Apple will unveil the iPhone 11 series next week, likely alongside new Apple Watch models, but these aren’t the only new iOS products the company is developing. In fact, some of them might not be introduced until a much later date, and we’re not talking about the 2019 iPad Pro models that should be announced in October. A discovery in an internal iOS 13 development build suggests Apple hasn’t stopped developing its rumored augmented reality (AR) glasses, revealing some details about the unreleased device.

The AR glasses, which we’ve called Apple Glasses in the past because of Apple’s way of naming some of its products under Tim Cook, have made appearances in previous rumors. Several well-known insiders familiar with Apple’s plans claimed in the past few years that Apple is indeed developing AR glasses, which should be unveiled in 2020 at the earliest.

Apple may introduce a custom 5G modem for the iPhone sooner than expected

Apple may introduce a custom 5G modem for the iPhone sooner than expected It’s possible that Apple might use its own 5G modem designs on lower-end or older models while using Qualcomm’s chips in its higher-end models to ensure quality and sufficient volume. Apple undoubtedly wants to free itself from Qualcomm’s aggressive royalty rates, but it will likely be years before that becomes a feasible option. Sign up for BGR's Newsletter.

iOS 13 is even faster than iOS 12. For example, Face ID now unlocks up to 30 percent faster.5. AR apps can now place virtual objects naturally in front or behind people for new and more immersive Testing conducted by Apple in May 2019 using iPhone XS supporting normal peak performance and

Since then, we saw Apple turn AR into one of the main features of iOS, with each new software release, including new AR tricks. This has been seen as proof that Apple is laying the foundation of what will eventually become the operating system of Apple Glasses, which will probably be based on iOS. These Apple Glasses should work as a companion device, at least at first, requiring a connection to an iPhone to operate, just like the Apple Watch does.

With a few days left until Apple releases the final version of iOS 13, MacRumors inspected an internal development build of the upcoming operating system. That’s where it spotted a STARTester app that can switch in and out of a head-mounted mode “presumably to replicate the functionality of an augmented reality headset on an iPhone for testing purposes.” The test includes two modes, “worn,” and “held,” which further supports the idea that it’s a test for AR glasses.

2020 Apple Macbooks to launch with 5G connectivity: report

2020 Apple Macbooks to launch with 5G connectivity: report This week 9To5Mac spotted a report published by Digitimes claiming that Apple's first MacBooks with cellular connectivity are slated to hit the market during the second half of next year. According to Taiwanese media site Digitimes, Apple is planning to launch 5G-compatible MacBooks sometime during the second half of 2020. If this claim is true, these will be the first MacBook laptops launched by the company with cellular connectivity and will gain the feature via an integrated ceramic antenna component. Allegedly, using ceramic parts will double 5G speed compared with their metal counterparts.

Furthermore, an internal “Readme” file in IOS 13 describes a “Starboard” system shell for stereo AR apps, which also implies the use of a headset. The same file indicates that Apple is developing an AR device called “Garta,” which could be one of many prototypes, MacRumors says.

The “Starboard mode” is also referenced elsewhere in the code, with “views,” and “scenes.” Some of these strings mention AR clearly, like “ARStarBoardViewController” and “ARStarBoardSceneManager.”

There are no images for these Apple Glasses prototypes, and no official timeline for their launch. Apple doesn’t talk publicly about whatever projects it may have in development, but Tim Cook did say in the past the company is working on products that haven’t been rumored.
