How to Buy the Apple Vision Pro AR/VR Headset

Have $3,499 to splurge on a new Apple product? Apple has announced the release date for its much-awaited Vision Pro AR/VR headset. If you’re interested in being an early adopter, read on as we’ll discuss everything you need to know to order one.

When and How Can You Pre-Order the Vision Pro Headset?

If you’re in the United States, you can pre-order Apple Vision Pro starting Friday, January 19, 2024, at 5 AM PST (8 AM EST). You’ll be able to pre-order it from Apple’s Vision Pro product page.

However, expect the product to sell out quickly. According to Bloomberg’s reports, Apple isn’t producing the Vision Pro in huge numbers like it does iPhones and iPads. So if you want to increase your chances of ordering one successfully, we highly recommend visiting the product page at exactly 8 AM Eastern on January 19.

If you don’t live in the United States, you’ll have to play the waiting game, as Apple hasn’t announced any plans for a global launch.

When Will Apple Vision Pro Hit Stores?

Apple Vision Pro will be available at Apple Store Online and physical Apple Stores across the United States starting February 2, 2024. It’s unclear if the headset will be available for purchase from retail stores. But Apple has sent out emails to select customers, prompting them to sign up for a demo when it’s available, as reported by The Verge:

Starting at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, February 2, we invite you to sign up for a demo of Apple Vision Pro at your local Apple Store. Demo times will be available Friday through the weekend on a first-come, first-served basis.

Unfortunately, we have no information on when Apple will bring the Vision Pro headset to other regions like Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa.

What’s in the Vision Pro’s Box?

For $3,499, you don’t just get the Vision Pro AR/VR headset. Looking at Apple’s Newsroom post confirms that the company has bundled some accessories as well:

  • Solo Knit Band
  • Dual Loop Band
  • Light Seal
  • Two Light Seal Cushions
  • Apple Vision Pro Cover for the visor
  • Polishing cloth
  • Battery
  • USB-C charging cable and power adapter

Additionally, Apple will offer two types of ZEIS Optical Inserts (for $99 and $149) for those who wear glasses. The Vision Pro headset will come with 256GB of built-in storage, but it’s unclear if Apple plans to sell more expensive variants with higher storage capacities.

The Vision Pro headset marks Apple’s entry into the AR/VR market, competing against the likes of the Meta Quest Pro and other great VR headsets currently available. We’ll have to wait and see how Apple’s spatial computing device pans out in the long run. Either way, we’re excited to get our hands on a completely new Apple product.
