Apple Vision Pro: Here's Everything You Get in the Box

Apple has announced the launch date of Apple Vision Pro, its much-touted spatial computing device. The mixed reality headset starts at $3,499 and will go on sale in the U.S. on Friday, February 2, with availability in Canada and the United Kingdom expected to follow later this year.

Apple Vision Pro Dual Loop Band
Apple has not yet revealed all the details about the device's configuration options ahead of pre-orders, which start on Friday, January 19, but we do know what is included in the box with every ‌Apple Vision Pro‌.

  • Vision Pro Headset: The headset is the primary component of the Vision Pro system, featuring advanced eye and hand-tracking technology via cameras, ultra high-resolution displays for each eye, speakers on either side, and an EyeSight front-facing screen. The headset comes with a minimum of 256GB of onboard storage for applications and media.
  • Solo Knit Band and Dual Loop Band: These two types of headband are designed for user comfort and customization. The Solo Knit Band is a single band that wraps around the back of the head, while Apple says the Dual Loop Band features "a pair of adjustable upper and lower straps for a personalized fit."
  • Light Seal: The Light Seal is made of a soft textile and likely comes in a range of shapes and sizes, flexing to conform to the user's face for a precise fit. This accessory helps to block external light, enhancing the immersive experience of the headset.
  • Two Light Seal Cushions: These cushions come supplied in two sizes and provide additional comfort and light-blocking capability, ensuring a snug fit around the face to prevent light leakage.
  • Cover for Front Glass: The cover protects the headset's front glass when not in use, preventing scratches and damage.
  • Polishing Cloth: A soft cloth designed for cleaning the headset's lenses and front glass without causing scratches or damage.
  • Battery Pack: An external power source for the headset, ensuring longer usage times and portability. The battery provides 2 hours of general use and 2.5 hours of 2D video playback on a single charge, according to Apple.
  • USB-C Power Adapter: The adapter is used to charge the headset's battery pack, ensuring the device is always ready for use. It also may enable the Vision Pro to be connected to an external power source for longer periods of use than the portable battery allows, although Apple has yet to confirm this.
  • USB-C Charging Cable: A cable for connecting the headset or the battery pack to the USB-C power adapter for charging.

Apple will offer optional optical inserts for users who normally wear glasses, but these are not included in the packaging and will be a separate purchase starting at $99. Apple is partnering with ZEISS to offer the inserts that can be customized to each person's vision requirements.

The inserts attach to the Vision Pro lenses magnetically, allowing for precise viewing and eye tracking. Glasses wearers will need a valid prescription to get the inserts, but Apple cautions that not all prescriptions will be supported. Optical inserts will be available to order online on Apple's website.

Apple plans to start offering Vision Pro demonstrations at U.S. Apple retail stores on launch day. Apple says that demo times will be offered through the weekend on a first-come, first-served basis, with signups to take place starting at 8:00 a.m. on February 2.

With that price tag, you’d think they would include a carrying case.

Excitement is an understatement when I think about the Vision Pro. I'm making the purchase for sure; however, it's a bit of a gamble, honestly, as I'm not entirely convinced it'll meet all the buzz surrounding it. Yet, there's something about the future of virtual reality that I can't ignore. It's more than just a gadget; it's a glimpse into a world where such tech is woven into the fabric of our everyday lives. That's the possibility I'm investing in and eagerly looking forward to experiencing with this device

They learned their lesson with the AirPods Max.

Apple should throw in a couple of hair ties though.
