In addition to the great performance and capabilities, the massive price tag also stood out. Apple Vision Pro costs $3,499 in the United States.

On the other hand, the second model – which may be called the Apple Vision – will be much cheaper. Apple will have to make some compromises on quality.

In addition, it can also adjust the headband design so that there are no built-in speakers. In this case, you will have to use Apple Vision with AirPods. Finally, some materials can also be provided.
  • On the other hand, the external display — called EyeSight — seems to be making a comeback anyway. Apple considers this to be an essential part of its AR headset. According to them, this gives users the idea that they are not completely isolated from others.
  • This cheaper AR headset from Apple is expected to be released at the end of 2025.
