Apple Vision Pro: Everything you need to know
Apple wants you to immerse yourself in a new world with their Vision Pro. A virtual space at your fingertips with endless possibilities. Apple has described them as a new step in personal technology.
If there's one thing that can be seen in Apple's presentation, it's how smooth the operating system seems to move, being able to resize and place new screens simply by moving our fingers.
Apple Vision Pro is controlled simply with our fingers, no other controller is necessary. You, your voice, your eyes, and your hands are all you need to control Apple's new glasses.
Apple Vision Pro introduces a new technology that Apple calls EyeSight. This technology is capable of showing your eyes to people nearby, as well as modifying the interface so you can see and interact with them without taking off your glasses.
All of Apple's apps have been adapted to the new Vision Pro, such as FaceTime, Safari, Messages, and any other app you have on your iPhone or iPad. The glasses are designed for both work and home enjoyment, capable of replacing an iPad or a Mac. They can even replace your TV by adding a huge screen to any location. They even allow you to view 3D content.
Apple Vision Pro is made mostly of glass, with an aluminum frame that features a button and a Digital Crown for control. Additionally, they are designed in a modular way to adapt to each user.
They have their own speaker compatible with Spatial Audio and two Zeiss lenses that magnetically adapt and can be changed depending on the user's prescription. The battery is external to lighten the device and can be carried in a pocket.
The screens of the Apple Vision Pro have an impressive quality where pixels are not visible in any way. There are more pixels in each of the screens than in a 4K TV.
They also feature 12 cameras and sensors, including infrared cameras and a LiDAR sensor. All controlled by the M2 chip and the R1 chip, specifically designed for Apple Vision Pro.
Apple Vision Pro is capable of analyzing your face and creating a completely realistic 3D virtual avatar that you can use in your Face ID video calls. Just by seeing the movement of your eyes and mouth, this avatar mimics exactly what you do.
In addition, Apple has created a new way of identifying us specifically for Apple Vision Pro, in addition to Touch ID and Face ID, we now have Optical ID. This new biometric identification method detects us by scanning the iris of our eyes.
Regarding the cost of the product, the price of Apple Vision Pro is $3,499 and will be available in the United States in 2024, with more countries being added throughout the year.
