Apple’s AR headsets and smart glasses are coming next year; to arrive in the first half of 2020, top analyst says
The rumors about Apple augmented reality(AR) glasses have been swirling around for months. Now, according to a translation of a research note by TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will launch an augmented reality (AR) headset, plus new MacBooks, new iPad Pros and the iPhone SE2 in the second quarter of next year.
The note doesn’t mention a 16-inch MacBook Pro or new MacBook Air, which Kuo has previously said will launch in October. Kuo said Apple is teaming with third-party brands for its AR glasses.
A rough Google translation from the site MyDrivers covers the note, which was published in Chinese and mostly about Apple’s upcoming product launch, indicated that AR helmet will also be released. “He also pointed out in the report that Apple will launch AR products (head-mounted AR devices will be mass-produced as soon as 4Q19), and it is expected that Apple will cooperate with third-party brands to launch AR helmets next year,” the site said.
As of note, Kuo’s notes are often released in Chinese first.
