Apple certainly has some ideas about glasses, based on published patents. But a "slicker" version of Google Glass isn't immediately forthcoming from Apple, Cook told Vogue.
"There are rumours and gossip about companies working on that, and we obviously don't talk about what we work on. But today I can tell you that the technology itself doesn't exist to do that in a quality way," Cook told Vogue. "We don't give a rats about being first, we want to be best in creating people's experiences. Something that you would see out in the market any time soon would not be something that any of us would be satisfied with."
Apple's latest operating system supports augmented reality apps, and has already been adopted by retailers like Anthropologie and Ikea. Cook told Vogue that the ability to try on and buy clothes through augmented reality also likely won't be up to snuff this year.
But while Apple has a long history of plugging away on the perfect products while other companies take the lead, fellow technology giant Amazon has already been experimenting aggressively on similar features. The Amazon app can let users buy books by photographing the cover, and the Echo Look dabbles in fashion suggestions.
