Apple plans earlier than expected launch of Vision Pro headset

Apple will begin mass deliveries of Vision Pro headsets in the first week of January, says supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Initially, the release was announced “in early 2024,” but there was speculation that the headsets could hit the market in March 2024. But according to Kuo’s forecast, Apple plans to launch Vision Pro earlier than expected.

The headsets are expected to hit stores either in late January or early February. This coincides with Gurman’s report of “ramping up production” and “preparing for a February launch.” Kuo added that Apple plans to ship “approximately 500,000” Vision Pro headsets in 2024.

Apple’s pre-launch efforts also include working with developers. The company has reportedly sent emails to software developers urging them to test their programs and prepare for the Vision Pro. In addition, Apple Store employees are being trained to show and demonstrate the headset to potential customers.

So far, there has been no official statement from Apple about the Vision Pro release date.

As for the headset itself, it features two high-resolution OLED displays with a total resolution of 23 million pixels. It is powered by Apple M2 and Apple R1 chips, which provide real-time data processing capabilities for a seamless experience. The device also has 12 cameras and six microphones and runs on the new VisionOS operating system.

However, the $3,499 price tag may make some potential buyers hesitate. Although there are rumors of a cheaper version, it is not yet clear when it might appear.

Only time will tell if Vision Pro will be a success, but with increased production and developer training, Apple seems confident of launching it in early 2024. We will keep you updated on any new developments.
