An interview with Tim Cook that went relatively unnoticed when it was released has just resurfaced. We learn in particular from his mouth that his company is indeed working on augmented reality, which several rumors and patents have already claimed for a long time. Very recently, we were able to see a document that presents how a possible AR headset could embed biometric unlocking by face recognition of Face ID.
At the moment, the precise release date of such a device is not known. Nevertheless, a well-known analyst believes that consumers should only have to wait until the last quarter of 2022 to take advantage of it. It is about Ming-Chi Kuo, Taiwanese researcher followed by many investors because often predicting the future of Apple with accuracy.
When Rich DeMuro of KTLA (chain in Los Angeles) evokes the case of the rumors of corridors concerning supposed “electric cars“In preparation at Apple, Tim Cook retorts without hesitation that his teams are focused on”autonomy“, Even though his interlocutor did not precisely pronounce this term. An admission confirming that the Apple Car is indeed on the way? Probably.
This is not the only clue in favor of such a vehicle anyway, since the manufacturer has already been seen in official Californian documents which allow us to know some additional information concerning its fleet under test at the moment. According to the latest figures, Cupertino would thus have nearly seventy test cars.
Finally, note that Tim Cook also explains working on artificial intelligence. The CEO does not detail his plans in this area, but considers that this technology is “heart”Of its activities, as well as augmented reality and autonomy.
The interview was recorded for television at the opening of the new Apple Store The Grove in LA. This is where customers can buy products like iPhones, Macs and iPads, but also, as Cook points out, take advantage of many on-demand services. To date, this sector is also Apple’s second largest revenue driver, behind mobile.
