The designer has used several of the design changes that were proposed by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and coming with an all-screen design, the front of the display is maximized for added screen real estate.

Apple is set to release a set of glasses soon, according to a significant brand-new report. The chassis for this headset will be supplied by Changying Precision and it would use an iPhone to drive AR experiences instead of featuring an inbuilt CPU or a graphics processor.

According to Kuo's report, the AR glasses will be less expensive compared to other AR glasses on the market.

The note doesn't mention a 16-inch MacBook Pro or new MacBook Air, which Kuo has previously said will launch in October. Kuo's sources indicated that the spectacles will pair with the user's iPhone and rely on the device for the bulk of its processing power.

He claims the new iPhone is likely to be called the "iPhone SE 2" and thinks the release will be within the first few months of the year, reports 9to5Mac. It was initially reported that Apple will design AR glasses that are independent of the iPhone, just like the Apple Watch.

Apple may launch two premium iPhone 11 models this year.The internal names given to the devices are D42 that would replace iPhone XS, and D43 to replace iPhone XS Max. The ToF sensor is similar to the TrueDepth sensor found on iPhones. Pricing is unknown, yet a part of the appeal of the original SE was its relatively low value (for an iPhone) and a mini dimension. It will have an iPhone 8-based design, down to the 4.7” LCD, however it will use the Apple A13 chipset from this year.

Kuo also predicts that Apple will release an augmented reality (AR) headset in the second quarter of 2020.

Back in July, reports claimed Apple had cancelled its AR headset following years of testing, with leaked medical reports showing in 2017 an Apple employee reported eye pain after working with a new prototype, thought to be Apple Glasses.
