Apple Vision Pro Delivery Dates Slip to Mid-March

Delivery dates for orders of Apple's Vision Pro headset have already slipped to mid-March after pre-orders opened earlier today.

Vision Pro Pre Orders Feature 2
The Vision Pro launches in the United States on Friday, February 2, but those now placing an online pre-order will not receive the headset until around the middle of March for all three storage capacities. This delivery time frame is likely to get pushed back even further as more people place orders.

Apple could have some in-store stock available for in-person purchase on Friday, February 2, as well as in subsequent days and weeks as stores receive new deliveries for walk-in buyers, but supply is still highly likely to be limited. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently reported that only 80,000 headsets would be available for the device's launch and warned that the device could quickly sell out.

Buuuuuuut everyone said it was going to be a huge flop, and nobody would want it!
It's just the fanboys - of which I am one (1TB Vision Pro ordered immediately). The Apple cult is still quite strong so the initial sell-out I think is expected - the long lasting success of the product will take a bit longer to determine.

TBH for casual buyers, I'd really recommend waiting at least for the 2nd iteration as Apple will need time to iron out the kinks. The software ecosystem also needs time to really mature.

Early Apple adopters like me are really just guinea pigs (to be clear, I'm totally happy being one).

Got 3. 2 to sell and 1 to keep, hopefully paid for by the profits from the first 2.

Worst case they get returned and I get to play around with one at home for a few weeks before sending them back. Zero risk.
bruh, nobody cares. clearly, you don't have a moral compass.

I think all those pessimists meant no human would buy it. Perhaps dogs & cats want to virtually go outside for a pee? ;)

As is often the case in the Appleverse, if one person doesn't want something... sees no use in something... can't grasp any use case... etc, NOBODY else could possibly see it any different than that one person. Apparently "think different" means see it only as "I" see it... aka do NOT think any different than "me" as I can't see it any other way "myself." Oh and if you try to push your own view of something and it differs from "mine," you are simply wrong, sadly mistaken or a blind brand fanboy or troll (depending on which way "I" see any given matter).

And surveys of 1 (themselves) readily translates to the classic "99% don't want..." statistic.

Hopefully all those dogs & cats with means get to enjoy frolicking in sunny meadows all over the world during this cold, dreary winter. ;)

Hard to know if it’s actually selling to people who want it or scalpers hoping to double their money. We couldn’t get a retail priced PlayStation 5 for a year because of sh*t like this.
