Apple has been granted a patent (number 10,893,412) for “verified devices that have enabled user authentication” indicating that rumors of “Apple Glasses” could give rise to other Apple devices.
In copyright data, Apple notes that many electronic devices restrict access to a variety of features based on user authentication. The tech giant says that when multiple devices are used simultaneously, the processes of unlocking one device at a time can delay user access and reduce the quality of the user experience.
Apple’s idea? Approved device installed by user as headset device. That could be Apple Glasses, which will be able to find out what other Apple devices are close to the headsets and turn them on, accordingly.
Here is a summary of the patent (which is a heavy kinda in technical jargon): A verified user authentication includes finding, with a verified device, a nearby device, where the verified device user has currently accessed restricted access to the verified device function. The method involves performing, with the verified device, the user’s determination regarding the limited access function of the nearest device. The method involves an objective response response indicating the purpose of accessing the limited access function of a nearby device, making, with a proven device, a user verification authentication in relation to a nearby device. ”
When it comes to Apple Glasses, such a device will arrive this year or 2022, depending on what you believe. The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) thinks it will at least be viewed first this year.
Apple Glasses will be a head-mounted display. Or you can have a design like “normal” mirrors. Or it can be found in both. Apple Glasses may or may not need to be attached to the iPhone in order to work. Some rumors say that Apple Glasses could have an Apple chip builder and a dedicated app called “rOS” for a “real operating system.”
