Apple Vision Pro has an astonishing amount of technology in a compact design. A singular piece of three-dimensionally formed and laminated glass is polished to create an optical surface that acts as a lens for the wide array of cameras and sensors needed to blend the physical world with digital content. The glass flows into the custom aluminum alloy frame that gently curves around the user’s face, while the modular system allows for a tailored fit to accommodate a wide range of people. The Light Seal is made of a soft textile, and comes in a range of shapes and sizes, flexing to conform to a user’s face for a precise fit. Flexible straps ensure audio remains close to the user’s ears, while a Head Band — available in multiple sizes — is three-dimensionally knitted as a single piece to provide cushioning, breathability, and stretch.1 The band is secured with a simple mechanism, making it easy to change to another size or style of band.

Inside View of Apple Vision Pro

Unmatched Hardware Innovation

The Apple Vision Pro stands out for its exceptional computational power packaged within a sleek, wearable design. It showcases a state-of-the-art ultra-high-resolution display system, powered by an Apple silicon chip, employing micro-OLED technology to achieve an astonishing 23 million pixels within two displays, each comparable in size to a postage stamp. These displays boast a broad color spectrum and high dynamic range, setting a new standard in visual technology. Coupled with bespoke catadioptric lenses, Vision Pro offers unparalleled sharpness and clarity, ensuring users experience truly immersive visuals. For those requiring vision correction, Vision Pro incorporates ZEISS Optical Inserts, guaranteeing both impeccable visual quality and precise eye-tracking capabilities.

Central to the Apple Vision Pro experience is its sophisticated Spatial Audio system, designed to immerse users in sound that feels as though it is emanating from their immediate surroundings, perfectly harmonizing the audio with the spatial context. This system features two amplified drivers in each audio pod, offering Personalized Spatial Audio tailored to the unique contours of the user’s head and ears. This customization ensures a deeply immersive audio experience, making it feel as if the soundscapes are interacting naturally with the environment around the user.

Featuring the most advanced Spatial Audio system ever, Apple Vision Pro creates the feeling that sounds are coming from the environment around the user. Dual-driver audio pods positioned next to each ear deliver personalized sound and adapt to the environment.

The Apple Vision Pro not only introduces a state-of-the-art display and cutting-edge audio capabilities but also features a high-performance eye-tracking system. This system employs high-speed cameras and a circle of LEDs that emit invisible light patterns onto the user’s eyes, facilitating responsive and intuitive control.

These significant technological advances are driven by Apple’s proprietary silicon, utilizing a distinctive dual-chip architecture. The M2 chip offers unparalleled independent performance, while the newly developed R1 chip is tasked with processing inputs from an array of 12 cameras, five sensors, and six microphones. This ensures that digital content not only feels but also appears as if it is unfolding directly before the user’s eyes, in real-time. Remarkably, the R1 chip is capable of refreshing images on the display within 12 milliseconds—eight times quicker than the blink of an eye.

Designed for continuous operation when connected to power, the Apple Vision Pro also supports up to two hours of autonomous operation with its external, high-capacity battery, accommodating a wide range of activities and environments—from engaging conversations at home while seated on the steps to seamlessly integrating with a computer for work tasks.

Apple Vision Pro typing behavior

Apple Vision Pro sets a new standard in privacy and security, ensuring that users have full control over their personal data. It introduces Optic ID, an innovative secure authentication system that uses iris recognition. This system operates by analyzing a user’s iris with different exposures to invisible LED light, then matching it against the Optic ID data stored securely in the device’s Secure Enclave to instantly unlock the device. Optic ID data is thoroughly encrypted, inaccessible to any applications, and remains exclusively on the device—never uploaded to Apple’s servers.

Privacy is also paramount when users navigate the Apple Vision Pro. Eye tracking data is kept confidential, not shared with Apple, third-party applications, or websites. Additionally, camera and sensor data are processed on the system level, meaning apps can enable spatial experiences without accessing images or information about a user’s environment. EyeSight technology further enhances privacy by including a visual indicator to notify others when the user is capturing spatial photos or videos.

In terms of pricing and availability, the Apple Vision Pro is priced starting at $3,499 in the U.S. It will be available early next year through and at Apple Store locations across the U.S., with availability in additional countries to follow later in the year. Customers can visit Apple Store locations to learn more about the Vision Pro, experience it firsthand, and customize their fit.
