Neither product has been announced by Apple, but the two headsets were reportedly detailed to a packed room of Apple employees in a secret October meeting at Apple's Cupertino, California, headquarters.

According to people who attended the meeting cited in The Information's report, Apple detailed the two devices as such:

  • The first device, expected in 2022, is said to currently resemble the Oculus Quest virtual reality headset, with a high-resolution display, cameras mounted on the outside, and the ability to map its surroundings.
  • The second device, expected in 2023, is more akin to sunglasses, with a thick frame to house a battery and processors. These glasses are intended for all-day use, and are a step closer to Apple's eventual goal of releasing a device that replaces the iPhone.

Previous reports about Apple's smartglasses project have pointed to a release as soon as 2020 - Apple has reportedly been working on some form of so-called "augmented reality" (AR) eyewear since at least 2015.

Apple is quietly working on the perfect iPhone

  Apple is quietly working on the perfect iPhone iPhone owners know that Apple only refreshes the handset’s design every once in a while, usually when it has something significant to say, design-wise. But, if you’ve been following the iPhone from the start, you probably realized that all the changes Apple made to the iPhone over the years, from the first model all the way to the iPhone X, are baby steps that Apple has been taking towards delivering the perfect iPhone design.

The idea with AR is simple: Instead of looking at your phone, the interface is projected within your field of vision. A version of Apple Maps in AR, for instance, would overlay directions on the world around you.

Microsoft's HoloLens and Magic Leap One, for example, are two early attempts at AR headsets.

More recently, Apple added foundational AR software to the iPhone with ARKit 3, RealityKit, and Reality Composer - three tools aimed at software developers for creating augmented reality software.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has repeatedly spoken about the potential for AR technology, and said in 2017 that it could "change the way we use technology forever."

The iPhone and other smartphones already have some forms of AR through software like Snapchat and "Pokémon Go," though the tech has yet to see wide mainstream adoption.

The next 10 years of Apple will include self-driving cars, computer glasses, and — yes — a much faster iPhone .
