Apple’s first-ever AR headset to go into production later this year

The purported AR glasses will act only as a display while the core tasks of computing rendering internet connectivity and location services will be handled by the iPhone

Kuo expects Apple's first iteration of AR Glasses to be ready by mid-2020 and he says it will be sold as an iPhone accessory. iPhone will presumably do most of the heavy lifting, handling all the processing, while the AR glasses will just act as a display, relaying all the necessary information.

Rumors of Apple bringing augmented-reality glasses to market have been circulating for nearly five years now, but they've mainly been speculating based on patents and Apple hiring up a lot of talent in the AR space.

Veteran analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple might begin mass producing its long-rumored AR headset as early as the end of 2019. He believes that at the very latest, they will start being mass produced in the second quarter of 2020.

There have been rumblings of Apple working on some sort of augmented reality headset for months, and that's something that has gained more traction as more advanced AR features have been added to iPhones and iPads. They'd be used primarily as a display while off-loading computing, networking, and Global Positioning System location to a users iPhone. Apple should therefore be able to price this first-gen product substantially lower than the defunct Google Glass and business-oriented Microsoft HoloLens 2, the latter of which costs a whopping $3,500. Using the same tech and small IR cameras, Apple's glasses could track your hands to interact with virtual objects. Magic Leap's wearable computing package consists of a circular computer and a battery pack meant to be worn on the body, while a cable connects those components to pair of smart goggles.

Greenberg said Kelly will be back in court Wednesday in the child support case. Kelly needed to be released from a Chicago jail . Kelly " documentary series aired in January.

A patent application published last month suggests that Apple is at least considering how smartphones and headsets can work together to run AR apps because it includes an illustration of a person wearing a headset while manipulating a smartphone. Each lens will reportedly have an 8K display- which puts the best TVs today to shame.

Apple typically takes its sweet time to enter new product categories, but the wait may soon be over.

The next Apple smartphone will also likely bend the knee to augmented reality in ways not yet seen in the iPhone. Orrin Hatch more than two years ago.
