Apple Vision Pro, powered by visionOS, features an intuitive spatial user interface and magical input system navigated by eyes, hands, and voice. Built upon decades of innovation in iOS, iPadOS, and macOS, visionOS works seamlessly with Apple’s ecosystem of hardware, software, and services to deliver a delightful experience across users’ favorite Apple devices.

VisionOS introduces a three-dimensional user interface controlled by the user’s eyes, hands, and voice. Users can interact with apps by simply looking at them, tapping their fingers, speaking to dictate text, or using the virtual keyboard. Siri can open and close apps, play media, answer questions, and more. This infinite canvas frees apps from the boundaries of physical displays, providing users with the ultimate workspace for productivity and entertainment.

Users can rotate the Digital Crown on Apple Vision Pro to immerse themselves in stunning, dynamic landscapes like Haleakalā, Joshua Tree, Yosemite, and even the moon. These environments help users focus, reduce visual clutter, and enjoy immersive experiences.

With visionOS 2, available later this year as a free update, users will gain access to new features, including transforming photos into 3D memories, intuitive hand gestures, enhanced Mac Virtual Display capabilities, Travel Mode, Guest User features, and improvements to Mindfulness, Safari, and the Apple TV app.

The App Store features over 2,000 apps designed for Apple Vision Pro and more than 1.5 million compatible iOS and iPadOS apps. Popular productivity apps like Box, Craft, Slack, and Webex, and top streaming services including Apple TV+, Disney+, and Amazon Prime Video, will be available.

Businesses across industries are embracing spatial computing, with over half of the Fortune 100 companies using Apple Vision Pro for innovative solutions. Vision Pro also offers new opportunities for healthcare professionals in clinical education, surgical planning, medical imaging, and behavioral health.

Apple Vision Pro features an ultra-high-resolution display system using micro-OLED technology, delivering more pixels than a 4K TV to each eye. Its advanced Spatial Audio system creates the feeling that sounds are coming from the space around the user. Powered by Apple silicon in a unique dual-chip design, M2 and R1 chips ensure powerful performance and a virtually lag-free, real-time view of the world.

Vision Pro includes powerful accessibility features, robust privacy and security measures, and environmental sustainability efforts. It is designed with 100% recycled rare earth elements and meets high standards for energy efficiency.

Pokdepinion: As much as I would like one for myself, I would wait for a more refined model. It’s less about the price and more about having something less cumbersome and something that can be used for longer hours without issues.
