Apple Will Reportedly Replace iPhones With Smart Glasses "in Roughly a Decade"

Emphasizing the future of wearable tech.

Yes, you read that right. As reported by The Information, Apple is reportedly planning on phasing out the popular iPhone to replace them with smart glasses “in roughly a decade.” Sources at the technology giant reported that executives have been discussing the release timelines of VR and AR headsets, and Vice President Mike Rockwell who leads Apple’s AR and VR initiatives, reportedly led the meeting.

Senior managers at Apple have expressed that they see the new headsets as replacements to the smartphone, with the first device arriving in 2022. The gadget features high-resolution displays, cameras mounted to the inside as well as the ability to map your surrounding. In addition, there will also be a slimmer iteration resembling sunglasses, which are intended for all-day use.

Having worked on augmented-reality eyewear since 2015, Apple has yet to publicly update its consumers regarding any upcoming AR and VR hardware projects. As wearable tech continues to grow, make sure to keep an eye out as any more updates regarding the new initiative surfaces.
