Apple Reportedly Terminates AR Glasses Development

Smart glasses and AR devices have been targeted by Micro LED display technology and were considered to be the first applications entering the market. Previously LEDinside has collected news about Apple’s patent applications related to Micro LED and AR smart glasses. However, rumors said that Apple might have dropped its AR glasses project.

Apple’s project of AR/VR headset development might have been suspended due to immature capability of building 5G connectivity and data, according to the report of Digitimes. The report said that the team was disbanded in May with resources transferred to other pojects following the departure of Avi Bar-Zeev, the former team leader of Apple’s AR glasses development team.

Despite that Apple never officially responded to rumors related to its AR/VR plans; the company has geared with related technologies years ago by acquiring AR-related companies including PrimeSense, Metaio and RealFace. In recent two years, more evidences including patent applications have shown Apple’s plan on AR development.
