Apple’s Vision Pro is right around the corner. While we already know that the headset will feature a dual-chip design with Apple’s M2 for powerful standalone performance for handling apps and the R1 chip for managing input from 12 cameras, five sensors, and six microphones, we didn’t have any idea about the available memory on the device, until now.
Vision Pro To Include 16GB Of RAM Alongside The M2 Processor
According to a report by MacRumors, the Vision Pro will come with 16GB of Unified Memory. The publication cites files related to the device in Xcode 15.2. For those catching up, Xcode is the developer toolkit for creating apps for Apple’s operating systems like iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS, and now, visionOS.
In The Future, There Could Be A 1TB Variant As Well
The finding confirms a June 2023 report published by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman about the presence of 16GB of RAM on the headset. Further, the report also mentions how some Vision Pro developer kits included 1TB of internal storage on the device. Nonetheless, for now, Apple is moving ahead with the 256GB storage variant of the device, which will be available for $3,499.
Pre-orders for the Vision Pro begin on January 19, while retail units hit the stores on February 2. Along with the headset, users must purchase ZEISS Readers for $99 and ZEISS Prescription optical inserts for $149.
Here’s What Users Will Get In The Box
In the box, users will also get two bands holding the headset in place: the Solo Knit Band and the Dual Loop Band. Further, the box also includes a Light Seal, two Light Seal Cushions, a cover for the front of the device, a polishing cloth, a battery, a USB-C charge cable, and a USB-C power adapter. Looks like the box contents make up for a sizeable chunk of the Vision Pro’s extravagant pricing.
