Apple has revealed its long-awaited Vision Pro headset will be released on 2 February in the United States.

Pre-order Launch and Market Impact

Customers in the US can now pre-order Apple’s Vision Pro, a mixed-reality device priced at $3,499 (£2,749), while a UK release date remains unspecified. This launch marks Apple’s first major product release since the Apple Watch in 2015.

Product History and Production Challenges

The announcement of the headset in June 2023 followed years of speculation during its development. 

However, reports from the Financial Times reveal a significant reduction in production forecasts, dropping from an estimated one million units to 400,000 for 2024.

Device Specifications and Innovative Features

Apple confirmed the device will offer 256GB of storage and highlighted its eye-tracking technology, emphasizing its functionality for users with visual impairments in one eye.

Marketing Strategy and Branding Approach

To differentiate the device, Apple urged developers to brand their apps for the device as “spatial computing,” steering away from traditional AR, VR, XR, or MR descriptions. 

The company also released a trailer online, reminiscent of the iPhone’s 2007 launch hype, featuring characters from films wearing the device.

Market Potential and Price Accessibility

The success of the Vision Pro could signify a substantial revenue stream for Apple. However, the high price point might limit its accessibility, positioning it as a luxury item.

Hands-on Experience and Device Insights

The BBC had an exclusive hands-on experience with the Vision Pro last year, revealing a detached battery design for reduced weight on the head. 

The user interface mirrors Apple’s signature minimalist approach, projecting digital content onto the user’s surroundings via onboard cameras, defining the “mixed-reality” experience.
