The Apple Vision Pro

Apple Vision Pro

Apple has always been at the forefront of innovation, and the Vision Pro is a testament to that legacy. The device is a powerhouse, boasting cutting-edge features designed to cater to those ready for the next leap in blending the digital world with reality. It has two high-res cameras, six tracking cameras, four eye-tracking cameras, and more sensors than a new Honda.


In appearance, it’s similar to a Meta Quest. It comes with three hard drive options: 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB. The display is a 3D 23 million pixel system with up to 30 fps in playback. It connects to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Pros and Cons

If you love everything Apple and want a headset, you’ll want this. It’ll connect to streaming services, Apps, your iPhone, your Macbook, and anything else that’s Apple.

Cons? The battery life is only about 2 hours long. So if you plan to watch a movie or do some work, it better be a short work day or film. The second biggest con is the price tag. It’s a small fortune for most people.

If you prefer Google products or don’t have the money, there is other tech out there that can do similar things at a fraction of the cost.


$3,499 for the base model. Financing is available. 

What Will You Choose?

Technology is tempting. And though the Apple Vision Pro is undoubtedly a marvel of modern ingenuity, $3,499 can go a long way in creating unforgettable experiences and practical indulgences. 

Whether you opt for travel, personal care, everyday pleasures, or digital content, find what truly enriches your life. You can always make more money. But you only live once.
