Here's a First In-Person Look at the Apple Vision Pro

Following the keynote event, Apple began allowing members of the press to get a quick look at the Apple Vision Pro headset in person. Apple has several demonstration areas set up, but as of right now, media attendees can only see the device and aren't able to try it out.

The headset has a futuristic, sleek look, with Apple mounting the devices on stands to give the media a closer look. The external battery pack can be clearly seen connected to the headset through a cable at the side of the device.


Design wise, the headset is not unlike a pair of ski goggles, featuring a wrap-around display that's held against the face by a soft mesh and a seal that keeps out the light. The headband is made from a soft, braided material that's meant to be comfortable to wear for longer periods of time.

There is no word yet on whether media attendees will be given a chance to test out the headset today or later this week, but there is a good chance that we'll soon be seeing some first impressions.


Apple's Vision Pro headset will not be available for purchase until early 2024, and it will be incredibly expensive at $3,499.

If I have one hope for Vision Pro it's a return to landscape video...

I thought this was DOA ('https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/apple-mixed-reality-headset-rumored-to-cost-1-500-to-manufacture.2389951/post-32174986'). I was wrong. I think this is revolutionary. It’s not a VR device like I imagined. It’s an AR device.

I could totally see myself buying this or buying a future version.

I work a lot while traveling. One of my main issues is not having a big external monitor when I’m away from home. This solves that problem for me and integrates with my MacBook Pro.

Also, the $3500 price tag is fine. Just think of it as buying an M2 Mac, a 3D 100” OLED screen and an iPhone in one.

I’m excited to see this in person and excited for the second version. I’m betting that by version 3, it will be purchased by the masses. The first one is obviously aimed at developers.

Overtime, it will get more powerful, lighter, longer battery life, and cheaper. It will eventually have a great non-pro version for the masses.

Congratulations @Dan Barbera on finally getting a selfie with Tim Cook.

I want to see Tim Cook wearing Apple Vision Pro. He should have demonstrated it.

Might look a bit strange right now and this might sound silly to say, but I predict this is going to be a game changer in how many of us interact with computers. This is bigger than just another Apple product.

HELP! This is URGENT. Will this $3,500 device come with a calculator app? Unlike the iPad? I NEED to know!
