Apple continuing more affordable Apple Vision Pro development, launch anticipated in second half of 2025
Apple is continuing to work on a more affordable version of its forthcoming $3,499 Apple Vision Pro headset, with a report claiming that a cheaper model is in development with a launch anticipated during the second half of 2025.
Since Apple unveiled its long-rumored Apple Vision Pro mixed-reality headset earlier this year, reports have suggested that the iPhone maker is working on a mass-market version of the product for launch in the not too distant future, likely offering a scaled-back version of the all-encompassing inaugural Apple Vision Pro that is scheduled to launch in the US in March next year.
In report citing industry sources, DigiTimes has claimed that work continues inside Apple on a more affordable Apple Vision Pro, likely named “Apple Vision,” with engineers said to be working on four new models, though it is likely that these are different prototype models rather than four separate headsets that will launch simultaneously.
The mixed-reality Apple Vision Pro headset, which will be available only in the US at launch, will be released in 2024, with Apple stating that the device will be coming to more countries and regions later next year.
The device is made from a singular piece of three-dimensionally formed laminated glass with an aluminum alloy frame that curves to wrap a user’s face. The device features an array of advanced cameras and sensors that work together to enable the mixed-reality experience, and speakers are positioned close to a users ears to deliver Spatial Audio.
