Apple’s first augmented reality headset, the Vision Pro, will be available to consumers in February.

The company has announced that its first headset is being introduced to consumers on February 2.

It should be noted that Apple presented its first mixed reality headset Vision Pro to the world in June 2023.

It was the first major device introduced by the company in 8 years, before the Apple Watch was introduced in 2015.

But at that time the device was not offered for sale and it was said that it will be available to people sometime in 2024.

The Vision Pro is basically a full iOS computer designed as a virtual reality (VR) headset.

This headset has the ability to blend real world and virtual objects.

The company has also given details of a few features while announcing its sale date.

The headset will be equipped with 256 GB of storage and will initially be available only in the US.

According to the company, people who wear eyeglasses will need to wear special lenses to use the Vision Pro, which will cost between $99 and $149.

Introducing the device in June, Alan Dye, Apple’s vice president of human interface division, said that the headset would allow users to experience an AR version of their surroundings or a full virtual reality location.

Controlling the Vision Pro relies on your eyes, hands and voice, you can browse different parts of the system just by looking, he said.

He said that there is a transparent screen on the front of the device so that you can see your surroundings.

It is possible to run iOS apps on this device, meaning FaceTime can be used with AR technology.

The Vision Pro features a 3D camera that can be used to capture photos and experience VR technology.

Similarly, the device has a 4k display in front of each eye while the M2 processor is used.

The company claims that this device is a replacement for TVs, surround sound systems, powerful laptops and gaming consoles.

The price of this headset is 3499 dollars.
