The Apple Vision Pro headset was announced earlier this year and was initially planned for an early 2024 launch. However, Apple is apparently delaying the release a little bit as it continues to figure out its distribution plans.
Bloomberg's Apple reporter, Mark Gurman, has published his latest newsletter, in which we learn that while the Vision Pro was initially thought to be releasing in January 2024, the date has now slipped to “sometime around March”.
As previously mentioned by Apple, the device will only be available in the US to start off with. To pick one up in an actual Apple Store, you'll also have to book an appointment to make your purchase. Online availability is also expected though and Apple will be keeping stock of different headband sizes and prescription lenses to ensure buyers get the exact specs they need to use the device comfortably.
The Apple Vision Pro will run an all-new operating system, known as VisionOS and will offer both Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality capabilities.

KitGuru Says: Priced at $3,499 and up, this will be a niche device but as with most Apple products, there will be a pretty significant market of enthusiasts looking to get their hands on one at the beginning. The real test here will be the amount of app support the device gets and how much those apps may end up costing. Unlike on iOS where the majority of apps are free, we would expect things to be reversed for the Vision Pro, with more software carrying a price tag.
