Rumor: Apple Glass won’t work without iPhone

According to The Information, users will need to connect Apple’s AR/VR headset to an iPhone or similar device in order to access most of the available features. In fact, at the initial stage, Apple Glass will hardly be called an independent gadget. However, the situation should change in the future.

It is worth noting that initially the Apple Watch also could not work properly without the iPhone. However, over the past few years, the Apple Watch has evolved from being a companion gadget to being a device in its own right.

As for Apple Glass, the company has created a new chip specifically for its AR / VR helmet. In terms of performance, it is much inferior to modern solutions that are used in the iPhone and Mac. For this reason, the processor is not suitable for supporting AI or machine learning related functions.

However, the chip is quite capable of supporting the operation of the helmet and quickly processing a large amount of data. Also, sources note that when developing a processor for Apple Glass, much attention was paid to energy efficiency.

It is expected that the official announcement of the AR / VR helmet will take place next year. At the same time, some believe that initially the gadget will be available only to a limited circle of users. The helmet will appear in wide sale with a noticeable delay.
