    Even if I could afford this, I would still wait for the second gen model. The battery would probably see an improvement and there would be broader app support by then.

      why even care about battery? it has a battery pack, just buy a bigger one or an expansion for it. if you are just gonna use it while sitting on a sofa and not moving around, buy a massive 40 thousand mah with a long enough cable and just leave it on a desk or on the floor. Or buy multiple batteries and switch when they run low.

      Yeah, But the second gen won’t come out for years… they’re not going to update it after a year like an iPhone. Also, you can use it plugged in, so the battery isn’t as big of a problem. I mean I personally wouldn’t walk around with that thing on my head lol

      That’s basically the point of this, it’s essentially a productized developer kit. They aren’t expecting to sell millions, they just need devs to get their foot in the door so when the tech catches up and they can release a comparable non-pro version for ~1k it will have been ironed out with tons of app support.
      All the leaked production numbers show they’re only trying to make something like 500k units and that development on the non-pro consumer version is already well underway.

    The popularity of Vision Pro mostly relies on third party app development interest. There's a reason why not many games were ported to Mac OS, and that is the size of target consumers not being big enough for the development to be justifiable. It's still a new tech, and Apple should really focus on making a lower cost version in the coming years to trigger mass adoption.

      I agree, but I do think that there’s two kind of “people” that will buy this = early adopters/Apple fans, and corporations willing to give mixed reality a go in their offices. Apple really sold its usability in the professional space; this isn’t an amateur’s tool, so it’s not priced like one.
      If we think about other headsets, they’re aimed specifically at gaming and not much else. Honestly, it would be awesome to see Sony expand the usability of its own VR headset, with that said.

      Not really, apple can pull it off 50% of the way just like the iPad, right now the biggest interest of it is to expand screens across the MacBook in any place, there is no 3rd party need there.

    Reminds me of the first apple watch when they even brought a gold apple watch. And they put all kinds of things between hardware and software and they slowly but surely positioned the product as a health and fitness device.

    • j1000a
      j1000a 3 місяці тому +19

      The gold watch was an irrelevant niche variant. These goggles are $3,500 for the main product. The best comparison here is the Lisa. Wait for the "Mac" headset instead.

    • Tatiana ES
      Tatiana ES 3 місяці тому +1

      @j1000a NOT sure how good the device would be “macified”, meaning Apple Vision without the “Pro”. It all makes sense only with the components this good. This means that Apple will probably only sell Vision Pro in 2024, and then move the device to become Vision model in 2025, while introducing an upgraded device as Vision Pro.

    • Tatiana ES
      Tatiana ES 3 місяці тому +1

      The main positioning here is a giant high-resolution, HDR and wide gamut stereo/3D screen with truly surround sound. For now, however, if you have $3.6K to buy thing thing, you can already buy a real giant screen and a real surround audio system for $$5-10K. The only advantage of Vision is that it is 3D, but there is not a lot of video content for this. The big change might come when Vision will cost like $600, but by then giant TVs will also become cheaper.

    • Der Birra

    This looks amazing but also terrifying. One thing that I think is VERY important for future models is to be able to connect to other people's devices so that you really can see and share the same experiences. It would be cool if a friend could see exactly what you are seeing. I don't mean just like a screen copy thing but your headset projecting something into 3D space that appears in the exact space for them as it does for you. I'm not very good at explaining this how I imagine it, but my biggest fear with this is that it will isolate people even more. If they can design and upgrade it in a way that somehow promotes more human interaction then I think that will be a win.
    Whether this is successful or not, this eventually is the future. It's important to address the social issues early on because if people get to used to it without these social features, they won't want/need them later

  • The other "No" dude
    The other "No" dude 3 місяці тому +54

    Without a doubt something much cheaper is on the horizon. The hefty price is probably coming from the fact that this is an “early adopters” product + the “Apple premium”
    Can’t wait for this to advance so much that it’ll look like literal thin ski goggles and more aligned to something you can wear everyday and doesn’t look ridiculous in public. It’s definitely going to happen, just needs time.

