Apple's AR Headset is 'Approaching Liftoff' as Development Period Mimics Period Before Apple Watch Launch in 2014

Morgan Stanley analysts in its investor notes (via Investor's Business Daily) explain that Apple has gathered expertise and setbacks over the years and the AR headset is now "approaching liftoff."

Apple has filed numerous patents in which it has secured several aspects of the wearable including hardware user interface, an input mechanism, and much more. This is similar to how Apple filed a lot of patents before the launch of the Apple Watch. Henceforth, "Apple's patent portfolio is beginning to mirror the period before the Watch launch."

The enormity of the technical challenge — compressing daylong battery, 5G, compute, cameras, lidar, projectors and wave guide lenses into a lightweight, attractive pair of glasses — is hard to overstate, but we are approaching liftoff.
