The priciest Apple Vision Pro retails for $4,547

Apple’s Vision Pro headset, now available for pre-order, showcases a steep price tag, especially when equipped with the highest-end options. The most expensive configuration reaches $4,547, including 1TB of storage, high-grade lenses, and AppleCare+.

Storage options for the Vision Pro include a 256GB version at $3,499 and a 512GB option for $3,699. Lenses come in standard, non-prescription “reader” types for an additional $99, while prescription inserts cost $149. Additionally, AppleCare+ adds $499 to the price.

The Vision Pro also offers a range of accessories, such as a hard travel case for $199, an extra battery for the same price, and a Belkin battery holder for $50, among others.

Despite its high price, the Vision Pro saw significant demand immediately after launch, with delivery times quickly extending.

Critics argue that the headset is overpriced compared to other VR headsets in the market. However, Apple asserts that the cost reflects the Vision Pro’s quality. Features include a powerful M2 chip, high-resolution lenses, and an array of sensors, positioning it well above lower-priced competitors.

Sales projections remain cautious, with Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo estimating an initial production of 60,000 to 80,000 units. The long-term success of the Vision Pro hinges on sustained demand.

In terms of specifications, the Vision Pro boasts an M2 chip with an 8-core CPU, 10-core GPU, and a 16-core Neural Engine. It has 16GB of memory, a 6.5MP 3D camera, a wide array of sensors, and a micro-LED display with 23 million pixels. The display supports refresh rates up to 100Hz and covers 92% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. Video mirroring is limited to 1080p.

The headset’s weight ranges between 600 to 650 grams, depending on configuration, and the separate battery weighs an additional 353 grams.

With these features, the Vision Pro is positioned as a high-end device, justifying its price, though it remains a significant financial investment.
