Apple was granted 49 patents by the USPTO (U.S. Patent Office) on the first hours of Tuesday, March 20. The most significant is, of course, the tech giant’s developmental works on AR technology.

This development, with Patent No. 9922446, was filed in 2014 but wasn’t released until now. The patent title goes as: “Method of Displaying Virtual Information in a Real Environment.” Apple’s aim is to create a new process based on AR applications to be used on iPhone, iPad, and future smart glasses.

The Apple AR Glass patent reveals another product of Apple in its future cards. As per reports, the tech firm is developing a sophisticated smart glass named Apple Glass. The name is still subject to change when it is realized.

As per the source, Apple granted AR patent of Glass (for now) wasn’t included in the 49 granted patents but is relevant as the company’s intentions are indicating. Therefore, Apple now has at least 50 future products for release!

Returning to the matter concerning patents, related documents reveal the role of camera-equipped devices in ways of interacting with real-world environments. Again, smart glasses are brought into the mix. Apple explains the possibility of users viewing super-imposed or mixed virtual item info via incorporating these glasses with the capture devices.
