Apple has finally lifted the curtain on launch and pricing details for their highly anticipated Vision Pro augmented reality headset. Vision Pro will cost $3,499 for the 256GB model and pre-orders will kick off on January 19th at 8am EST, ahead of the official February 2nd launch day.
When the Vision Pro hits shelves on February 2nd, it will be available at all Apple retail stores across the United States, in addition to online ordering through Apple’s website. This wide release marks the first major consumer push into spatial computing and XR from Apple.
The Vision Pro package includes two adjustable headbands – the Solo Knit and Dual Loop – to ensure a comfortable fit. It also comes with two Light Seal Cushions, a Protective Cover, Polishing Cloth, Battery, Charging Cable and Power Adapter.
For those needing prescription lens inserts, ZEISS Optical Inserts will sell separately for $149. Non-prescription readers will be priced more affordably at $99.
Apple unveiled the two different headband styles, with the Solo Knit being the minimal strap shown at previous events. The new Dual Loop design has an additional top strap to prevent the headset from slipping. While bulker, the Dual Loop may offer a more secure fit for extended use.
The Vision Pro features innovative eye and hand tracking, spatial audio, and vivid XR visuals via dual 4K OLED displays. Powered by Apple’s visionOS and the A16 chip, it promises to revolutionize spatial computing in a consumer-friendly package.
With pre-orders just weeks away, hype is building for the Vision Pro’s long-awaited launch. The $3,499 price tag positions it as a premium device, but Apple’s ecosystem and user experience could make it the AR headset to beat. The wait is nearly over for consumers eager to dive into this new frontier of technology.
