For users with vision correction, the brand included Zeiss Optical Inserts to ensure visual fidelity and eye-tracking accuracy.

Inside the Spatial Computer, it is using a custom Apple M2 chip with dual-core and it is accompanied by a brand new R1 chip that processes input from 12 cameras, 5 sensors, and 6 microphones ensuring that content will always appear before your eyes. Apple noted that it streams images to the displays in 12ms, making it 8 times faster than the blink of an eye.

The brand says the device can last up to 2 hours using a high-performance custom portable battery, while you may use it nonstop when plugged into the wall.

The headset can also be unlocked with your retina via the Optic ID, a brand-new authentication system with next-level security by analyzing your iris.

Another notable feature is EyeSight which reveals your eyes and allows those nearby to know you're using apps or watching. Simultaneously, the headset lets you see the person and reveals your eyes to them.

The 3D interface of visionOS enables apps to appear side by side at any size. Additionally, Magic Keyboard and Magic Trackpad are supported, allowing you to set up a workspace and wirelessly connect your Mac to the Vision Pro.
