Hello Apple Vision Pro

Apple has dropped a new Vision Pro ad just a few days before the launch of the new device. You can watch it above.

The 70-second ad, posted on Apple’s YouTube channel on Sunday, has Supertramp’s 1974 hit Dreamer as the soundtrack and shows the $3,499 mixed-reality headset being used in a variety of settings. It kicks off with a guy in his house using the device to apparently catch up on some work, with the sequence focusing heavily on how hand gestures can be used to control the Vision Pro, though commands can also be communicated via voice and eye movements. The same guy is later seen switching from work to playing with his daughter, with a digital representation of his eyes appearing on the Vision Pro’s outer display so that eye contact can be had without removing the device. It’s a feature unique among such headsets, though some people have found it a bit creepy.

We see another guy at home wearing the Vision Pro to watch a movie and using a pinch gesture to increase the size of the virtual cinema screen, and a woman using it to hold a FaceTime call with a friend. It also shows an airplane passenger with the device strapped to her head as she watches a movie during a flight.

The ad includes the tagline, “Hello Apple Vision Pro.”

The Vision Pro headset is Apple’s most significant product launch since the Apple Watch smartwatch in 2015. For the tech giant, there’s a lot riding on the device, though the $3,499 asking price is likely to be prohibitive for many.

A lot of people have been asking about the kind of apps that will be available with the brand-new device at launch. On that front, here’s everything you need to know.

The Vision Pro arrives first in the U.S. and will start landing in customers’ hands on Friday, February 2. Other countries are expected to follow soon.

Here’s why the Vision Pro succeeded where the Apple Car failed

Everywhere you look, the failure of Apple’s secret self-driving car is dominating the news. Yet, it comes shortly after another moonshot project -- the Vision Pro -- launched to higher-than-expected initial sales. Why did one crash and burn while the other was successfully brought to market?

Well, Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman has attempted to answer that question in his latest Power On newsletter, which claims that the Apple Car (known internally as Project Titan) was “doomed nearly from the start.” In the end, there are many reasons for its failure that the Vision Pro was able to navigate its way around.

Apple is already planning its next big thing after the Vision Pro

The Vision Pro headset is Apple’s most significant new product in years, and it is widely seen as the company’s “next big thing.” But Apple isn’t resting on its laurels, as a new report has highlighted the products that the company hopes will shake up the market in similarly momentous ways. And no, we’re not talking about a second-generation Vision Pro.

Among the devices Apple is secretly working on are a set of smartglasses, a health and fitness ring, and even a pair of souped-up AirPods with cameras and advanced sensors. All of these products are designed to capture customer attention and help Apple turn the ship around after a disappointing year of declining sales.
