Memories Come Alive
Spatial Audio in Apple Vision Pro captures and pulls users in their loved memories. Each spatial photo and video transports viewers back in time. Such as a party or family get together. ICloud enables users to access their entire photo library, view images. And also watch videos at life size with vivid color and detail. Every iPhone Panorama surrounds the user, making them feel as if they were present.
FaceTime Becomes Spatial
Apple Vision Pro betters FaceTime calls by taking advantage of the space around the user. Everyone on the call appears in life size tiles. With Spatial Audio making it sound as if users are speaking from their locations. When wearing Vision Pro during a call, users are showed as a Persona a digital shows of themselves. Created using Apple’s advanced machine learning techniques. The Persona shows real time face and hand movements. Users can engage in shared activities during the call. Such as watching a movie, looking at photos, or taking part in a presentation.
Even More App Experiences
Apple Vision Pro features a new App Store that enables users to explore apps and content from developers. They can access hundreds of thousands of familiar iPhone and iPad apps. That run seamlessly and automatically work with the new input system for Vision Pro. Apple’s developer community can take advantage of the powerful and unique capabilities of Vision Pro and visionOS. To create brand-new app experiences and reimagine existing ones for spatial computing
A Revolutionary Operating System and User Interface
visionOS is built on the foundation of decades of engineering innovation in macOS, iOS, and iPadOS. Specifically designed to support the low-latency requirements of spatial computing. VisionOS is a revolutionary operating system that delivers powerful spatial experiences. It takes advantage of the space around the user, unlocking new opportunities at work and at home.
visionOS features a brand-new 3D interface that makes digital content appear present in the user’s physical world. By responding dynamically to natural light and casting shadows, it helps users understand scale and distance.
To enable navigation and interaction with spatial content, Apple Vision Pro introduces an entirely new input system. That is controlled by a user’s eyes, hands, and voice. Users can browse through apps by looking at them, tapping their fingers to select, flicking their wrist to scroll.
Apple Vision Pro includes EyeSight, an extraordinary innovation that keeps users connected with those around them. When someone approaches a user wearing Vision Pro.
The device becomes transparent, allowing the user to see them while also displaying their eyes. When a user is immersed in an environment or using an app. EyeSight provides visual cues to others about what the user is focused on.
Apple Vision Pro leverages Apple’s innovation and experience in designing high-performance products. Like Mac, iPhone, and wearables such as Apple Watch, culminating in the most advanced personal electronics device ever.
To achieve ambitious goals for performance, mobility, and wearability, Apple utilized the most advanced materials available.
The device packs an impressive amount of technology into a compact design. A singular piece of three-dimensional formed and laminated glass is polished to create an optical surface. That acts as a lens for the wide array of cameras and sensors. Needed to blend the physical world with digital content.
The glass flows into the custom aluminum alloy frame that gently curves around the user’s face.
The modular system permits a tailored fit to accommodate a wide range of people. The Light Seal is made of a soft textile and comes in various shapes and sizes. Flexing to conform to a user’s face for a precise fit. Flexible straps keep audio close to the user’s ears.
While a Head Band, which is three-dimensionally knitted as a single piece, provides cushioning, breathability, and stretch. The band is secured with a simple mechanism, making it easy to change to another size or style.
Unrivaled Innovation in Hardware
Apple Vision Pro is engineered to provide incredible computing performance in a compact, wearable form factor. The device features a groundbreaking ultra-high-resolution display system built on top of an Apple silicon chip.
Utilizing micro-OLED technology, Vision Pro packs 23 million pixels into two displays. Each the size of a postage stamp, with wide color and high dynamic range.
This technological leap, combined with custom catadioptric lenses that enable remarkable sharpness and clarity, produces breathtaking experiences.
Users with vision correction needs can use ZEISS Optical Inserts to ensure visual fidelity and eye-tracking accuracy.
Spatial Audio is a crucial aspect of the Apple Vision Pro experience. Creating the sensation that sounds are emanating from the user’s surroundings and matching the sound to the space.
Each audio pod contains two individually amplified drivers that deliver Personalized Spatial Audio. Based on the user’s head and ear geometry.
Besides the revolutionary display and advanced audio experiences. The high-performance eye tracking system in Apple Vision Pro uses high-speed cameras and a ring of LEDs. That project invisible light patterns onto the user’s eyes for responsive and intuitive input.
While the brand-new R1 chip processes input from 12 cameras, five sensors. And six microphones to ensure that content appears as if it is right in front of the user’s eyes.
In real-time. R1 streams new images to the displays within 12 milliseconds, which is 8x faster than the blink of an eye.
Apple Vision Pro is designed for all-day use when plugged in. Snd it can be used for up to two hours with its external, high-performance battery.
Industry-Leading Privacy and Security
Apple Vision Pro prioritizes privacy and security and gives users control over their data.
Optic ID is a new
A user’s Optic ID data is fully encrypted, not accessible to apps. And never leaves their device, meaning it is not stored on Apple servers.
Where a user looks stays private while navigating Apple Vision Pro. And eye tracking information is not shared with Apple, third-party apps, or websites.
Additionally, data from the camera and other sensors is processed at the system level.
So individual apps do not need to access a user’s surroundings to enable spatial experiences. EyeSight also includes a visual indicator. That makes it clear to others when a user is capturing a spatial photo or video.
Pricing and Availability
Apple Vision Pro will be available for purchase starting at $3,499 (U.S.). And will be released early next year on apple.com. And at Apple Store locations in the U.S., with more countries coming later next year. Customers can learn about, experience, and personalize their fit for Vision Pro at Apple Store locations.
