The Apple Vision Pro is Apple’s first standalone device in a completely new product category since the company launched the iPad in 2010. So it’s not surprising that when Apple first unveiled its first “spatial computing” device, the focus was more on experiences than tech specs.

But now that the Apple Vision Pro is up for pre-order for $3,499 and up (with availability expected to begin February 2), Apple has also shared more details about the hardware that makes its new wearable computer work.

We already knew that Apple Vision Pro was powered by an Apple M2 processor, featured a new Apple R1 chip to handle camera and sensor processing, and featured two micro LED displays with a combined 23 million pixels.

But now we have more details about those chips, displays, and other hardware, complete with information about things like screen refresh rates, memory, and storage.

  1. I’ve known for a few days via MacRumors. It’s literally a computer on your head.

    Actually, and I’m not a tin-foil hatter at all (I’m in medical school and genuinely wonder), but I wonder what the long term implications wearing something like that so close to your brain might have.

    Seriously, there has been a huge uptick recently in young people in their 20’s and 30’s getting colorectal cancer which has doctors baffled. It’s definitely according to them something in the environment.

    ????

    1. Perhaps that’s from sitting down 23.5 hours every day! -particularly in a poor sitting position that’s bad for their circulation and digestion?

      1. The point I was driving at is, I’d be concerned about wearing something on my head that emits radio signals — over the long term.

        It is true that a good diet and exercise are conducive to good health and a longer life-span, but my point was — scientists have discovered there is something in the environment which is causes a large spike in cancer in younger people.

        It might be more due to processed foods, fast food, then a sedentiary lifestyle. Possibly due to other environmental factors.

        I’m just saying I’m curious about this. Having a computer on your head that emits radio signals, I’m curious about the possible long-term implications of this on the brain.

        1. I bet time will show that you’re correct, of course this will be long after it’s too late. Carrying cell phones near our junk majority of the day, absorbing micro plastics, eating processed food, taking MRNA gene therapy shots. Testosterone levels have severely dropped, same with sperm levels, autism diagnosis has increased. No conspiracy theories needed at this point, things are going downhill quick as we “progress” into the future.

          1. “MRNA gene therapy shots”
            I new that would come up in this thread at some point.

  2. $3,499 and up. Hmmm, I wonder how much the iPorn adapter goes for and how long the wait-list is.

      1. I can’t help but agree, but I would be remiss in not clarifying that statement has been accurate for over a decade at this point.

    1. They’d be putting their efforts in a better place by to porting it to the ipad pro instead.
      Which isn’t supposed to be possible, and I doubt it would be for this either.

        1. So it does… https://www.apple.com/ipad-pro/specs/

          Meh. Danctnix is working quite heavily on Linux for tablets but if XR goggles are the future (big “if”, given miniaturisation/more reading glasses-style approach) then it would be worth working on that future in Linux…

      1. The iPads have a very locked down bootloader. Trying to hack that would not be a good use of their time.

        1. I imagine the Vision Pro’s will be similarly 🙁
