Get ready to see the world through Apple’s eyes. Their highly anticipated Vision Pro headset finally has a release date: February 2nd in the US. Pre-orders start mid-January for this $3,499 mixed-reality device, marking Apple’s biggest product launch since the Apple Watch in 2015.
But hold your horses, UK fans. No launch date for you yet. Production issues have reportedly slashed the initial 1 million unit target to 400,000 for 2024. Still, excitement abounds for this revolutionary tech.
Vision Pro boasts 256GB of storage and an eye-tracking tech that works with just one dominant eye. Apple wants to set it apart, urging developers to call their apps “spatial computing” instead of AR, VR, XR, or MR. Think a futuristic iPhone launch – Apple even released a sleek trailer showcasing the headset in action.

But will all that high-tech justify the hefty price tag? Only time will tell. BBC testers praised the minimalist design and immersive experience, complete with gesture control and a physical dial for adjusting immersion levels. It’s a bold new chapter for Apple, aiming to redefine how we interact with technology.
So, US tech enthusiasts, mark your calendars. February 2nd could be the day you dive into a whole new reality, courtesy of Apple Vision Pro. For everyone else, stay tuned – your turn might be coming soon.
