At $499, the Vision Pro's optional support and service plan is one of the costliest available on any Apple device. This is in line with high-end Mac models at a similar price point to the Vision Pro, which costs $3,499.

‌AppleCare‌+ for the Vision Pro includes unlimited repairs for accidental damage protection, Apple-certified service and support, Express Replacement Service (the company will ship you a replacement so you don't have to wait for a repair), and 24/7 priority access to "Apple experts."

The pricing of ‌AppleCare‌+ for the Vision Pro was not clear until pre-orders opened earlier today. The Vision Pro launches in the U.S. on Friday, February 2.

This is definitely not the same Apple from decades ago when Steve Jobs was at the helm.

Not saying that's a bad thing; in fact overall Apple is great... but $500 for something you'll statistically never use, WOW.
Definitely a money grab. They know the target audience has deep enough pockets so why not

And by "express" apple means 4 days, speaking from experience!
And dont forget, BEFORE they send you a replacement you have to draw your creditcard again.
And once MORE pay the total amount, before they send you a 'free' replacement.
But they do promise you get you second payment back when they recieved your old set, within 5 days.
In my case that was 24 days.

Nobody is forced to subscribe to Apple Care. If it's not worth it for you, just skip it

I spent much less for my mac studio that costed almost twice the vision pro...
Does you Mac Studio include super high resolution screens and all the other things the AVP has? The cost of the Applecare+ is high because it's going to cost Apple much more to repair. That's how insurance works.

Incredible. That kind of money could buy an Apple Watch or iPad. I wonder if Apple thinks the Vision Pro will be prone to breakage.
