According to the rumors, Apple is working on several headset-like devices in the future. One of the rumors that they are augmented reality glasses. Now we’ve seen companies like Google try these types of glasses, and Snap also sells something loosely related to the Snap Spectacles.
However, none of these devices really caught on, so we’re sure some are skeptical of Apple’s success, but analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is optimistic about the company’s success. Kuo believes Apple’s AR glasses have the potential to sell up to 1 billion units.
Basically, Kuo had previously stated that Apple apparently plans to replace the iPhone with these glasses over the next 10 years, so those 1 billion units are essentially current and future iPhone users who may be willing to use these glasses in place of the iPhones. It’s a pretty optimistic view and like I said, none of these wearables have shown much success yet other than being extremely hyped.
It is possible that such devices will gain more acceptance in the next 10 years, but we will have to wait and see for ourselves. In the meantime, would any of you be willing to swap a more traditional smartphone for AR glasses?
