Jon Prosser has made a name for himself in the Apple world thanks to his numerous leaks. The Apple Glass are among the latest leaks that it has been releasing through its Twitter account and in a YouTube video. But in addition to giving technical details of how these new glasses could be, there is also information from a limited edition in honor of Steve Jobs.
Apple Glass Steve Jobs heritage edition would be a reality
In the latest Cult of Mac podcast, Prosser mentioned that Apple is working on an Apple Glass ‘Steve Jobs Heritage’ edition . This is quite reminiscent of the gold edition of the original Apple Watch that paid a small tribute to Steve Jobs at a high price point.
The price of this Apple Watch was around $10,000 and it is possible that these glasses go even further in regards to price. According to Prosser, this movement may respond to a simple marketing strategy.
Officially, nothing is yet known about these glasses. But Jon Prosser has had a chance to see an unfinished prototype. He says that the design is very similar to Ray-Ban Wayfarers or the glasses that Tim Cook wears. In addition to giving details about the design, he has also been able to confirm that they will receive the name ‘Glass’, just as Google did with its first attempt at AR glasses.
The price could start at $499 and change as the years go by, as happened with the Apple Watch. We must remember that the first edition of the Apple watch had some important flaws that were polished over the generations as well.
With a neat design and a double screen, a leans in each glass, the Apple Glass could end up being presented as a great ‘one more thing’ in March 2021. This date has been discussed by some analysts like Ming-Chi Kuo but other sources are agreeing with Prosser’s forecast.
Whose predictions are better about Apple Glass?
Jon Prosser has the ability to wake up analysts who have been giving data about the company for many years. The first was Ming-Chi Kuo whom he severely contradicted with Prosser’s data about the Apple Glass. And the next was Mark Gurman, who has also made a name for himself in this world of Apple with his leaks.
With this discussion, Mark Gurman responded to the tweet with this exclusive information. In a summarized way, he said all these leaks that we see are fiction. Jon Prosser, with enough elegance, told everyone to wait next year to see who can end up being right in this regard. Gurman wanted to affirm flatly that these glasses will not be ready until the year 2022 or 2023, and that what we will see in 2021 will be a simple AR and VR helmet. We will see…
