    This is starting to feel like the whole Apple Car thing. Scores and scores of articles of it definitely coming, who is working on it, where they are working on it, when it might launch, what it might have and then it never really was going to happen at all.

    Or go back several years earlier, and it was the same thing with the Apple TV.

    One wonders sometimes where these stories come from, or are they just total fabrications that the entire industry is in on to fill column inches and provide clickbait.

    Be honest, is it really now journalistic worth posting ANYTHING on this subject, when the most recent "leak" is saying its not happening for 3-4 years, and actually no one knows for sure if there is actually a project at all ?

    I hear Apple are going to fabricate their own ram chips, won't be in devices until 2028...proceed with conjecture for 3-4 years about size, R&D partner, key personnel, cost savings, novel IP that might be deployed based on some tenuous patents being applied/granted, power requirements, location of plant, first product to use them etc...and then ummm, the project has been dropped.
    Good grief. There is myriad proof in the form of patents that the car and glasses are significant active projects. The TV project was definitely explored as there are patents back then (2010-2012ish) that pointed to them working on TV display tech and other related things. Likely they scrapped it for a variety of reasons and now here we are with a box and apps on most TVs out there. 

    It's possible Titan get the full axe at some point but it's certainly still being worked on, so no idea where you got "it never really was going to happen at all" from.  AR is very clearly part of Apple's roadmap and has been for some time now. We're about to see the first hardware product in this space, and it's extremely clear that the path is towards less obtrusive glasses-style devices in the future.

    Maybe someone should tell Apple about Google Glass.  No one wants to wear them, ever.  These rumors are as bad as 3DTV.  That was a major flop because no one wants to deal with glasses, and it was just a big gimmick anyway.  That is why they stopped making 3DTVs because even the manufacturers knew it was a big fail.

    Dutchlord is right.  If they are a reality, they will be grossly expensive.  The ridiculous AR goggles are estimated at $3K, priced so high, no one will buy them.  Apple is trying to re-invent stuff that already failed big time.
    Steve Ballmer, that you?

    Or we can expect a 2095 launch date.

    I wish I could read Daniel Eran Dilger’s
    take on this, but his time as an Apple writer seems… Ded. Now he posts left-affirming viewpoints which do make some sense, but none of which appears to be a 10th as eloquent as his Apple scribing days. DED was the ultimate insider, but now he’s in Germany doing… ??

    would have been great to see his views on the Apple glasses. At least we’ll always have his past body of work, but it’s a sad loss to get nothing more despite DED still being in the land of the living, but no longer DEDicated to Apple analysis.

    Rumor: iPhone 18 coming in 2026 at the earliest!!

    Seriously though, iPhone 20 in 2027.  I predict they skip to 20 or XX for the 20th anniversary.

    My example of ram chips shows how easy it would be to create column feet out of thin air and let it run and run for years, and then just kill it off. When everyone accepts that Apple is an uber secretive company, and therefore hard facts are often next to impossible to acquire, it is easy to create a false narrative. Who knows how many of these are based in any reality at all, or indeed are seeded by the company themselves to throw competitors a complete curve ball.
