Recently, Apple launched its new series with new technology that can change the experience of using an iPhone for watching movies and playing games. The product is an Apple Vision Pro VR/AR headset.
According to the latest newsletter from Mark Gurman, Apple is working tirelessly to address two big issues with its VR/AR headset, the Vision Pro. People who had the chance to try out the Vision Pro complained about the weight and the device’s incompatibility with different types of prescription glasses.
Gurman also reports that next-generation headset models are considering several options, including lower-end and more powerful versions. The goal is to make the device lighter so that it can be easily worn for a long time and is more comfortable.
The Apple team is also working on how to make these headset purchases simpler and more convenient for users. Apple has already decided to decrease the overall thickness of the headset, but the need to stock thousands of different lens combinations is reportedly proving difficult. The first-generation Vision Pro requires wearers of glasses to separately purchase Zeiss prescription lenses that snap onto the displays using magnets.
According to a Macrumors report, the company reportedly made this decision to reduce the overall thickness of the headset, but the need to stock thousands of different lens combinations is reportedly proving difficult. Gurman notes that this also introduces a different set of problems with sharing a headset, reselling it, and when a user’s optical prescription changes over time.
