It has been known for a long time that Apple is working on augmented reality glasses. Recently, the company obtained another patent related to a device of this type.
A new Apple patent suggests that an additional function of AR glasses could be to unlock other devices from the same manufacturer. The document outlines several different ways in which it could work. The simplest one is to automatically unlock all devices belonging to the same user when they are near the AR glasses. Other methods additionally require performing some action confirming that we want to unlock a given device, e.g. looking at it, making a gesture or giving a voice command.
Of course, keep in mind that Apple often patents ideas “just in case.” So the patent application itself does not mean that the solution described in it will ever be used in a real product.
