Apple Store App Will Use Face Scan to Determine Apple Vision Pro Size

The Apple Store app will use a facial scan to provide customers with information on the correct Vision Pro component sizes they need to order, according to code found by MacRumors contributor Aaron Perris. The Vision Pro requires an appropriately sized Light Seal and Head Band in order to operate as intended.

"You may scan your face to determine your size for Apple Vision Pro," reads code in the ‌Apple Store‌ app.

Apple has already been using a Head Measure and Fit app to help developers testing the Vision Pro to find their correct sizes, so it sounds like similar functionality will be built directly into the App Store. Light Seals and Head Bands come in several sizes, and the option to use a scan to determine a size suggests that customers will not need to visit an Apple retail store to determine the right fit. A facial scan is likely to be part of the process of ordering the Vision Pro online.

The Vision Pro will ship with both a Solo Knit Band and a Dual Loop Band, the latter of which has a second strap that goes over the head to more evenly distribute weight. A Light Seal and two Light Seal Cushions are included as well. Customers who need prescription lens inserts from ZEISS will be able to import their prescriptions from the Health app or upload their prescription.

Code also suggests that Apple may allow the Vision Pro to be engraved, but it is not clear where an engraving might be able to be located.

Apple plans to launch the Vision Pro on Friday, February 2, but pre-orders for the device will begin on Friday, January 19 at 5:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

I assume it's going to use the rear camera since lidar is necessary to get an accurate measurement.

Good thing it says „MAY“ cuz otherwise this thing will never be sold here in Germany. PRIVACY
The scan doesn’t GO anywhere. It’s detecting your sizing on-device to choose from a limited set of sizes. It’s not uploading your face for molded components.

That sounds a lot like when people thought iPads would get separate user accounts.
It’s already ahead of the iPad in that category.

Exactly what I was thinking. Is Apple seriously thinking every member of the house is going to buy separate $3500 headsets?
Since there's only going to be 80,000 for sale next Friday, I'd say no. The is a first-of-its-kind, first generation product not meant for the mass audience. This is for early adopters that gets them sufficient revenue to cover small portions of the 10 years+ of R&D Apple put into this product. It's also for Apple to see who uses what and how. Early adopters can be considered beta testers, essentially. The next version is for a wider audience and probably won't have a "Pro" moniker. But the next version will probably have a lot of plastic, no 4K per eye microLED screens, and will be missing many other features the Pro has. Or maybe the mass market version will be a set of glasses rather than a headset.

New technology has to start somewhere. The first folding phone cost twice the price of flagship phones for little benefit and still is at least 50% more expensive after five years. Very few people bought them initially. Expect spatial computing devices to continue to cost a lot for several more iterations until it becomes common.
