Despite a hectic schedule and exceptional working conditions, Apple continues to work on its future products. Among them, Apple Glass, augmented reality glasses, seem to benefit from an advanced development.
The leakerJon Prosser, who recently saw the light on the release of the new MacBook Pro 13 and the iPhone SE, among others, today tells us several details about augmented reality glasses fromApple who will not show up at the end of their branches until next year…
Treatment similar toApple Watch first generation
