The $3499 mixed reality headset from Apple is now officially available to pre-order and will start shipping from February 2.
People waiting to get their hands on Apple Vision Pro can book their unit right now. The much-awaited mixed reality headset can be ordered through its website and stores across the country.
Apple CEO Tim Cook shared this information on microblogging website X (formerly Twitter).
Since its announcement of Vision Pro at WWDC 2023, the company has been working with developers to build hundreds of apps to provide an immersive experience.
Interested buyers need to scan their face using the Face ID on an iPhone or iPad when pre-ordering to ensure a precise band fit. The headphone is designed with a modular system so it can be customized to fit the users perfectly. All the accessories need to be the right size for the mixed-reality headset to work as advertised.
The base storage option of 256GB will start from $3499 and will go up to $3899 for the 1TB variant. The 512GB version will come at a price of $3699.
Apart from the storage, people may also need to pay more if they need vision correction. Apple is giving the users the option to add Zeiss optical inserts when they pre-order so they won’t need to wear the glasses inside. These inserts will cost from $99 to $149 and the users have to provide an updated official prescription with their order to purchase them.
The $3499 headset features an aluminum alloy frame with a laminated glass front and has high-quality 4K micro-OLED displays with 23 million pixels combined. For tracking eye movements precisely, it features more than a dozen cameras.
The order box will contain the Vision Pro headset, a headband, and a battery pack. The battery needs to stay attached to the device when in use. It also ships with a charger, a cover for the light seal, and a protective case. To pre-order the Apple Vision Pro, head over to the Apple website.
