Apple Vision Pro basics

Apple Vision Pro is Apple's augmented and virtual reality headset device, which has been in development for over a decade. Apple Vision Pro is the company's first move into a significant new lineup category since the 2015 Apple Watch, and it comes to the public on February 2, 2024.

Although Apple Vision Pro is a headset device, Apple never uses that word to define it. However, Apple names it a spatial computer for its ability to blend digital content with the physical world, and it regards the Vision Pro as the first spatial computing device.

Apple Vision Pro is a mixed reality headset that shows augmented reality content layered on the actual environment as well as immersive virtual information, but note that the headset is not see-through. Everything you see is digital. Apple employs cameras to map out what's in front of you, transforming it into a digital image supplemented by virtual objects.

You can overview its highlights here:

  • 4K micro OLED displays with 23 million pixels combined
  • Eye and gesture tracking for navigation and control
  • More than a dozen cameras
  • 3D photo and video capture
  • Built-in spatial audio
  • Optic ID iris scanning
  • visions operating system
  • External battery w/ 2hr battery life

Apple Vision Pro

Apple Vision Pro is configured with two Apple Silicon chips, one is the M2 chip same as the one built into MacBook Air M2 and another one is the new R1 chip.

The M2 chip runs visionOS, executes computer vision algorithms, and provides graphics. While the new R1 chip processes input from cameras, sensors, and microphones.

Like the OS working on Macs, iPads, iPhones, watchOS, and tvOS, Apple Vision Pro also gets its own operating system. The visionOS operating system runs on Apple Vision Pro and has an App Store with apps designed to run on this device, but it can also run some iPhone and iPad apps.

The Home View holds all of your preferred Apple apps including Mail, Messages, Music, Safari, Photos, etc. with the data you sync through iCloud under the same Apple ID. Its interface is quite like the iPhone's, we bet you won't get confused when you use it. Plus, you can open the apps and arrange them virtually based on your preferences.
