Title: The First REAL Apple Vision Pro Hands-on by Apple Insider By: Tyriel Wood - VR Tech
The reviewer discusses the first real hands-on experience with the Apple Vision Pro headset, which is described as more of an AR headset than a VR headset. The setup process is said to be easy, using the iPhone to calibrate vision and audio. The reviewer also mentions the ability to add magnetic glass inserts for those who wear glasses. The field of view is stated to be similar to other headsets on the market, and the video pass-through is described as providing crisp and clear images in well-lit areas. Eye tracking and gesture control are commended as a good input method, although using Safari and other apps can feel clunky and less natural than on other Apple devices. The availability of apps for the Vision Pro is limited, but the ability to use iPad apps in a mixed reality environment is mentioned. The battery life is criticized as being low, with only around an hour of use before needing to be recharged, although the inclusion of the MagSafe mechanism for charging is appreciated. Comfort is also mentioned as a negative, with the weight of the headset being mostly in the front and causing discomfort during extended use. The headset is said to get warm during use. Overall, the reviewer finds the experience with the Apple Vision Pro to be enjoyable, but notes that improvements in battery life and comfort are needed.
