In an exciting update, Apple has officially revealed that the much-anticipated Apple Vision Pro will start shipping to customers in the United States on February 2. This announcement follows a brief pre-order period set to commence on January 19.
Since its introduction at WWDC 2023, Apple has consistently teased the arrival of the Apple Vision Pro in early 2024 without specifying a precise date. However, the tech giant has now confirmed the release date for its cutting-edge mixed-reality headset.
The Apple Vision Pro will initially be available exclusively in the United States at launch, with plans to expand to additional countries later in the year. Sales will be conducted through Apple’s website and a select number of Apple Store locations nationwide.
Due to the personalized adjustments required for each customer’s headset and lenses, details on this process are yet to be disclosed by Apple. Queries on this matter directed to Apple have not yielded information as of now.
The pricing for the Apple Vision Pro has been public knowledge for some time, remaining at $3,499 before the addition of accessories. The package includes a Solo Knit Band, Dual Loop Band, Light Seal, two Light Seal Cushions, Apple Vision Pro Cover, Polishing Cloth, Battery, USB-C Charge Cable, and a USB-C Power Adapter.
Lenses, catering to both “readers” and prescription needs, are available at $99 and $149, respectively.
This groundbreaking product marks Apple’s entry into the headset market, presenting a high-specification VR headset with external sensors and an impressive 23 million pixels across dual displays, ensuring a top-tier mixed-reality experience.
Powered by a custom dual-chip Apple Silicon design (M2 chip for application processing and R1 chip for headset-specific tasks), the Apple Vision Pro allows users to seamlessly transition between fully immersive experiences and environments that blend with the real world using the Digital Crown.
Unique features include the ability to create a digital representation, called a Persona, for FaceTime calls and applications. The innovative EyeSight feature showcases the user’s eyes on the external display, providing an indication of their attention and enhancing the social aspect of wearing the headset.