    • Major Mononoke

    3rd party Developer access is huge and is mainly what a device like this rides on. Being as widespread as Apple is I can really see this taking off in the next few years. Just imagine organisations funding development of apps used for medicine, engineering, etc.. This could be huge not because the tech is anything new, but because of its ease of use and potential wide app variety.
    Only thing right now though is that price tag, yikes 😬 nonetheless, many people will still buy it

    Apple's Vision Pro headset looks sleek and packed with advanced technology. The blend of augmented reality and virtual reality is exciting, but the high price point may deter some potential buyers. It'll be interesting to see how it competes with the more affordable options in the market. Impressive innovation from Apple!

      I believe the main purpose of releasing these goggles is to further facilitate to their image… which is really what people buy into at the end of the day, even if they aren’t buying these goggles specifically. The simplistic, stylish, borderline designer ‘sphere’ of products has evidently made a lot of heads turn since the iPhone. A great example is the addition of the Apple Watch, or AirPods Max. The ideas aren’t new, or timeless. The functionality isn’t a necessity in any scenario, but the rounded corners (both metaphorically and physically), the concepts, the class, is what we are buying into repeatedly. Similar to how an artist will create a unique atmosphere in an album for people to be enthralled by, and pulled into using a variation of covers and sounds, Apple has created a unique lineup of products, all adhering to an image, for us *to believe*

      @James Pendergrass I watched the event and my mind was blown away at how many unique and revolutionary features the vision pro offers. And i have a Vive and a Quest 2 and from someone having used both of those for many years i will have to say that Vision Pro is leaps and bounds ahead of everyone else after watching the event. And it's sad that people think it's overpriced, i thought its going to be $4,999. Lastly the Vision Pro is at the same price as the Holo Lens $3500. And Holo Lens just pissed its pants.

Its a standalone device and im assuming many people will buy it during the wait for release. I use a 360hz monitor normally so thats my standard.. and the quest 2 is my only vr headset i got rn, all i needed and is very impressive for the cost, fr.

    I'll need to see people using it to get a feel of the experience but at this point, and that price, it'll be hard sell, ironically because of Apple.
    The experience of using this needs to be amazing and useful enough that someone would forgo buying a MacBook Air, iPhone and Airpods Max for one of these. So far, I'm not convinced. Looks cool tho.

      I get why people think that’s kinda funny/ironic, but it’s really about eye strain when focusing on a screen too close. VR lenses make it so you’re not focusing on something up close. That’s why us nearsighted people still need prescription lenses to see anything with the headset on.

If you want our first AR/VR Dev kit you can have it for 3499$. This device is super slick and nice but after all is a AR/VR dev kit. The price considering the tech in it is reasonable but it's not a mainstream device. Still a lovely tech demo.

    Just wanted to say for the record, this thing’s displays are a total of 23 megapixels.
    The HTC Vive Pro 2, the highest resolution VR headset for home use, only has about 12.
    It’ll be the highest resolution VR headset to date. Even more that the current highest headset, the Varjo VR-3 with about 16 megapixels.
    This is most likely one of the main reasons why this thing is so expensive.
    In VR, resolution is one of the single biggest factors in the quality of the experience.

    • BertoBeats
      BertoBeats 3 місяці тому +13

      ​@Ashr. The screen is right up in front of your eye, and the highest resolution on the market. The pixel density is phenomenal, but no one in the public has tried it to know whether it will have any noticeable pixel separation or not. My guess is it will be absolutely miniscule, almost unnoticeable.
      Edit: I should say I've done a ton of VR development, usually around 1440p per eye. This produces a decent amount of "screen door effect" but you pretty quickly get used to it. That's about 4.6 megapixels. This is 23.

    • Erioch Stomp

      How did you calculate that? Most specs are reporting the vive pro 2 to have 6 megapixels not 12.
      Edit: oh in total. Ok 12mp, but realistically each eye sees only 6. And that would put the Vision pro at about 11mp.

    While I will admit there is sticker shock, I think when you look at other VR/AR headsets it is a fair price. For the uninitiated in VR, this Vision Pro is touting 23 million pixels with micro oled which will help immensely with picture clarity. For reference:
    Meta Quest 3 ($500) = 9.1 million LCD
    Valve Index ($1000) = 4.6 million LCD
    Pimax Vision 8K X ($1300) = 16.5 million LCD
    Varjo Aero ($2000) = 15.6 million mini LED
    And only the first option has software to run on it's own like the Vision Pro.

