Newly-revealed patents offer glimpse of Apple’s 2020 vision

Jonny Evans for Computerworld:

Apple patents granted in the final moments of 2019 shine a little light into its plans for the next decade.

Apple won 31 patents on Dec. 31, 2019. Three are of particular interest:

• A passenger safety system for vehicles.
• A smart headphone system that optimizes the audio for how they are worn. (Might this actually be a highly efficient spatial sound system for immersive environments?)
• An Eye ID system for a head-mounted display.

MacDailyNews Take: This year will be about the 5G iPhone (“iPhone 5G?”). Apple Glasses, featuring augmented reality for both consumers and business, and “Apple Car” will come in later years this decade.
