Apple AR Headset Is Expected To Hit The Market By Mid-2020

The detailed predictions came from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Apple may soon launch its long-rumored AR glasses as early as next year as hinted by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The mass production of the headset is reportedly planned to start at the end of 2019 before hitting the market in mid-2020.

Prior to this new information, Kuo once said in March that those AR glasses would arrive in 2020, too. Now the timeline becomes more precise and more detailed for those who are waiting for the gadget. It wasn’t until Feb 2015 for Apple to be awarded a patent of AR headset, and the company acquired an AR company named Metaio in the same year. Since then, there has been a lot of rumors flying around. However, in October 2017, Tim Cook said Apple’s AR headset won’t be coming soon, citing a fact that the tech to do them properly just wasn’t there.

Rumors have been springing up since Apple first announced its plan of building AR glasses a few years ago.

In the meantime, we got just a few technical details related to the AR headset. As per Kuo, it won’t come as a standalone product but an accompanying gadget of the iPhone. In addition, he also claimed that it will likely take the role of a display instead of an all-around headset as you expected. As such, all the computing tasks will thus be handled to the iPhone. This could be a good point when it comes to a lightweight and slim design.

Kuo added that Apple will launch the headset with help from third-party brands. Amongst potential names, Changying Precision will reportedly be the main chassis supplier.
