Vision Pro is Apple's latest product that will be introduced on February 2, 2024 in the USA and other countries that year12. The product costs $3,500 and offers users an exceptional spatial entertainment experience, with more than 150 3D movies, immersive movies and series, Disney+, Max, and more.
Vision Pro allows users to download and watch content from Disney+, ESPN, MLB, PGA Tour, Max, Discovery+, Amazon Prime Video, Paramount+, Peacock, Pluto TV, Tubi, Fubo, Crunchyroll, Red Bull TV, IMAX, TikTok and MOBILE. Users can also watch and watch videos online using Safari and other web browsers.
Disney+ is one of the key partners of Apple Vision Pro, which is the leading streaming service that Vision Pro supports, giving users access to thousands of high-quality Disney movies and TV shows. According to Disney, many of its movies will have 3D versions on Vision Pro, such as Avatar: The Way of Water, Avengers: Endgame, Encanto, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens4. These 3D movies will make viewers feel like they are in the world of the movie, with excellent depth and height. Users can also share their movie experiences with friends and family via FaceTime, a feature that allows you to see other people's faces and gestures in space.
The headset also comes with Apple Immersive Video, a new entertainment format that features 180-degree 8K 3D recording with Spatial Audio. Apple is selecting immersive movies and series that will be available on Vision Pro at launch.
Immersive films and series include “Adventure,” which follows trailblazing athletes through challenges, and “Wild Life,” which brings viewers up close to fascinating creatures. The collection also includes “Prehistoric Planet Immersion” and “Alicia Key: The Rehearsal Room.”
Vision Pro will feature a “Travel Mode” feature that stabilizes images for use on airplanes, as well as a “Guest User” feature that allows users to share private apps and experiences with others.
“Apple Vision Pro is the ultimate entertainment device”, Greg Joswiak, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said in a press release. “Users can turn any place into the best seat in the house, enjoy personal concerts and adventures with Apple Immersive Video, interact with lifelike prehistoric creatures in Encounter Dinosaurs, and even land on the surface of the moon using Environments. It’s unlike anything users have ever seen before and we can’t wait for them to experience it for themselves.”
The headset features an ultra-high-resolution micro-OLED display with a total of 23 million pixels with wide color, high dynamic range, and Dolby Vision. The Vision Pro has a normal usage time of two hours and up to 2.5 hours of video viewing. If you want to use it all day, the headset's external battery needs to be connected to a power source using a USB-C charging cable.
Hollywood studios have been trying to create 3D for a long time. The technology has never really caught on outside of movie theaters, although TV manufacturers have tried. While the Vision Pro might make it more appealing than the big 3D glasses or stereoscopic displays we've seen before, it probably won't do much for the format as a whole since there's very little among the company's products. Expensive headphones will appear in the world even after a year.
Pre-orders for the $3,500 headset will begin at 5 a.m. on January 19. PT. At launch, the new Vision Pro App Store will feature “over 1 million” compatible iOS and iPadOS apps, along with experiences created specifically for the headset.
