Reaction to Apple Vision Pro

Having been described as a huge leap forward in display technology, it is clear that the display quality of the Apple Vision Pro is one of their proudest achievements. Lots of users have already mentioned that the eye and hand tracker feel like magic, and if you are immersed in a video game it feels like you are playing as the main character. It was noted the Vision Pro has perfectly integrated both mobile and computing into one carefully also blended into reality.

Some fans did complain that although the tech is innovative and special, it is way too expensive and not affordable for regular Apple customers. Some fans also stated although the headset has a battery life of over 2 hours, this isn’t enough for most movies or video games and needs to be looked at in future upgrades.
