As you noticed, we haven't heard anything about Apple from CES 2018 tech show. The Cupertino Giants are famous for arranging their own private events for announcing their new products. So, it is hard to find them at this kind of tech shows. But as per Bloomberg report, Apple representative held a meeting with Augmented Reality suppliers at this year's CES show.
During CES, representatives from major players like Apple, Facebook, and Google met with suppliers that make the nuts and bolts required to power AR glasses, according to people familiar with the meetings.
The report doesn't say anything about things they discussed during the meeting. But this boosts the journey of the so-called Apple Glasses from rumor to reality. They started working on their AR Glass project from last year onwards. The patent details of the project surfaced online in July last year. And rumors emerged in the last months of 2017, suggesting that Apple Glasses may run rOS and will pack parts from iPhone's metal frame supply.
Engineers are prototyping a range of applications, from mapping and texting to more advanced features including virtual meeting rooms and 360-degree video playback. The company has discussed pairing the headset with its own version of the App Store, where users would be able to download content, just as they do with the iPhone, Watch, Apple TV and Mac.
Being said that, Apple didn't reveal any details regarding the specs and features of the device officially. But now we have hope that they will be revealing Apple Glass sometime in the near future.
