Apple Is Powering Ahead with AR
Whether or not a pair of Apple AR glasses is in development, you can’t argue with the fact that Apple appears to be all-in on augmented reality. From the very first implementation of ARKit back in 2017 to recent updates Apple has made to the development platform, it doesn’t look like Apple’s underlying AR technology is going anywhere.
And AR has potential beyond a wearable headset. Apple-developed AR platforms could be used in anything from vehicular navigation to multiplayer gaming. The technology may be off to a slow start (thanks in no small part to duds like Google Glass), but it’s safe to say that AR isn’t a gimmick — and it isn’t going anywhere.
