Apple unveils the Apple Vision Pro, its first VR headset

The Vision Pro is expected to launch in early 2024, according to Apple.

Apple enters the mixed reality market with its first-ever headset, the Apple Vision Pro. Announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 5, 2023, the Vision Pro is a sleek and powerful device that combines augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) in one.

The Vision Pro is not just a gaming peripheral, but a practical tool for various applications, such as education, entertainment, productivity, and social interaction. It runs on visionOS, a new operating system designed specifically for mixed reality experiences.

What makes the Vision Pro different from other headsets is that it does not require any controllers or external sensors. Instead, it uses advanced eye tracking, hand tracking, and voice input to let users interact with the digital world naturally and intuitively.

It also features a unique design that allows users to see their own eyes on the outer display of the headset. This creates a more realistic and immersive experience, as well as a sense of presence and connection with others.

The Vision Pro boasts impressive specs and performance, thanks to its dual-chip setup. It uses an M2 chip for general computing tasks and a new R1 chip for spatial computing tasks. It also has dual 4K displays that offer high-resolution and high-fidelity visuals.

The headset comes with an external battery pack that can provide up to two hours of continuous use. The battery pack can be attached to the back of the headset or worn as a belt. It also supports wireless charging and fast charging.

The Vision Pro is not a cheap device, however. It starts at $3,499 (around P196,700+)), which makes it more expensive than most laptops and smartphones. Apple says the headset is aimed at developers and professionals who want to create and explore mixed-reality applications.
