Here’s the crux of the article in video form:

Apple, known for its innovative products and cutting-edge technology, recently unveiled its latest creation, the Apple Vision Pro. The mixed reality headset promises to revolutionize the way we interact with the world.

With advanced features like augmented reality (AR) capabilities, an impressive display, and state-of-the-art sensors, it opens up a new world of possibilities.

However, the staggering price of $3,500 has raised eyebrows and sparked a wave of skepticism (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9).

Several people believe that such a high price point will severely limit the number of buyers and hinder widespread adoption of the device.

Despite its remarkable features, it may become a niche product that only a select few can afford, rather than a mainstream device that integrates seamlessly into people’s daily lives.

If the device remains exclusive to a small number of users due to its price, it may create a barrier to its integration into the broader Apple ecosystem.

The success of previous Apple products, such as iPhones and iPads, can be attributed in part to their wide availability and widespread adoption.

Apple Vision Pro is neat tech, however it may not be worth the price tag. AR is cool but if I’m going to wear a massive headset, immerse me in full VR. I don’t leap with excitement for Augmented Reality.

Has potential for the future if Apple continues to iterate on it, but this version of Vision Pro is pretty much DOA.
What worries me most is that at this price point they won’t even be selling enough devices to realise scaling effects to make future version cheaper.

Battery life is a crucial factor when considering any portable device. Vision Pro users expected their devices to last throughout the day without constantly worrying about recharging.

However, a 2-hour battery life, while suitable for short-term tasks, may be insufficient for those who rely on the device for extended periods or on-the-go usage (1,2,3,4,5,6).

Imagine being in the middle of an important business presentation or a creative project, only to have the device’s battery drain quickly, interrupting your workflow.

Similarly, frequent travelers who rely on their devices for communication, navigation, and entertainment during long journeys may find the limited battery life to be a major inconvenience.

Furthermore, the Vision Pro’s intended purpose as an augmented reality device introduces additional power demands.

Users who intend to utilize the Vision Pro for immersive AR experiences may find that the 2-hour battery life severely limits their ability to engage with the technology for extended periods.

Let’s see Vision Pro has no controllers, no proper battery, can’t play games, can’t be used for exercise. Meanwhile Quest 3 and even the previous device Quest 2 can do everything it can and more. If you’re a sane person, you know what you’re buying.

The announcement of the Vision Pro at a higher-than-expected price has led to a decline in the shares of Apple suppliers, as investors question the market demand for this newly unveiled device.

The uncertainty surrounding consumer willingness to invest in such an expensive gadget has raised doubts about the long-term success and profitability of the Vision Pro.

Some optimistic users say that in the future version if Apple tweaks a few things, Vision Pro can be a huge success:

What the Apple Vision V2 or non pro model needs to be a consumer success:

  1. MSRP < $2000
  2. At least 2 hours of on device battery power
  3. 6 hours additional with battery pack
  4. More compact design (20% thinner)
  5. Dev support


That said, the company has a loyal customer base that values quality, innovation, and the overall Apple experience.

While the initial price may deter some potential buyers, Apple’s reputation and marketing prowess may still generate enough demand to make the 1st-gen Vision Pro a success.
