CES, the world’s largest annual consumer technology trade show, runs from January 5-8 and is expected to feature 3,800 exhibitors showing off their latest products and services to more than 165,000 attendees.
Now, Ming-Chi Kuo, one of the most reliable Apple analysts working at TF International Securities, claimed that the new AR headset of the giant iPhone maker would have the power of the MacBook.
He claimed that the giant manufacturer’s new augmented reality glasses would have this power through its in-house M1 chipset.
Here’s how M1 SoC would benefit the upcoming Apple smart glasses.

The advanced SoC would allow the new smart glasses to have an independent power that is comparable to the high-end laptops of the giant iPhone maker.
This is a great innovation given that the existing AR and VR headsets are physically or wirelessly connected to handsets or other gadgets.
If the M1 integration is true, there’s a high chance that the upcoming smart glasses would no longer require an operating gadget to work. On the other hand, other rumors claimed that the forthcoming Apple augmented reality gadget could also be an iPhone accessory.
Right now, all these details are still speculations until the giant manufacturer actually launches it.
