We're fully expecting the iPhone 12 range to have improved cameras, and one improvement all four models could have is a better wide-angle snapper. It's a treasure trove of information for Apple fans, and we break down the key details right here. The glasses, which will pair to the iPhone, are expected to feature a display in each lens that you can interact with using a series of gestures. These displays are apparently only visible to the wearer, meaning those around you can't snoop on incoming messages when talking to you, and the privacy focus extends to the on-board sensors too.

And of course, who can forget the fate of the last high-profile set of of electronic glasses: Google Glass? Apple is generating billions in revenue through AirPods every year.

If you've bought in to Apple's ecosystem of wearables, Apple Glass as it's described now will fit in nicely among your current devices.

The glasses aren't big or techy, so how are they powered?

The second-generation iPhone SE has a conventional rectangular display with thick borders on the top and bottom. Apple Glass could well become the most popular specs on the street.

And this isn't surprising seeing as the Epic Games store nearly immediately crashed as soon as the free offer was made available. For a self-refund to work, the game can't have been purchased more than 14 days ago and not played for more than two hours.

Apple Glass is shaping up to be more of iPhone accessory than futuristic computing device. As per the report, the base model of the iPhone SE has a "54% component cost margin". Those looking for more storage can opt for 128GB or 256GB models, which are priced at Rs. 47,800 and Rs. 58,300, respectively. A lot has been reported and rumored about upcoming smartphones from Apple, and their design has been talked about as well. The latest iPhone was launched in April this year and comes with a starting price of Rs 42,500.

Regardless of when it's revealed, Prosser is certain that it won't be made available at the same time. The adapter sells for $9 on Apple's website.

That's according to renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, in a note sent to clients Wednesday.

That's a huge leak for a product so far away from release, and is likely a devastating blow to Apple's highly-secretive Glass team, but Prosser isn't done yet.

Prosser claims to have seen a prototype of Apple Glass, which thankfully is "meant to look like glasses, not intimidating tech". Let us know on Twitter.
