Apple Vision Pro pre-orders have begun with initial availability in two weeks, February 2nd, 2024. As outlined before, Apple Visoin Pro starts at $3499 for the 256GB model. While there has been some additional previous available, but that information was limited. I thought it would make sense to provide additional specs and options available, because these have not been previously announced.
In order to pre-order an Apple Vision Pro you need to have an iPhone with Face ID, since face scanning is done to determine the proper light shield and headband size. On January 8th, Apple announced what would be included with the Apple Vision Pro as well as lens options. There are two lens options, readers for $99 and prescription lenses for $149. One thing that was not previously outlined, but has seen been made known is that you will need to have a current and valid prescription from a provider.
