Apple's augmented / virtual reality glasses need help - you won't be able to use them without an iPhone, according to The Information

For Tim Cook, augmented reality is critical to Apple's future. The company's efforts are clear in this area, and we've been hearing rumors for months (years?) About Apple's hypothetical virtual and augmented reality glasses .

New data coming from The Information now reveals that the first iteration of those glasses will not be standalone: ​​it will need an iPhone or some other Apple device (such as an iPad) to function . The limited power of its processor will therefore make these glasses something like what the Apple Watch is (even in its version with LTE): an accessory that makes a lot of sense without the iPhone.

Not without your iPhone (or your iPad / Mac)

According to sources close to the development of this device, the glasses will need to communicate wirelessly with a host device such as an iPhone, an iPad or a computer that can handle a good part of the calculations that will be needed to display content on the glasses.

It seems that the chip built into the glasses will not be as powerful as current Apple chips and will not have the Neural Engine that is used to speed up tasks related to artificial intelligence calculations. That 5nm chip could be a thing of the past by the time the goggles get thrown around.

Maybe even depending on the iPhone for certain tasks, these glasses can work partially independently as do for example the Oculus Quest 2. Even so the dependence on the external device seems to be notable in this first iteration.

The glasses will be rumored to have ultra-high resolution screens, and in fact there is talk of 8K screens in each eye , and also high resolution cameras to capture the outside world.

In The Information they indicate that it could still take a long time to see them available : although the physical design of the main chip, the screen controller and the image sensor has already been completed, there is still a lot to solve.

Thus, the glasses could arrive in 2022 at the earliest, but could arrive later. They would also do so at a high potential price that would be around $ 3,000 and that would place them in a similar range to that which Microsoft's HoloLens were also oriented.
