Metaverse welcomes Apple’s Vision Pro AR headset.

The tech company Apple has made a big announcement about a new augmented reality headset that can seamlessly blend digital and real-world experiences.

Apple’s announcements always generate a lot of excitement, and this one did not disappoint.

CEO Tim Cook described the Apple Vision Pro as “the era of spatial computing,” a headset that can switch between augmented and fully virtual reality.

The product should be available early next year in the USA for users over 13 years old, with a starting price of $3,499 according to the Verge. The battery can last for two hours, but it can last all day if plugged in.

Apple claims that the Vision Pro protects users’ privacy through existing Apple privacy and security features, as well as new technologies like Optic ID, an authentication system that utilizes the uniqueness of one’s iris.

The launch of Apple’s new headset is likely to reignite interest in the metaverse.


The apps on the headset “live in your space,” said the company. The headset will allow users to view both the real world and the apps within that space.

Users can interact with anybody else in the room without controls, using their fingers, eyes, and voice to navigate, customize, and select apps, as well as to scroll and dictate.

The company claims that these spatial experiences look, sound, and feel physically real, and this is made possible by visionOS, Apple’s first-ever spatial operating system.

The headset can also connect to Mac laptops just by looking at the screen, which can then be moved to form a larger display outside the computer and within the user’s space.

The headset can also be used as “a 3D camera” that captures photos and videos.

For entertainment, the spatial-audio experience surrounds the viewer and allows them to make adjustments to the size of the screen. Additionally, viewers can create a different environment around them for an enhanced viewing experience.

The headset can also be used for work purposes, providing an easy way to access the Internet, browse, create and complete tasks, and communicate with colleagues.

More Than 4K TV for Each Eye

The announcement stated that “We built a micro-OLED display system that fits 64 pixels in the same amount of space as a single iPhone pixel. And packs 23 million into two panels the size of a postage stamp. That’s more than a 4K TV for each eye.”

Vision Pro is made of a piece of three-dimensionally formed laminated glass, an aluminum alloy frame that curves in order to wrap around the face, twelve cameras, and five sensors.

The headset is adjustable and has a dual-chip design: one runs visionOS among other tasks, while the other processes input from the cameras, sensors, and microphones.

Vision Pro has been in development for years, with several delays and iterations.

It is safe to say that many people are excited for the headset to come out, but it remains to be seen if it will fulfill their expectations.
