Apple Vision Pro 2 launch is at least 18 months away, according to a report.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • According to a new report, Apple’s second-generation headset will not arrive until next year.
  • The Vision Pro debuted last year and went on sale earlier this month.
  • Apple’s first mixed-reality headset is also the company’s most ambitious product to date.

Apple launched its first mixed-reality headset, the Vision Pro, last year, and it will be available in the United States this month. Apple was expected to release the second-generation Vision Pro this year, but according to a new report, we won’t see one for another 18 months. So it appears that we will have to wait even longer for the Apple Vision Pro 2.

Apple Vision Pro 2 launch timeline (anticipated)

  • According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the Apple Vision Pro 2 launch is at least 18 months away.
  • This suggests that the second-generation Vision Pro could be released around August 2025. However, given Apple’s strict product launch timelines, we may only see the Vision Pro 2 at WWDC 2025, or even alongside the iPhone 17 lineup next year. It will be a long wait for anyone hoping to get their hands on the Apple Vision Pro 2.
  • This information was shared in Gurman’s Power On newsletter, which primarily discussed how Apple’s loyal customers are returning the Vision Pro.

The Vision Pro is a large device with an even larger price tag of $3,499 (approximately Rs 2,90,680). This applies only to the base model, which has 256GB of onboard storage. This is Apple’s first mixed-reality headset, so there will be some limitations, and it is expected to serve as a test bed for the next-generation model.

Meta CEO Zuckerberg also had a lot to say about the Vision Pro, comparing it to the Quest 3. Zuck believes that the Quest Quest 3 is “not just a better value product, but it is a better product, period.” He lists several key areas where the Vision Pro outperforms Apple’s headset, including its affordable price tag, which is $3,000 less.

Apple has yet to announce global availability for the Vision Pro, but it is expected to go on sale before WWDC 2024. There is also talk of a more affordable Vision Pro, but this is still speculative.
