APPLE is expected to replace iPhone with a NEW computing device every day.
An expert has revealed the schedule for this epic change – and it’s not far off.
Leading analyst and longtime industry insider Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple is expected to replace the iPhone in just 10 years – in 2032.
In its place would be an AR device – it’s augmented reality.
AR is when a computer-generated image is overlaid on the world around you.
Right now, you can see AR in apps like Pokemon Go.
But tech companies – including Facebook, Microsoft and Google – are scrambling to develop wearable AR devices.
Some of these already exist, as is the case with Microsoft HoloLens.
Most experts think this device will be a pair of glasses that will allow you to change the world around you.
This can be an overlay of directions on the map, showing you information about what you are watching or playing Video Games AR / VR.
In a note to investors seen by the tech blog 9to5MacKuo explains that Apple’s timeline shows that the iPhone will be replaced after 10 years.
“Currently, there are over a billion active iPhone users,” said Kuo.
“If Apple’s goal is to replace the iPhone with AR in 10 years, that means Apple will sell at least a billion AR devices in 10 years.”
More importantly, Kuo says that the success of these goggles will depend on how separate they are from the iPhone.
“If the AR headset is positioned only as an accessory for the Mac or iPhone, it will not benefit the development of the product.
“A standalone AR headset means it has its own ecosystem and offers the most flexible and complete user experience.”
Apple is expected to launch early versions of these glasses next year.
They will compete with other early AR/VR devices like Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2 and HTC Vive.
According to Kuo, this first device won’t rely on the iPhone to gauge performance – and will ship “with the same amount of computing power as the Mac”.
The headset is equipped with two 4K microphones made by Sony OLED screen.
This shows that goggles can also support virtual reality – like AR, but where you are completely immersed in a computer-generated world.
AR and VR are tied to Mark Zuckerberg’s vision of reverse.
Zuckerberg’s meta – formerly Facebook – recently announced that you will soon be able to live in a virtual house inside the metaverse.
Apple has previously confirmed interest in AR and VR, but has yet to officially announce a dedicated headset.
