Google Glass to get iPhone SMS support later this week

New Calendar Glassware will display upcoming agendas

People pairing Google Glass with an iPhone will get promised SMS support "in the next few days," according to Google. Because of the closed nature of iOS, iPhone owners won't actually be able to send texts from Glass. They will, however, be able to receive notifications on their headset. To enable the option people will have to go into an iPhone's Bluetooth settings, and turn on "Show Notifications" for the paired hardware. Android users already have full SMS support.

On Glass itself, Google says it will soon add new Calendar Glassware, which will be enabled via the MyGlass app for iOS and Android. Toggling it on will display an agenda to the left of the homescreen. Tapping on a calendar card will let people edit event details -- such as name, time, location, and RSVP status -- or delete an event entirely.
