Apple’s latest innovation, the Vision Pro, is set to revolutionize spatial computing. Equipped with the new visionOS, the Vision Pro is not just a leap but a quantum jump in computing technology. This operating system is a fusion of Apple’s decades of engineering expertise, drawing from the strengths of macOS, iOS, and iPadOS. The result? A powerful spatial experience that redefines user interaction.

Vision Pro’s user interface is like nothing we’ve seen before. It’s entirely controlled by the user’s eyes, hands, and voice, making navigation feel like magic. Whether selecting apps with a glance, scrolling with a flick of the wrist, or typing using a virtual keyboard, the experience is intuitive and groundbreaking. Siri’s integration enhances this interaction, enabling users to manage apps and media effortlessly.

Imagine immersing yourself in dynamic environments like national parks or even the moon’s surface, all from the comfort of your room. This is now possible with Vision Pro’s Environments feature, which expands your physical space into a virtual expanse.

Vision Pro is not just about the new interface; it’s about new possibilities in personal computing. The three-dimensional interface allows apps to exist in a space beyond the confines of a screen, creating an infinite canvas for multitasking and collaboration.

With more than 1 million iOS and iPadOS apps compatible with Vision Pro, users have a vast library. An all-new App Store dedicated to Vision Pro offers spatial computing experiences, further expanding the device’s capabilities.

For productivity, Vision Pro is unmatched. It supports key apps like Fantastical, Microsoft 365, and Slack, transforming them into spatial versions for enhanced multitasking and collaboration. The device integrates seamlessly with Apple’s ecosystem, including the Magic Keyboard® and Magic Trackpad®.

Entertainment is a key focus, with Vision Pro offering a new dimension to movie watching and gaming. Its ultra-high-resolution displays surpass 4K TV quality, providing an immersive viewing experience for streaming services. Apple Immersive Video™ and spatial games like Game Room and Super Fruit Ninja utilize Vision Pro’s capabilities to offer unique, engaging gameplay experiences.


Memories and FaceTime in a New Dimension

With Vision Pro, reliving memories takes on a new dimension: spatial photos and videos, and Spatial Audio transport users to their special moments with lifelike immersion. FaceTime on Vision Pro also leverages spatial technology, making calls feel more natural and lifelike.


Breakthrough Design

Apple’s design philosophy shines in Vision Pro. It culminates their experience creating high-performance devices like the Mac, iPhone, and Apple Watch®. The device is a marvel of technology and aesthetics, with a modular design allowing users to personalize their fit.


Unrivalled Innovation

Vision Pro is a testament to Apple’s commitment to innovation. The device’s display system uses micro-OLED technology to deliver stunning visuals. Its eye-tracking system and the unique EyeSight™ feature enhance user interaction while maintaining a connection with the real world.

Powered by Apple silicon, Vision Pro promises high-performance computing in a wearable form factor. The dual-chip design, featuring the M2 and R1 chips, ensures seamless content integration and responsiveness.


Privacy, Security, and Accessibility

Privacy and security are at the core of Vision Pro. The new Optic ID™ system uses iris recognition for secure authentication, while EyeSight includes visual indicators for privacy. Apple’s commitment to accessibility is evident in visionOS, which includes features like VoiceOver and Zoom, reimagined for spatial computing.


Environmental Commitment and Availability

Aligned with Apple’s environmental goals, Vision Pro is designed with recycled materials and energy-efficient practices. It’s a step towards Apple’s ambition of being carbon neutral across its product lifecycle by 2030.

Starting at $3,499, Vision Pro will be available for pre-order from January 19, with availability from February 2 in all U.S. Apple Store locations and online.

With the launch of Apple Vision Pro, Apple continues its legacy of innovation. Vision Pro isn’t just a new device; it’s a new way of interacting with technology, blurring the lines between the digital and physical worlds. As Apple CEO Tim Cook said, “The era of spatial computing has arrived.” With Vision Pro, we are stepping into that era.