    There's a huge amount of serious technology here. I don't think I will be an early adopter, but it's not because of the price. Just imagine how much you would pay for a big screen OLED TV and realize that this is that plus a heck of a lot more. I will wait for second or third generation. I am an anesthesiologist - the possibility of using this as a heads-up monitoring display in the OR or other medical applications - is very intriguing. This will be a huuuuuge product.

      @Kamil ​​⁠​⁠​⁠Even with displays that have half the fidelity of passthrough it's rarely an issue (varjo 3 is a good example, it's already at the point where its passthrough looks almost identical to reality, and Vision Pro is supposed to be even better), and if the IPD is automatic and the focal length is adjustable then all it should need is good software to keep things running smoothly. Even if this doesn't convince you, then it's not like it should matter since the battery only lasts 2 hours anyways, you basically HAVE to take breaks to charge it so no time for long-term brain-fuckery.

  • versionfiv

    Google Glass was a product often avoided by consumers for one reason or another. Maybe it was the steep $1,500 asking price? There are two major reasons why the product failed from the consumer perspective, and the first was the design. At the time, Glass looked rather clunky. While a newer version did improve the design, it wasn't enough to make a huge difference in sales. The second reason is the concerns consumers had about the product possibly collecting data from users or being vulnerable to hacking from outsiders.
    that's equivalent to $1950 today. and apple wants twice as much, after taxes.
    And no no no there's nothing invasive to one's privacy about having your face 3d scanned by a huge multinational corporation with foundations in china.

    The initial versions of these will all be way too expensive for most consumers, of course, but this is where the entire market is going now. VR is largely DOA but AR clearly has a very bright future ahead of it. Why pay for a 65" traditional TV when you can just get a AR headset that will let you have multiple 120" screens inside of the headset that you can take with you wherever you go. This is going to be the future of both computing and movie/TV watching. Expect to see the big TV makers get into this market here soon in a very big way. Sony is already there in their Playstation lineup so they will likely be first to market in the TV space. All of the others will soon follow though, you can bet on that.

      Sadly don't think the benefits of M3 will fix this since they will keep the same node and just include last year A chip advancements that aren't even full spec of cortex v9 (which btw, apple have their own solutions, some even somewhat better but still, it needs full specs, this is an issue for a while now :/).

      If you're an Apple fan with a limited budget, you should not be buying this at all. If you have a maximum unlimited budget and are very well off financially, sure, go ahead and buy it. You'll make it cheap for all of us in the future even if we don't go with Apple. But if you're an Apple fan with a limited budget, wait until this is on its third gen. The thing has only 2h of battery life 3rd gen is going to have 8 hours of battery life it will be way way better in three generations. 1st gen products always are not that great. Second gen is just a slight improvement. Most of the time the third generation is where they revamp it a tad and the battery life is solid

The display in total is 4k? And what about the pixel density which matters more? also no mention of fov which is arguably the most important factor in the headset.
      Seems extremely overpriced like most apple products. You could find better VR headsets at half the price, take the big screen beyond for example, incredibly high resolution, with the best form factor in the entire market, probably less than half the size of the vision pro, using a custom 3d scanned face pad, still only 1000$.
      This headset can literally do nothing to justify the price difference it has with the rest of the MR market. Nevertheless uninformed apple fanboys will still buy it.

      @unbornG4 yeah, also m processors don't really change that much per year. M2 is only 30% faster than m1 was, and it's not worth it to upgrade a $3500 device every year, for just a 30% improvement in performance, and I'm sure it's powerful enough for most apps, if you need more, just connect it to a Mac, or stream and control your high end windows computer.
      I think lenses are the only major improvement they can realistically provide in 2/3 years, but right now the ones they are using (pancake lenses) are quite new and there's nothing soon replacing it.

    Well lets say the Vision Pro does get the 3rd party app support it needs to success... feel that the bottleneck of this headset's growth is the fact that it's locked in the apple ecosystem. Who's to say a use-case that the headset's average consumer is a feature Apple wouldn't be able to provide because it would break the proprietary nature of the Apple ecosystem?
    I mean a simply solution would be to expand the bounds of the ecosystem but we've seen historically that Apple has been incredibly resistant to that.

