Apple is planning to launch its rumored Apple Glasses in 2022 at the earliest, reports analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The glasses will are expected to work with your iPhone to display texts, emails, maps, and games over your field of vision.

Notably, in November The Information reported that Apple plans to release both an AR headset and AR glasses. They said the AR headset is planned for 2022 and the AR glasses are planned for 2023.

Kuo also says that Apple is working on two new iPad models, including a long overdue update to the iPad mini.

We predict that Apple will launch the new 10.8 inch ‌iPad‌ and 8.5–9 inch ‌iPad‌ mini models in 2H20 and 1H21, respectively. GIS will be the main touch panel supplier. The two new ‌iPad‌ models will follow iPhone SE’s product strategy, and selling points will be the affordable price tag and the adoption of fast chips. We believe that GIS will be the primary touch panel supplier for these two new affordable ‌iPad‌ models because the company is the largest medium-size touch supplier, thanks to the cost advantages of Megasite. We think that two new affordable ‌iPad‌ models will significantly contribute to GIS’s revenue because affordable models account for 60–70% of total ‌iPad‌ shipments.

The new iPad models are expected to arrive at affordable price points. Although both displays are larger than previous generations, Kuo didn't specify if Apple plans to drop the Home button and move to a thinner bezel design.
