This is not intended to be an endorsement of Apple’s new device. It is simply to let you know about this new product.
The announcement from Apple at the World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) reveals the introduction of the Apple Vision Pro, their first spatial computer. This new device aims to provide a blend of digital content with the physical world, offering a three-dimensional interface that is responsive to a user’s eyes, hands, and voice inputs.
Key Features and Highlights:
1. Vision Pro and visionOS: Vision Pro operates on visionOS, the world’s first spatial operating system. This provides users the ability to interact with digital content as if it is physically present in their space. The ultra-high-resolution display system packs 23 million pixels across two displays, backed by custom Apple silicon.
2. Infinite Canvas and Multitasking: Vision Pro allows apps to function beyond the limitations of a traditional display, enabling users to multi-task more effectively. With support for Magic Keyboard and Magic Trackpad, users can create a large, portable 4K display.
3. Immersive Entertainment: Apple Vision Pro promises to transform any space into a personal theater experience. This includes viewing movies and TV shows, and experiencing three-dimensional content with an advanced Spatial Audio system.
4. 3D Camera and Spatial FaceTime: Vision Pro features Apple’s first three-dimensional camera, allowing users to capture, relive, and immerse themselves in memories. In FaceTime, calls become spatial experiences, with life-size tiles and Spatial Audio.
5. visionOS and User Interface: Built on macOS, iOS, and iPadOS foundations, visionOS supports the low-latency requirements of spatial computing. It also features EyeSight, a feature that lets users stay connected to those around them while using Vision Pro.
6. Design and Materials: Apple Vision Pro is made from advanced materials and is designed for comfortable wear. It features a custom aluminum alloy frame and a three-dimensionally formed and laminated glass lens.
7. Hardware: Vision Pro features micro-OLED technology in its ultra-high-resolution display system. It also has an advanced Spatial Audio system and a high-performance eye tracking system. All of this is powered by Apple silicon in a unique dual-chip design.
8. Privacy and Security: Apple Vision Pro includes a new secure authentication system, Optic ID, which uses the Secure Enclave to protect a user’s iris data. Also, the eye tracking information and data from other sensors are processed at the system level, keeping a user’s private information secure.
9. Price and Availability: The Apple Vision Pro will be available starting at $3,499 (U.S.) early next year.
This new product aims to revolutionize personal computing, following in the footsteps of the Mac and iPhone, by introducing users to the world of spatial computing. With features such as spatial FaceTime, a 3D camera, and spatial operating system, Apple continues its trajectory of innovative product development.
