Today, Apple issued an official press release, revealing the upcoming market plans for its Vision Pro and sharing more details about the product. According to the announcement, the Vision Pro will be available for pre-order on January 19th and officially go on sale on February 2nd.

Product Features

The Vision Pro features two micro-OLED screens on the front, supporting up to 23 million pixels for display, and incorporates a buffering material named ‘Light Seal’.

In terms of hardware, the Vision Pro is equipped with dual-chip architecture, M2 and R1, and comes with 12 cameras, 5 sensors, and 6 microphones.

As per the updated product page of Vision Pro, it can last up to 2 hours on a single charge under regular usage scenarios.

Operating System and Applications

The device runs on visionOS, Apple’s first spatial operating system, built on the foundations of macOS, iOS, and iPadOS. It features a full 3D interface, controllable through gestures, eye tracking, and voice commands.

Apple states that visionOS will utilize existing developer frameworks, and the new App Store will offer over a million familiar iOS/iPadOS apps. At launch, more than 250 Apple Arcade games and over 150 3D immersive movies will be available on Vision Pro.

Pricing and Availability

The Vision Pro starts at $3499 (approximately 25000 RMB). For the initial rollout, it will be available for purchase both online and in physical stores.

The Vision Pro package includes a Light Seal, two Light Seal pads, a protective cover for the device’s front, a double loop strap, an Apple polishing cloth, an external battery pack, a USB-C power adapter, and a USB-C charging cable.

Apple also offers custom Zeiss optical lenses for nearsighted users, priced at $149 (approximately 1066 RMB) and standard reading glasses at $99 (approximately 708 RMB).

Initially launching in the United States, Bloomberg journalist Gurman Mark believes that the Vision Pro will soon be available in other countries shortly after its U.S. release.

However, with a price tag of $3499, the Vision Pro is considered expensive for the average consumer, leading to expectations that Apple might introduce more affordable iterations in the future.
