The Vision Pro headset will go on sale on February 2, according to a recent revelation made by Apple CEO Tim Cook on Twitter (now called X). Because the iPhone maker’s first virtual reality headset is so new, many people are eager to explore what it has to offer. When Apple originally debuted Vision Pro earlier this year, they created headlines by inviting a small number of journalists to try it out. The largely positive media stories further fueled the excitement of IT enthusiasts.
Now that the Vision Pro will soon be on sale, people will have the chance to test it out for themselves. Among the passionate is Elon Musk, the CEO of X.

In response to Cook’s tweet on the helmet, Musk said he wanted to try it on for himself.
“The era of spatial computing is here! Cook tweeted that the Apple Vision Pro will be available in the US on February 2. To which Musk wrote in response, “I look forward to trying it out.”

In June of last year, Cook unveiled the Vision Pro, calling it a “new type of computer.” Fans of the smartphone have been eager to use it since its presentation during WWDC.

And as the sale day gets closer, the excitement just intensifies.

The Apple Vision Pro is available for $3,499 USD. Apple disclosed the price and release date of the headset, as well as the selection of Zeiss prescription lenses available to consumers. Prescription lenses cost $149, and readers add another $99 to the bill.

Among the accessories included with the entry-level 256GB Vision Pro model are a light seal, two light seal cushions, an Apple Vision Pro cover, a polishing cloth, a battery, a USB-C charging cable, and a USB-C power converter.

This device features a 4K display for each eye, and users may switch between virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) with a side-mounted dial. Apple’s proprietary M2 chip and the new R1 chip, which processes data from integrated sensors, cameras, and microphones, power the headpiece. In addition, the device can track the user’s hands, head, and eyes, enabling controller-free interface interaction.

Furthermore, the headgear is powered by visionOS, Apple’s next operating system, which also claims to function seamlessly with most iPhone and iPad apps without requiring additional effort from app developers. Apple also pledged to provide consumers with access to over 150 3D titles through the Apple TV app.
