Apple's augmented reality projects come to life with the new iPad Pro in early 2020. The company is expected to continue its work in augmented reality, with caps and anti-reflective glasses to be released in 2023.
The iPad Pro, which will be released in early 2020, will feature a small hole for the 3D system as well as for the dual camera system. Note that the 3D sensors of the iPad Pro were mentioned for the first time by Ming-Chi Kuo in November of last year.
Until now, it was thought that the new models of iPad Pro were equipped with 3 cameras, but new developments show that the new models of iPad Pro have a dual camera technology and 3D system. In addition, the new iPhones, which will be introduced in 2020, will incorporate 3D sensor technology and 5G connectivity.
Let's say that the new 3D sensor system will be the focus of Apple's work in the field of AR. Likewise, the new 3D sensors on the devices will be a much more advanced version of the ID face sensor currently being used on iPhones and iPads.
In 2021 or 2022, Apple should produce a title combining VR and AR. The title will focus on games, video viewing and virtual meetings. Following this development, the company is expected to launch its AR glasses in 2023 with a lightweight design.
Let's remember that nearly 1,000 engineers led by Mike Rockwell, vice president of the company, are working on AR and RV initiatives. This interdisciplinary team is also part of Apple's hardware engineering department. On the other hand, the same team has different leaders in this department. The team members were people who had previously worked on Apple's game development system and the hardware, software, and production of previous iPhone models.
At this point, the first AR title to be introduced in 2019 and 2020 is scheduled to go on sale, but let's remember that the product moves on to a later period.
