Do you remember the launch of the iPod, iPad and iPhone? Now Apple is about to take things one step further with a VR headset: Apple Vision Pro. During the Worldwide Developers Conference on 5 June, it unveiled the new platform, which is one of its most ambitious products.
Apple Vision Pro is the company’s first product in the virtual reality sector. The headset is a revolutionary spatial computer that blends digital content with the physical world. Featuring visionOS, the world’s first spatial operating system, users can interact with content in a new way.
Apple Vision Pro was unveiled by Apple CEO Tim Cook and Disney CEO Bob Iger. Iger called it “real life magic”, and announced that Disney+ will be available on the platform. Cook explained: “Today marks the beginning of a new era for computing. Just as the Mac introduced us to personal computing, and iPhone introduced us to mobile computing, Apple Vision Pro introduces us to spatial computing.
“Built upon decades of Apple innovation, Vision Pro is years ahead and unlike anything created before — with a revolutionary new input system and thousands of groundbreaking innovations. It unlocks incredible experiences for our users and exciting new opportunities for our developers.”
Apple Vision Pro is a gamechanger, which will transform how we use apps, capture photos, watch TV and movies, and connect with people. The system includes an ultra-high-resolution display system with 23 million pixels across two displays, with makes it feel like the experience is happening in real time. With the headset, any space can become your personal movie theatre – so whether you’re in bed or on a plane, the screen will feel 100 feet wide.
Apple Immersive Video offers 180-degree high-resolution recordings with Spatial Audio, and users will be able to access immersive videos. The headset features Apple’s first three-dimensional camera, which allows users to capture, relive and immerse themselves into memories. Plus, if you’re missing your friends and family, FaceTime calls will become life-size tiles.
Apple Vision Pro uses visionOS, and is designed from the ground up. The platform allows people to create brand-new spatial apps, and include 3D objects that look and feel real. Plus, it will have a new app store, and it will include tools for developers.
In true Apple style, Apple Vision Pro boasts a sleek design. The headset combines performance, mobility and wearability. The materials include a custom aluminium alloy frame that curves around the user’s face, and a headband in three sizes.
The VR headset prides itself on its privacy. The system operates on the unique reading of your iris, and where you look can stay private.
