It will take up to four generations for the Apple Vision Pro to reach its ‘ideal form’

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple Vision Pro — the company’s first mixed reality headset that went on sale in the US this month — has some bugs for a first-generation Apple product, but could eventually replace the iPad. The company’s wearable ‘spatial computer’, priced at $3,500 (roughly Rs. 2.9 lakh), is currently available in the US and offers support for both augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) content and at the same time as the headset. Over 600 apps were available. Launched.

The folks at Vision Products Group — involved in the development of the headset — think it could take Apple up to four generations until the Vision Pro hits its “ideal form,” Gurman writes in his latest edition. Weekly Power On NewsletterPointing out that this was also the case for Apple’s early smartphone, tablet, and smartwatch models.

Gurman wrote in his review of Apple’s Vision Pro headset that the VisionOS operating system is patchy and feels like it is “a beta version and is yet to be refined enough for consumers to use on a day-to-day basis.” It’s about a year away.” He also says that the Vision Pro could eventually replace Apple’s iPad and allow users to perform the same tasks they can on a tablet.

One of the earliest issues that may affect early adopters of the Apple Vision Pro is related to the device’s authentication system. As Bloomberg reports, if a user forgets their Vision Pro passcode, they’ll need to bring the headset to an Apple Store to reset it.

Software support for the Vision Pro will also need to increase significantly before it can be considered a viable alternative to the iPad. At the moment, there are no official apps for Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube for the Vision Pro. It’s worth noting that YouTube recently did a U-turn and said an official app was in the works, shortly after Juno, a third-party app for the headset, arrived on the App Store.

A recent report suggests that the Vision Pro will be launched in China by May with a different name. According to the report, the mixed reality headset is called Vision Pro in the US, while rival Huawei has a trademark of the same name in China. The first batch of headset sales in China will reportedly be “relatively tight.”
