Apple is gearing up to start mass shipments of its new mixed-reality headset, the Vision Pro. This big move is expected to happen in the first week of January. The company plans to ship around 500,000 units of the Vision Pro, marking one of its most significant product launches in recent years.
The Vision Pro is likely to be available in Apple Stores by late January or early February. Initially, Apple had suggested an early 2024 release, but recent reports indicate it might be available a bit sooner.
Apple is increasing production of the Vision Pro at its factories in China, preparing for a launch by February. The company has been manufacturing the headset at full capacity for several weeks.
Apple has reached out to software developers, encouraging them to test their apps with the new headset and provide feedback. Additionally, Apple Store staff are being trained to demonstrate the Vision Pro effectively to potential customers.
One major talking point is the Vision Pro’s price – a hefty $3,499. This cost might deter many potential buyers. There are rumors of a cheaper version being developed, but it might take some time before it’s available.
- Apple’s Vision Pro sets a new standard in the mixed-reality headset market with its advanced features and stylish design.
- The high price tag, however, raises questions about its accessibility to a broader audience.
- The potential cancellation of a more affordable version of the Vision Pro could impact its market reach.
