. The Apple Glass will, on the other hand, need an iOS smartphone.
But Ming-Chi Kuo is widely hinting that Apple Glass will be the best product. Because with their mobility, ” glasses are more focused on the mobile experience + augmented reality “.
