The device could be presented in June of this year and would have its own operating system
Apple’s augmented reality and virtual reality glasses are due to be unveiled at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June this year, and more details about their features and operation are being revealed.
Despite the fact that it was rumored that this new product from the company would not be available in official stores and distributors until 2024, it is already in its final stages of development. The Cupertino company would be developing new controls and gesture sensor technology in the hands and eyes of users so that it is not necessary to purchase additional controls or accessories for the interaction of people with the device system.
In addition, due to the use of this technology, Apple’s mixed reality glasses would have a function that would allow “writing in the air.” According to Mark Gurman, a reporter specializing in Apple, the company’s idea for this new product would be that it can be used without having to link it to an iPhone and that, like a cell phone, it can download its own content.
The ability to write text using only visual commands and hand gestures is still in the process of being improved, but the glasses could display text on the headset screen as if it had been written in the air. However, this form of text entry has not yet been made entirely fluid and Gurman argues that a better way to enter content would be to link the glasses to a mobile device to take advantage of the touch screen and a more convenient keyboard. simple to use.
Another of the differences that Apple glasses will have would be that by having its own operating system, loading its own content and not requiring a link with an iPhone, it would not be necessary to configure the device with a dedicated application on the iPhone as they do. Apple Watch devices.
Apple would also be considering establishing levels of sophistication in this device as in the iPhone, which have regular versions and others that are Pro. Gurman mentions that, for the moment, the development or production of other models has not started, but It is known that there are plans for a cheaper version of the mixed reality glasses and that they could only reach official stores between the year 2024 or 2025.
Another new feature of these devices is that Siri would have the ability to generate application programming codes so that users can provide instructions and create their own platforms using their own ideas.
According to the American media The Information, while people would dedicate themselves to the creative part of the development of the application, Apple’s virtual assistant would be in charge of fulfilling user requests and would generate virtual elements that could interact with those physically present thanks to to augmented reality.
