An Expert Revealed the Timeline for this Significant Change???? And it’s not too far.
Top analyst and longtime industry insider Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple expects to replace the iPhone in just 10 years???? until 2032.

Right now you can see AR in apps like Pokemon Go.
But tech companies???? Including Facebook, Microsoft and Google???? are scrambling to develop AR devices that can be worn.
Some of these already exist, as is the case with the Microsoft HoloLens.
Most experts agree that this device will be a pair of glasses that let you change the world around you.

In a note to investors as seen by Tech Blog
9to5Mac, Kuo pointed out that Apple’s timeline has replaced the iPhone in 10 years.
“Currently, there are over a billion active iPhone users,” Kuo said.

“If Apple aims to replace the iPhone with AR in 10 years, that means Apple will sell at least a billion AR devices in 10 years.”
Importantly, Kuo says the success of these goggles will depend on how different they are from the iPhone.
“If the AR headset is positioned only as an accessory for the Mac or iPhone, it will not be conducive to product development.
“An AR headset that works independently means it will have its own ecosystem and provide the most complete and flexible user experience.”
Apple is expected to launch an early version of these goggles next year.
These will compete with other early AR/VR devices like Facebook’s
Oculus Quest 2 and HTC Vive. In a note to investors seen by tech blog 9to5Mac, Kuo pointed out that Apple’s timeline has replaced the iPhone at 10 years. shutterstock/parilov
According to Kuo, this initial device will not depend on the iPhone for performance. And will ship “with the same computing power level as the Mac”.
The headset is tipped to feature two Sony-made 4K mics
This indicates that the glasses will be able to support virtual reality as well. Like AR, but where you’re completely immersed in a computer-generated world.

Zuckerberg’s meta???? Facebook in the past 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 hasn’t formally announced a dedicated headset yet.
