Apple eyes wearable glass headsets


NEW York: Apple is considering expanding into wearable glass headsets and has talked about the project with potential suppliers, Bloomberg reports, citing people familiar with the matter.
The wearable headset would show images, along with other information and may use augmented reality, according to the report.
Chief executive Tim Cook, who has been struggling with a slowdown in iPhone sales in recent quarters, said earlier this year that the company would continue to invest a lot into augmented reality. Apple, the world’s largest technology company, has ordered a small number of near-eye displays for testing but has not obtained enough for production on a larger scale, the report added. Apple declined to comment.
The move would make Apple the latest tech company to venture into wearable glasses. Alphabet Inc’s discontinued its own wearable glass headset, Google Glass, and closed the social media account linked to the device earlier this year. – AAP
