Here’s How Long It’ll Take To Get One
Talking of the sales in-store, Apple has reportedly worked out plans to offer detailed 25-minute-long feature walkthroughs for the Vision Pro and will require you to book an appointment. If you are pre-ordering online, Apple has a rather unusual process requiring you to scan your head using an iPhone. This will allow Apple to deliver the right fit for your head. This also means the product will be custom to your head’s measurements, and sharing with others in the family may not be gratifying.
Apple also allows you to add prescription lenses from Zeiss, increasing the price by $99 for reading glasses and $149 for prescription lenses. You can also choose from different sizes for the head strap and opt for an additional harness over the head. The Apple Vision Pro’s battery pack is separate from the headset to take some of the weight off and is expected to last only two hours. For $199, Apple will sell extra battery packs, but how the swapping works out without turning the headset off remains to be seen, especially if you’re in the middle of an important task.
Lastly, besides the base 256GB variant, Apple is also selling the Vision Pro with 512GB and 1TB storage options, which will cost $3,699 and $3,899, respectively. If you are intrigued by the new headset, you better place your order — either online or at a physical store — lest the delivery dates slip even further.
