Google GLass

Google glass has announced that they will soon be supporting iPhone running iOS alongside other handsets running Google’s own OS – Android.

The new integration will allow iPhone users to access text messages and navigation on Google glass which is currently only available to Android users via a special companion app.

Google glass is currently able to pull data from the iPhone’s Internet connection via Bluetooth tethering however the rest of its functionality was limited.

While Glass will happily work with any iPhone over Bluetooth or use any Wi-Fi connection to get online, iPhone users are currently unable to get turn-by-turn directions through Glass – one of its killer features. Those direction are pretty useful while you are navigating a new city and they do show off the power of location-based apps on Glass, but the software will currently balk if you ask it to give you directions while it’s connected to an iPhone.

The device is currently priced at $1,500 which is around £963.95 at today’s exchange rates and only available to a select few, however Google Glass is expected to be released later this year at a substantially lower price.
