Analyst: ‘Apple Glasses,’ iPhone with 48-megapixel camera coming next year

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says we’ll see the rumored “Apple Glasses” (an augmented reality/virtual reality/mixed reality headset) and an iPhone with a 48-megapixel camera in 2022.

The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) thinks he’s right on both counts — though I think Apple will offer some tantalizing glimpses of the AR/VR headset at June’s Worldwide Developer Conference. As for an iPhone with a 48-pixel camera, that sounds about right as Apple is always beefing up the photography features on its smartphone.

When it comes to Apple Glasses, depending on which rumor you believe, it will be a head-mounted display. Or may have a design like “normal” glasses. Or it may be eventually be available in both. The Apple Glasses may or may not have to be tethered to an iPhone to work. Other rumors say that Apple Glasses could have a custom-build Apple chip and a dedicated operating system dubbed “rOS” for “reality operating system.”
