n Prosser, video blog host Front Page Tech, Apple could launch an Augmented Reality line of smart glasses in the spring of 2021.

The new peepers will be called "Apple Glass" and will sell for US$ 499, with more cost for prescription lenses, Prosser claimed.

Both lenses are displays that support the interaction between gestures.

The glasses work alongside an iPhone.

Earlier prototypes supported 3D scanning and wireless charging on the LiDAR module, Prosser said.

Apple originally planned to unveil the specs at its fall event, but the announcement may be postponed until March 2021, with release scheduled for late 2021 or early 2022.

"These rumors have been building up for quite some time, but this is the most coherent information we've ever had on this," said George Jijiashvili, senior analyst at Omdia, a London-based research and consultancy firm.

"I think Apple has been working behind closed doors on AR glasses, and they will release them because they have all the right parts to make it work," he told TechNewsWorld.
