Apple Vision Pro is now available for customers across the United States through Apple’s retail channels. Customers who pre-ordered the headset for delivery to their addresses and pickup from Apple Store locations should begin receiving their units starting today, February 2. All Apple Store locations in the US should also have some stock available for in-store purchase, even if it’s likely to be severely limited.

Apple includes various accessories with Vision Pro’s retail box. This involves additions like the Solo Knit Band and Dual Loop Band, the Light Seal, two Light Seal Cushions, a front glass cover, a Polishing Cloth, an external battery, a USB-C charging cable, and a USB-C power adapter. These accessories and more like the $199 Travel Case can also be bought separately through Apple.com and from retail locations starting today.

Vision Pro starts at $3,499 with 256GB of storage and 16GB of unified memory. However, Apple employees can enjoy a lavish discount and other financial perks when ordering the headset. Vision Pro can also be ordered with 512GB and 1TB storage options for $3,699 and $3,899 respectively. The optional ZEISS Optical Inserts for those who require corrective eyewear can only be ordered online at either $99 or $149 depending on eye prescription.

Vision Pro is Apple’s first entry into mixed-reality hardware. The headset features a one-of-its-kind industrial design littered with various sophisticated sensors and chips. Vision Pro has dual 4K micro-OLED displays capable of streaming images in 4K resolution per eye. The headset is completely controlled by eye and hand gestures for a controller-free navigation experience powered by visionOS, the company’s first spatial computing operating system.

Vision Pro is powered by the tried and trusted M2 chip in addition to the all-new R1 chip for real-time sensor data processing. The R1 is responsible for the headset’s array of sensors including its dozen cameras, five 3D sensors, and six microphones. This complex system powers Vision Pro’s advanced head, hand, and eye-tracking capabilities. The R1 chip also streams new images to the headset’s displays within 12 milliseconds, eight times faster than a typical eye blink, keeping latency and motion sickness at a minimum.

The headset also introduced various innovations in other areas such as Apple’s first iris scanner, Optic ID. For an exemplary audio experience, Vision Pro comes with dual speakers powered by audio ray tracing and Spatial Audio for a personalized listening escapade. The EyeSight external display keeps you connected with your surroundings while maintaining immersion when using the headset. Vision Pro is powered by an external battery seated for more than two hours on a single charge and can also be used while plugged in.

Vision Pro in-store availability is likely to be extremely limited, so customers are recommended to arrange for pickup beforehand through Apple.com or the Apple Store app to avoid disappointment. Today’s availability is only limited to the United States, with Apple rumored to expand Vision Pro to international markets before WWDC 2024.
