More importantly, Apple has registered a couple of patents with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. This has further given us an idea of what to expect from the rumored Apple Glasses - even if the launch is going to take some more time.

For one, Apple has patented 'Privacy Eyewear' that can simply revolutionize how we use our iPhone. Plus, this feature would also redefine privacy as we know it today.

The patent 20210350769, shared by Patently Apple, primarily talks about facial scanning. The patent further explains how Apple is considering 'display profiles' based on the different appearances of a recognized user. This is a very broad expansion of the Face ID we currently have on our iPhone, but Apple refrains from mentioning Face ID anywhere in the patent.

Next, the iPhone switches to a 'privacy blur operation' where the Apple Glasses user gets to view a graphical output. On the other hand, others who can see the iPhone screen get a blurred graphical output. Simply put, when you view your iPhone screen with the Apple Glasses Privacy Eyewear, you can see basically everything you want without letting anyone access/see it.


Apple Glasses: Future Of AR/VR

Surely, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality glasses are the next-gen of immersive content viewing and creation. Be it gaming or even browsing for something. Apple isn't the only one working on smart glasses. For instance, we have the Google Glasses, Facebook Ray-Ban Stories, and much more.

Facebook changed its identity to Meta, aiming to create a more immersive, enhanced metaverse for its users. Facebook has also been talking about expanding its AR and VR base, including smart glasses for better social interaction and experience.

On the other hand, Apple has been working on expanding its AR base with 3D scanning via the iPhone. Given Apple's take on privacy and security, the upcoming Apple Glasses could further enhance the company's stance on privacy.

That said, modern users demand privacy - not just from people peeking into their phones. Privacy and security also come from what apps, browsers, and third parties can access on our phones. In that context, one needs to wait and see how Apple can cater to this demand with its smart glasses.
