Apple Announces Mixed Reality Headset

Apple announces the Apple Vision Pro, saying its expected new mixed reality headset will arrive early next year in the US for $3499. This should deliver unprecedented visual quality, promising more pixels per eye than a 4K TV. Apple says this introduces the era of spatial computing: "Vision Pro is Apple’s first 3D camera. You can capture magical spatial photos and spatial videos in 3D, then relive those cherished moments like never before with immersive Spatial Audio. Your existing library of photos and videos looks incredible at remarkable scale. And panoramas wrap around you — making you feel like you’re standing right where you took them." There's also word on protecting user privacy, a clear shot at headset competitor Meta. Here's a video and more on visionOS, which will allow you to interact with all your applications using just gestures and voice:
Built on the foundation of macOS, iOS, and iPadOS, visionOS enables powerful spatial experiences. Control Vision Pro with your eyes, hands, and voice — interactions feel intuitive and magical. Simply look at an element, tap your fingers together to select, and use the virtual keyboard or dictation to type.

In visionOS, apps can fill the space around you, beyond the boundaries of a display. They can be moved anywhere, scaled to the perfect size, react to the lighting in your room, and even cast shadows.
