Apple will unveil iPhone 11 next week alongside the new Apple Watch models. They are not the only products that the bitten apple is developing, however.
Some could be introduced in a while, and I'm not referring to the new 2019 iPad Pro models that will be announced in October, but to a new series of AR glasses. Yes, the notorious Apple Glasses augmented reality devices.
Remember the Apple Glasses?
For a while the agencies (and competitors) from all over the world panicked, appearing here and there in various rumors about the Cupertino house. Their launch was scheduled in early 2020 when the tracks on the radar were lost. Since then, the augmented reality features of Apple have been introduced and tested on an increasingly regular basis. The test platform is obviously the flagship operating system, that prodigal iOS of (small, sometimes tiny) constant innovations.
In short, the iOs13 is an operating system that would easily handle the management of a device such as Apple Glasses. The device is initially intended to work in necessary pairing with an iPhone and not yet able to work alone (a bit like the first versions of Apple Watch).
A few days after the release of the final version of iOS 13, the MacRumors portal has inspected a developer version of the operating system. There he came across a small app STARTester able to switch the operating system in headset mode, "probably to replicate the functionality of a helmet in augmented reality, or in any case a wearable device". The test app contains two types of configurations, "worn" and "held", which suggests that it is an accessory that can be put on and taken off. Glasses!
