Introducing Vision Pro, Apple’s first spatial computer

Last night, Apple launched the Apple Vision Pro, a revolutionary spatial computer that seamlessly blends digital content with the physical world, while allowing users to stay present and connected to others.

Vision Pro creates an infinite canvas for apps that scales beyond the boundaries of a traditional display and introduces a fully three-dimensional user interface controlled by the most natural and intuitive inputs possible — a user’s eyes, hands, and voice. Featuring visionOS, the world’s first spatial operating system, Vision Pro lets users interact with digital content in a way that feels like it is physically present in their space.

The breakthrough design of Vision Pro features an ultra-high-resolution display system that packs 23 million pixels across two displays, and custom Apple silicon in a unique dual-chip design to ensure every experience feels like it’s taking place in front of the user’s eyes in real time.

“Today marks the beginning of a new era for computing,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “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 users and new opportunities for developers.”

VisionOS features a three-dimensional interface that frees apps so they can appear side by side at any scale. With two ultra-high-resolution displays, it also transforms any space into a personal cinema with a screen that feels 100 feet wide. Spatial computing makes new types of games possible with titles that can span a spectrum of immersion and bring gamers into all-new worlds.

Featuring Apple’s first three-dimensional camera, the new computer lets users capture, relive and immerse themselves in favourite memories with Spatial Audio. FaceTime calls take advantage of the room around the user, with everyone on the call reflected in life-size tiles.

Apple Vision Pro has an all-new App Store where users can discover apps and content from developers, and access hundreds of thousands of familiar iPhone and iPad apps that run great and automatically work with the new input system for Vision Pro.

Apple Vision Pro starts at US$3,499, and will be available early next year on apple.com and in Apple stores in the US, with more countries coming later next year. For more information about Vision Pro, visit apple.com/apple-vision-pro.
