All the pieces are in place for Apple to launch its own AR glasses
Earlier this week, a patent detailing augmented reality technologies for the iPhone also described AR glasses that would be able to display AR content. The accessory would even allow users to interact with the digital layer of information shown on the glasses by hand gestures that would be perceived by the camera.
I wrote at the time that AR glasses made by Apple might be the kind of device that would “kill” the iPhone. By killing the iPhone, I meant that smart glasses like the ones in the patent could significantly extend the capabilities of the iPhone, which won’t disappear. Instead, it may stay buried in our pockets for longer periods of time.