    I think unlike any other devices, vr/ar headsets are the most difficult to grasp an idea what it truly is like using them.
    I was not sure if I would like trying Oculus Quest 2 when I bought one (it was my first vr headset). It had limited hardware and software experience, and honestly felt like an interesting toy at best. But at the end it allowed me to see the glimpse of what will truly be possible in the future.
    When I see comment sections, there are so many people, who I assume they have never tried VR headsets, being skeptical as to why bothering to wear chunky headset on your face just to look things a little bigger.
    I don't think simply watching things on a bigger screen can define VR/MR experience. The feeling of looking at things 1:1 size is just something different. To be really immersed in a different worlds, even with the limited capability of Quest 2, made me very enthusiased about what'll come next. It's something you'll never understand until you actually try it yourself.
    Every new techology receives skepticism by people who only think about negatives it brings as it is hard to fathom the positives until it is actually there.
    iPhones, iPads, Airpods received a lot of doubts and snarks when they came out.
    "Airpods look ridiculous. No one will want to wear it in public"
    "My blackberry can do everything iPhone does"
    "Why should I waste money on a tablet just to look things bigger than iPhone?"
    Those were honestly all fair criticisms but they were quickly drowned out because the positives those devices brought, the level of immersion and convinience they brought to people's lives, outweigh the negatives.
    I believe that is true with Apple Vision Pro.
    At it's first iteration, the headset is chunky, looks ridiculous, has external battery you have to carry around, seemingly uninspiring user interface, and is really expensive.
    But the positives, the experience of using an augmented reality headset, will change how we think, and how we live our lives, whether that is a change you'd personally welcome or not.
    New hardware aspires people to come up with new ideas. We lack the ability to imagine when there is no foundation because there is nothing to base our ideas off of.
    We'll have things we had no idea was possible, and didn't even know we wanted, but it will be there and we will live in it.

      The first iPhone was 600$, the cheapest iPhone SE is 430$. Their target is above average, so even if they'll make a cheaper version, I don't see it possible below 2k$. But there will be cheaper competitors, for sure.

    If a virtual screen is projected above a glass tabletop in Augmented Reality (AR) mode, will it be possible to see a reflection of this screen on the surface of the table?

    Simple rule of thumb, on a completely new tech, skip V1, get V2. It will almost always be 2-3x magnitude difference. Think iPhone & iPad version 1 vs the next. There is merit for being early adapter, but beyond that novelty, V2, for what it can really do.

    I'll wager the cheaper version (aka: Apple Vision, not Pro) will ditch the speakers and potentially the hand gesture tracking. That way, you can use your existing AirPods and Apple Pencil 2 to replace those functions, while bringing the overall cost down.
    By that point, early adopters/tech channels will have been (hopefully) blown away by the Pro and have shown a whole bunch of use cases/got rid of bugs.

      Removal of Hand Gesture recognition would be purely artificial, as it most likely hust uses an ai to detect your gestures from camera feed. On the other hand it is just plain useless, apart from maybe watching movies, everything is much more convenient to do on a real screen/tv/computer/iphone.

    The value with headsets today is in the gaming space. Apple is far behind when it comes to gaming. If this could integrate with steam, which Apple would never do, then I could see this being more of a buy. But at $3500 I'd rather just buy an awesome OLED tv with surround sound and a solid laptop.

    The battery should also be a breakout box with HDMI-in. How many console gamers would like a 100+inch screen. It's a fine time to be open while Apple develops their gaming ecosystem!

    The problem with VR is that it's always oversold and always under delivers, will the experience really be like the "glossy promo" or will it be ok-ish..
    The other issue is that VR is great for short periods, in the same way a fairground ride is great for 15 minutes, but would you want to spend hours wearing this, probably not..

      There are already people who spend many hours in VR with less sophisticated headsets. The passthrough and comfort on this one will probably make that more palatable for more people.

    The battery, rather than the price, is the real Achilles heel of this device. Two hours of battery life are simply not enough. Obviously, it is not Apple's fault. Battery technology remains the Achilles heel of many products today.

    From this video, I get the impression this isn't like the Quest at all. The Quest is an accessory to a computer which has its own pros and cons. It seems with Apple Vision, it's the total device, given it has an M2 processor in it and its own OS.
    So while you can use it with an Apple laptop or iPhone etc you don't need to. You could buy this and have it be your only device which is really a different kind of computing device and also explains the price difference.
