Come along as I go over the features, performance, design, and overall impact of the Apple Vision Pro on the wearable technology scene in this in-depth Apple Vision Pro Review.

Release Date, Price, and Accessories

The Apple Vision Pro will launch on February 2 and is currently available for pre-order. Although this headset starts at an eye-watering $3,499, it may be able to track your eyes with amazing precision. With 256GB of storage, the base model costs $3,699 for 512GB and $3,899 for 1TB.

Put on eyeglasses? Prescription lenses cost $149 and the ZEISS optical inserts for readers cost $99, but I do like how easily they magnetically attach to the Vision Pro. For an extra $499, you can get two years of limitless repairs and damage protection with Apple Care+.

Although there are many accessories available, I highly suggest the $199 travel case because it protects the Vision Pro whether you’re traveling by plane or simply going to and from the office. It’s large and bulky. The Belkin battery holder, which costs $49.00, is an extra accessory.

What’s in the Box?

The Light Seal customized for your face, the Light Seal Cushion, the Solo Knit Band, and the Dual Loop Band are all included in the rather large box that holds the Apple Vision Pro headset. In addition, there’s a 30W USB-C power adapter, a second, thicker Light Seal Cushion, a polishing cloth, and the Apple Vision Pro battery, which is permanently attached to the headset.

Performance

Although Apple positioned the stereo audio pod headphones on the rigid white rubber stems that connect to the Vision Pro frame, they still offer superb spatial audio that is on par with or better than in-ear headphones. The audio will originate from the virtual left space where you place an app.

I once carefully dragged a video screen from one side of my room to the other while it was playing, and the audio tracked flawlessly from my left side to the middle and then to the right. Additionally, there is a six-microphone array that is effective at picking up “Siri” commands. Because Siri is represented as a tiny floating glass orb in the Vision Pro, I adore calling her.

You can also poke at a virtual keyboard that is displayed on the Vision Pro in space. Although you can adjust the size and position of this to your preference, using it is at best challenging due to the absence of tactile and physical feedback. Even worse, the gaze control system won’t be able to assist you with accuracy because you might not be looking at the keyboard when you type.

To be honest, I’m a horrible touch-typist and frequently glance at the keyboard as I work. In the end, I find that using the Magic Keyboard that Apple sent me—along with a Magic Mouse that can function on both visionOS and the virtual display on my connected MacBook Pro—is the most convenient way for me to type within visionOS while wearing the headset.

Battery

It’s not ideal that you have to carry the Vision Pro’s aluminum battery around all the time to use the headset. It will therefore need to be placed in your pocket while standing or beside you while seated. It weighs 12.4 ounces, which is more than the 7.8 ounces of the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Even though the cord is usually long enough, you run the risk of unintentionally pulling the battery off a table or couch and onto the floor if you suddenly move while fully engrossed in a game or other experience.

Regarding endurance, the battery life of the Vision Pro is rated for 2.5 hours of video playback and 2 hours of general use. During two hours of on-and-off use, the Vision Pro dropped to roughly 60% and then to 40% after a few more hours.

It’s annoying that there are still restrictions even after all that effort. Of course, I want a $500 headset that weighs less than 1 pound or 500 grams and integrates the battery in some way. Not even Apple’s cutting-edge version of the state of the art is there yet. But none of that diminishes my opinion of the Vision Pro. This incredible technological and industrial design feat makes the mysterious realms of mixed reality, virtual reality, and augmented reality accessible to a wide audience.

With its abundance of features, the Vision Pro is a promising new computing platform. Apple’s efforts are evident in the fact that it accomplishes so many tasks with such excellence and that they make sense and function. The level of detail and the seamless integration of a cutting-edge, V1 product have been astounding to me. I’m dying to wear Apple’s new Vision Pro headset almost every day if I could just work in it. It would completely change my life.

Although I’ve always wanted a workspace that is 150 inches or bigger, I couldn’t see how it would be useful or, more importantly, observable. I wish I could never go back to my laptop’s cramped space because the Vision Pro gives me an almost infinite desktop.

Seldom have I tested a piece of technology that has affected me as much as the Vision Pro. Because spatial videos are so intensely realistic, they elicit feelings in the viewer instantly that a flat image might not. It is both startling and exhilarating to be up close and personal with otherworldly or prehistoric creatures that appear to almost see me.

More than fantastic software, apps, developers, and artists are needed to make this work; you also need a well-thought-out system to make it all work together. With 23 million pixels of imagery, spatial audio that carries over from band-bound speakers straight to your ears, and eye-tracking that recognizes your gaze more accurately than you, the Vision Pro consistently delivers.

Conclusion

Apple Vision Pro offers a well-balanced combination of performance, functionality, and style, marking a paradigm shift in the field of eyewear. These glasses will make an impression whether you’re a tech enthusiast, fashionista, or just someone trying to see the world in a different light. The future of eyewear has never looked better, even as we eagerly await Apple’s next big innovation.
