Your iPhone experience may be about to change forever. Apple recently filed a number of patents with the US Patent and Trademark Office.
One of the newly revealed patents has revealed Apple’s idea and goal in creating a pair of smart glasses that can change the way you use your iPhone.
Apple’s patent describes a device called “Privacy Eyewear” or “Privacy Glass” that allows users to view content on the iPhone screen but block it from allowing people around to see it.
This solution requires you to remove the LCD screen and put special hardware inside the device to support displaying content in 3D. In the case of Apple, we are talking about a future solution.
New patent reveals, Apple seems to be envisioning a connection between privacy between and smart glasses. In other words, it will be a pair of privacy-oriented glasses. Once the user’s face scan is started, the glasses will detect the content and make adjustments to blur the displayed content to help secure the user’s information.
Apple’s patent 20210350769 mainly deals with face scanning and other advanced forms of scanning. The patent shows that Apple is looking at adjusting the shape of the device based on the user’s appearance and will very likely expand the functionality of Face ID.
The technology world is very much waiting for Apple Glass
It will be interesting to see how Apple researches and implements augmented reality, Head-mounted Display and metaverse glasses.
No company has yet to deliver a clear vision of smart glass technology. Even if Google once laid the foundation for the smart glasses market with its Google Glass product, it has so far been a product that has not really attracted attention.
But if Apple is successful in researching and launching smart glasses that support augmented reality technology and 3D scanning, it can completely promote and make the smart glasses market vibrant. no less than smartphones.
However, it is not clear whether the patent above means that users will have to wear glasses at all times to view private content. And if so, do we feel the need for such glasses?
