The spotlight of the WWDC 2023 event was undoubtedly claimed by the announcement of the new MR Headset, the Apple Vision Pro.

While its essence lies in being a mixed reality (MR) headset, Apple intriguingly avoids the terms VR, AR or mixed reality. Instead, they have coined it a "spatial computer," marking a distinctive approach to its identity.

In this comprehensive Apple Vision Pro guide, we delve into every aspect surrounding this groundbreaking product, including its release date, pricing details, and all the valuable information we've gathered so far.

Apple Vision Pro release date

Although the official release date for the Apple Vision Pro remains undisclosed, the tech giant has revealed a projected release window.

According to Apple's announcement, the Apple Vision Pro will be released in the early months of 2024. This indicates a potential launch time frame spanning from January to the latter part of April.

Notably, the initial release of the Vision Pro will be exclusive to customers within the United States. However, international markets are poised to witness a subsequent rollout shortly following the U.S. launch.

Apple Vision Pro price

As revealed in the launch presentation during the WWDC keynote, the price tag attached to the Apple Vision Pro is a whopping $3,499. The pricing details for other countries have not yet been disclosed.

While the Vision Pro is not currently open for pre-orders, you can sign up for a notification from Apple. By doing so, you'll receive timely alerts regarding the commencement of pre-order availability for the headset.

If you find the headset too pricey, you would be glad to know that Apple is reportedly working on a cheaper version of the Vision Pro for 2025. This alternative doesn't come with some of the premium features to maintain a more budget-friendly price point.

Apple Vision Pro specs

The Apple Vision Pro boasts an impressive array of specifications that promise to redefine your immersive experiences.

Features Apple Vision Pro
Display Micro OLED 4K
Resolution3800 x 3000 per eye
Refresh RateUp to 96Hz
ProcessorM2 + R2 chips

Inside the headset, there are two Micro OLED 4K displays; one is for your left eye, and the other is for your right eye. These displays exhibit a remarkable resolution of 3800 x 3000 per eye, which is far superior that the Meta Quest 3 resolution.

The Vision Pro has a refresh rate of 90Hz for 2D content, as officially stated by Apple. However, the headset doesn't stop there – it has the capacity to surge to 96Hz for content created at 24 frames per second.

The Apple Vision Pro runs on visionOS, the "world’s first spatial operating system." This system blends digital content with the physical world and helps you interact with the headset in a user-friendly way.


Powering the Apple Vision Pro are two distinct chips. The M2 chip not only manages the visionOS efficiently, but it also orchestrates complex computer vision algorithms and renders stunning graphics, all while being exceptionally power-efficient.

Complementing the M2 chip is the brand-new R1 chip, which is specifically dedicated to process input from the cameras, sensors, and microphones, streaming images to the displays within 12 ms - for a virtually lag-free, real-time view of the world.
