Apple Glass is the new device you definitely don't need

In a video that's largely focused on the latest leaks about Apple Glasses, Prosser includes an aside that Apple is having "internal talks of having that [iPhone 12] event in October".

Who can forget the fate of Google Glass? We even have a name for the new AR glasses: Apple Glass.

The display will appear in both lenses, using Apple's UI called Starboard, allowing you to control the glasses using gestures on the frames as well as waving your hands in front of the lenses.

Auxiliary feature rumoured is wireless charging with the glass flipped upside down on the charging board provided. But there are still a few tricks that will attract buyers and might make the Apple Glass yet another groundbreaking product from the company.

As for what you'll get when you finally can buy the Apple Glass, supposedly the prototype Prosser has seen has a plastic frame, but he added that he wouldn't be surprised if the material changed for the final product.

Johnson & Johnson to stop selling talc-based baby powder in US, Canada
Several juries have decided against Johnson & Johnson, in one case awarding $4.7 billion to 22 women including Kim in 2018. Talc, the softest of minerals, is mined from deposits around the world, which can be contaminated with asbestos .

Additionally, the Apple Glass will have a LiDAR scanner integrated into the right temple. But let's not get too far ahead of ourselves here! That might count out the iPhone 12 launch if social distancing is still in place. It's easy to assume that futuristic tech like this will cost upwards of £1000/$1000, especially in a world where high-spec iPhones and iPads sell for the same prices as a MacBook Pro, but Prosser claims it'll be surprisingly affordable at just $499 (likely £499 in the UK).

Ross Young, Founder and CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, says that Apple will use OLED screens on all iPhone 12 models: iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

While the glasses were expected to be released at the end of the year or early 2021, it's unclear if obstacles created by the coronavirus will affect that release date.

The new Apple iPhone SE comes with a 4.7-inch Retina HD display and remains one of the rare compact smartphones in this day and age. The tipster added that the announcement may be pushed to March 2021. The Apple Watch is already a very personal device, but it's also discreet - the same can't be said for something that sits on your nose. The analyst claims to have a video of the prototype Apple Glass in action, but it's something that'll have to be cleared by his lawyers beforehand. We know that there was a possibility of Glass as well but Apple Glass it is, as per the report.
