If you were waiting for the Apple glasses for this 2023 or even for 2024, I am sorry to tell you that the new rumors indicate that this will not happen. There has been a lot of talk about this product in the last year. In fact, we have seen renders that established how it would look, taking into account all the rumors that have been coming to the fore. We knew even the size of the battery, its duration, even the price had been rumored. But now everything indicates that until at least, 2026 or even 2027 they would not be put on the market.
Apple’s virtual reality glasses have been one of the most discussed topics in recent months by analysts and the world specialized in Apple. So much so that the rumors had already shaped what these future glasses would be like. Its characteristics would also be almost clear to us and even their price, which was going to be almost prohibitive. But now the new reports indicate that we better sit and wait because until at least the year 2026 or 2027 we will not see such a model on the market.
The reason for this delay is given by the analyst Kuo, who gives a name to the reason for this delay: metalens.
According to a report by supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the first appearance of metalens will go into mass production in 2024 for use in Face ID with the iPad Pro. If successful, the iPhone will adopt metalens for Face ID in 2025 or 2026. Ultimately, the technology would be used for augmented reality glasses that are expected to display content in the real world. Kuo says that Apple’s glasses would go into production in 2026 or 2027 at the earliest.
Then after its use in glasses, metalens would be generalized and would reach all Apple devices. So, if Kuo says so, will have to wait.
