DigiTimes reported this week that Apple Glasses have reached a new phase in the development process and are moving to a second phase in which the focus will be on battery life and weight. 

After the second phase is completed, Apple will enter the third stage with an actual prototype focused on the physical design of the glasses. Upon completion of the prototype phase, it will go through 6 to 9 months of testing and a verification process. 

Gurman also reported that Apple's glasses would overlay information such as text messages and maps in front of the wearer's eyes and that users will be able to control the glasses with Siri. He further reported that the glasses are unlikely to be available until sometime in 2023. 

Apple reportedly is involved with several VR/AR projects that would also include a headset. There will reportedly be an AR or VR headset announced sometime in 2021 so it would appear that the headset will be released before the glasses.

He has written about every topic imaginable, from dating, family, politics, social issues, and tech. He wrote his first tech articles for the now-defunct Dads On Tech 10 years ago, and his passion for combining humor and tech has grown under the tutelage of the Laptop Mag team. His penchant for tearing things down and rebuilding them did not make Mark popular at home, however, when he got his hands on the legendary Commodore 64, his passion for all things tech deepened. These days, when he is not filming, editing footage, tinkering with cameras and laptops, or on stage, he can be found at his desk snacking, writing about everything tech, new jokes, or scripts he dreams of filming.
