Mass Production of Apple's Augmented Reality-based Product by Q Report

Kuo expects Apple to start mass-producing its first set of AR glasses in late 2019 or early 2020 at the latest.

The predictions come from the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, whose projections about new Apple products have been accurate in the past. It is believed that this product will hit the mass production by the year-end, but might entirely be provided by the second quarter of next year.

Back in 2017, Bloomberg wrote that Apple was set to ship an augmented reality headset next year, which aligns with Kuo's report. The report also mentioned that the headset would run on a new customised operating system called "rOS" which would stand for "reality operating system" and would be based on iOS.

Election Commission to announce dates of poll today at 5 pm
Elections are also due by May in Jammu and Kashmir, where Governor Satya Pal Malik dissolved the Assembly in November 2018. Four states - Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Odisha - will have elections in four phases .

Designing the AR glasses to work as an iPhone accessory is also expected to allow Apple to keep the glasses slim and lightweight, rather than trying to pack in all the processing hardware into the one device.

This means the wearable will likely act as a remote display, with computing, rendering, internet connectivity and location services handled by a users' iPhone.

Will Apple be able to do what Google couldn't with Glass? Although there is still much room for improvement for Apple's first-generation head-worn AR device, we believe that this product will offer an all-new user experience and define the AR user interface. It also sounds like the iPhone will not have to be slotted into the headset for the glasses to work - 9to5Mac said that the phone will be capable of powering the headset from a user's pocket. So far, the company only has its ARKit iPhone and iPad apps to show for it. Rivals Microsoft and Magic Leap have been doing some big things with augmented reality technology, however, and we have no reason to suspect that things are any different in the hands of Apple. Last year, CNET reported that the headset will have an 8K display for each eye and will connect wirelessly to a dedicated "box".
