And apparently not to most of their own phones -- none of which yet offer functional support for Wi-fi 6E.It also has to be the iphone v14 that is equipped with the additional wifi version. But that's all fine. Apple doesn't make products to attach to competitive phones.
As it is to be limited to those phones that support Wi-fi 6E, it will be a small percentage of iPhone >=14 users and that's a relatively small number even in iPhone terms.I don't think it is a serious problem if they can only sell to 25% of the smart phone users.
Yet the article made a big deal about the patent regarding dynamic correction adjustment that clearly shouldn't require a prescription.The prescription for eye glasses is always separate from the actually frames and lenses.
The promises in the article made mention of many things that don't appear to be anywhere near ready so early adopters may well take a icy cold bath come v2. Especially for older consumers, correction changes seem to be something that happens more often as accommodation is lost. Watches and earbuds don't require constant adjustment like autofocus does and as a photographer, you well know what's involved with autofocus and the pain and suffering of turning it on and off.Based on the rumors, and the price, I'm willing to be an early adopter, same as I was for the Apple Watch and Airpods.
I don't think you understood how vision correction works. The eye doesn't tell the glasses how to correct. The prescription dictates the correction and that correction is determined from an eye exam. The eye exam is conducted by a series of eye tests where you describe what is in focus and what isn't. While I see a possibility of someone doing their own eye exam to determine the correction, that was not claimed in the speculation I saw. Apple already has one eye test I use for calibrating 3D so why not do more?Yet the article made a big deal about the patent regarding dynamic correction adjustment that clearly shouldn't require a prescription.
Right, the speculation by the author is the need for a NEW prescription. That didn't say the first systems will be able to know the starting point for correction. However I predicted that you could develop an app that a person could run the tests a doctor runs and the wearer do the analysis on his own in the same way. This does not replace the other eye diseases that a doctor tests for, however.Please review the video at 2:27.
So was being a bleeding edger beneficial to you in this case?Just be careful you understand the difference between what is speculated as possible with this technology and what will be in the first release.
My first Apple Watch couldn't make phone calls without the iphone. Now it can. It could not do ECG and Blood O2 levels, now it can.
The phrase used with respect to the "optical assembly" of the Glass was that they "will be able to change their optical properties on the go". To me that pretty certainly indicates that the plan is to profile the lenses as necessary rather than engaging in video processing.As I understand this vision correction process is that it does not do any variable optical refractive correction to bring things into focus, rather it shoots a video of the what's in view of the cameras and then projects that image in a fixed focus.
Yes, most defiantly. Actually back when I had an android phone I had the Sony smart watch and loved it. I wanted the Apple watch so much I switched to the iphone to upgrade from the Sony to the Apple Watch.So was being a bleeding edger beneficial to you in this case?
Yes and everything works that way. The fundamental device does open the door to many new possibilities and creative thinkers will speculate. But, that is not to be confused with what Apple will claim is the feature set when released, nor what will be coming in the future.There are certainly many possibilities but this video seems to go a little overboard on exploring the possibilities versus what's on tap for early adopters.
