Based on recent reports, we’ve got a pretty clear picture of what to expect from Apple’s rumored augmented reality headset expected to arrive next year, but the outlook is more opaque concerning its consumer-grade AR smartglasses.

Now, an analyst with a proven track record projecting Apple’s product roadmap has not only set an event horizon for the company’s next-generation AR smartglasses but also surfaced yet another augmented reality wearable, smart contact lenses, further down the path.

A new research report from TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, surfaced by MacRumors, reaffirms the arrival of Apple’s AR/VR headset for 2022, followed by smartglasses as early as 2025 and smart contacts in the 2030-2040 timeframe.

Kuo does not believe that Apple has not arrived at a prototype for its AR smartglasses at the moment, but he does believe that the device will integrate with the oft-rumored Apple Car.

In addition, Kuo predicts that the VR headset with pass-through AR capabilities will fall in line with the price of Apple’s premium iPhones (around $1,000). It currently weighs between 200-300 grams but he expects it to be reduced to 100-200 grams by launch.
