The other day, a reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (Ming-Chi Kuo) said that augmented reality glasses Apple will not be released until 2022. However, blogger John Prosser, who recently regularly shares information on new Apple products, does not agree with him.

According to John Prosser, Apple plans to introduce its first augmented reality headset in March or June 2021, and not in 2022, as Min-Chi Kuo said. But do not exclude that both insiders are right. Perhaps Apple will indeed show the new device in 2021, but will only begin selling it in 2022. This has already happened with several Apple products. For example, the original model of smart watches Apple Watch was announced in September 2014, and went on sale only in April 2015. The same applies to the smart speaker HomePod, whose sales began in February 2018, almost a year after its debut at WWDC 2017.
By the way, according to rumors, Apple is working on two separate augmented reality devices – a volumetric helmet and more elegant glasses. Apple's AR headset is expected to come out sooner than glasses, so there may be some confusion between them. In any case, in a year we will see the first augmented reality device under the apple brand.
