Apple iGlass Concept differs from Google Glass Glasses, formally known as "Google Project Glass", which is a voice-activated smartglasses device. Apple iGlasses concept is more like an accessory, addition or add-on to be used with other iOS devices; rather than an independent standalone device aimed to totally replace smartphones, like Google Glasses.

Apple iGlass is more like an enhanced features rich eye wearable video display screen as it can be witnessed from Apple Patent no US 7,595,933 B2 filed back on September 29, 2009, under the title 'Head Mounted Display System'. Apple has filed a number of patents on wearable computers. Apple also has multiple patents that show displays embedded in Glasses.

Apple iGlasses Release Date

While Google has been gearing up for Google Glass launch, it seems that Apple wants to wait and see how people perceive Google Project Glass, what features it brings and what reception it gets in the market.

Apple is known not to move in markets that other companies are succeeding and would only move if it sees space and something valuable in that market space, in the gadget technology market.

Apple wants to build its iGlass into a viable wearable solution that is sure to give Project Glass a run for its money. It is for this reason that Apple iGlass would not be ready to release before Google brings its device.

Thus depending upon the Google Google release date, feature, and feedback, we expect an Apple iGlasses release date in the mid of 2014, most probably July or August 2014.

Apple iGlasses Price

Google SmartGlasses are per-ordered at $1500. However, Apple iGlass price, as they differ from Google eyePhones, is expected to be in a range from $349 to $399 in the USA.
