Switch to Apple Vision Pro – For Extraordinary Experiences
Apple Vision Pro is a mixed reality (MR) kit that brings upon three-dimensional interfaces including access to more than 1 million apps available across iOS and iPadOS. Control the Vision Pro using hands, voice, or eye movements to bring the best without needing to rely on conventional methods to scroll and scour the world of the internet.
Relive memories and talk to your near and dear ones with Spatial Audio and FaceTime with Vision Pro where the recipients come alive. Vision Pro creates a Persona, an authentic spatial representation of Apple Vision Pro users mimicking the hand movements and facial expressions in real-time using machine learning at its helm. The Personas work seamlessly across Microsoft Teams, Cisco Webex, and Zoom among other third-party video conferencing apps.
Apple Vision Pro uses a feature called Optic ID as its authentication system that analyses your iris to unlock the headset. It can perform other functions including completing payments using Apple Pay as well as autofill passwords. Apple maintains where the user looks and does remain private and thus, no third-party apps or websites get hold of that data.
Apple is an expert in designing high-performance, ultra-premium, and advanced devices and Vision Pro spares no room to bring the best of the best. The modular system helps users personalize their fit. The MR headset is made up of a custom aluminum alloy frame with personalized 3D laminated glass that gently curves around the user’s face.
Light Seal on the Vision Pro is made up of soft textiles with varying shapes and sizes capable of fitting users precisely. You can pair the headset with reader inserts from ZEISS or upgrade to prescription ZEISS Optical Inserts that connect to the headset magnetically giving you full advantage of clarity, sharpness, and vision correction.
Apple took some time developing Vision Pro and for a good reason. The headset is paired with two UHD resolution micro-OLED displays with a total of 23 million pixels brought together on a screen size similar to postage stamps each.
The headsets use robust sensors, high-speed cameras, and rings of LEDs to project invisible light on the user’s eyes. This helps users control their Vision Pro headsets using eye movements. Apple is calling the feature EyeSight.
Vision Pro comes paired with an M2 chip that crunches numbers for standalone performance while the R1 chip takes control of six microphones, five sensors, and 12 cameras to make sure everything you see looks surreal.
