According to the latest report, Apple has not yet begun testing the second prototype of its rumored AR (augmented reality) glasses, which runs counter to the expectations of its supply partners, the latter. It was expected that the testing of the second prototype would start in the first quarter of this year.

Many media reported that Apple is developing a set of AR glasses, which look like ordinary glasses, but with a built-in display that can be interacted with through gestures. The current prototype product (the first prototype) is said to be similar to high-end sunglasses with thick frames, with batteries and chips inside the frame.

Taiwanese media "DigiTimes" once reported that Apple is about to enter the second phase (P2) development of AR glasses, focusing on improving the weight of the device and battery life. This indicates that this AR glasses may be mass-produced as early as the first quarter of 2022.

But today, "DigiTimes" also cited industry sources as saying that Apple's AR glasses did not start P2 prototype testing in the first quarter of this year as expected by supply chain partners. This means that mass production will not be possible in the first quarter of 2022.

The source also said that after P2, AR glasses prototypes may need to go through P3 testing, and then go through two to three stages of engineering testing before they have a chance to enter mass production.

According to other media reports in January this year, Apple’s AR glasses “it will take a few years” to be available, although Apple originally planned to release it as early as 2023. In addition, well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had predicted that Apple's AR glasses would be released in 2022 at the earliest.

According to previous media reports, before launching AR glasses, Apple will be the first to launch a VR (virtual reality) headset. This VR headset will be an expensive niche product and is expected to be launched in 2022. Its role is mainly to pave the way for more mainstream "AR glasses" in the future.
