Apple Vision Pro pre-orders are live, and Apple is releasing a 10-minute “guided tour” video for it

Apple today began taking pre-orders for its first “spatial computer,” the Vision Pro headset. It will become available, as previously announced, on February 2.

With the pre-order page come more details about the headset, but let’s start with the price. It’s priced at $3,499 with 256GB of storage, $3,699 with 512GB, or $3,899 with 1TB. You can get all editions with one-year financing through monthly installments from Apple Card.

AppleCare+ for Vision Pro is $499 and gives you unlimited repairs for accidental damage protection, Express Exchange Service, and priority access to Apple experts 24/7. Before pre-ordering, you need to get a measurement for the light seal and headband, and for this you need an iPhone or iPad with Face ID. Then, you can add two types of Zeiss optical inserts depending on your vision — reader inserts cost $99, and prescription inserts cost $149.

To help people get familiar with this brand-new product in its portfolio, Apple produced a roughly 10-minute video that is a “guided tour” of the Vision Pro. there he is:


Now, in the box, you get the headphone itself, a double-loop band, a cover, a battery, a light sealing pad, a polishing cloth, a USB-C charging cable, and — you won’t believe this — the actual charger. So now we’re scratching our heads – if an iPhone starts at $3,499, will Apple then afford to bundle a charger with it? Or will she suddenly stop caring about the environment by doing so “wastefully”? We’ll probably never know unless inflation really gets out of control.

Let’s dive into the specifications. The headset is powered by an M2 chip with an 8-core CPU with 4 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores, a 10-core GPU, a 16-core neural engine, and 16GB of unified memory. The proprietary R1 chip delivers a photon-to-photon latency of 12 ms with a memory bandwidth of 256 GB/s.

Speaking of photons, the displays support 90Hz, 96Hz, and 100Hz refresh rates, with 24fps and 30fps video playback. The micro OLED panels cover 92% of the DCI-P3 color space with a pixel pitch of 7.5 microns and 23 million total pixels. You can use AirPlay to stream your show in Vision Pro to any device that supports AirPlay.

The Vision Pro has two high-resolution main cameras, six global tracking cameras, four eye-tracking cameras, a LiDAR scanner, four inertial measurement units, a flicker sensor, and an ambient light sensor. Additionally, you get iris-based biometrics, six microphones, spatial audio, and there’s Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.3 on board.

Battery life is 2 hours of “general use” and 2.5 hours of video watching. You can also use the headphone while charging. The Vision Pro weighs between 600 and 650 grams (the difference is due to the different light seal and headband configurations available). The separate battery weighs 353 grams.
