Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, announced the Vision Pro at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2023. This is the company's newest and most-anticipated device. The headset is a separate device that can be used with both augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) apps. This gives users a wide range of options and a more realistic experience. The headset is special because it has its own 3-D camera and doesn't need a separate controller. Apple's presentation showed how the new device mixes real-world and digital experiences in a way that makes users' technology come to life in a whole new way. The Vision Pro comes to life when you use your hands, eyes, and voice to control it. It feels magical and natural, like moving real things.

The Apple Vision Pro starts at $3,499. The price goes up based on how much storage the device has and what other features it has. Even though it costs a lot, people can start reserving one today, and they should start getting them in early 2024. The device is supposed to be better than Meta's Oculus, which can be bought for a fraction of the price of the Vision Pro.

Apple has also added a new tool to Vision Pro called Optic ID, which is a way to verify your identity. It compares the user's iris to encrypted Optic ID data saved on the Secure Enclave. This makes sure that only authorized people can get in. The process lets the Apple Vision Pro be used right away and keeps the user's info safe. The Optic ID is never kept on Apple servers or made available to apps, so users can be sure that their data is safe and secure.
During the introduction, Cook made it clear that the Vision Pro was made with the technology and its privacy settings in mind. Apple cares a lot about the privacy of its users. EyeSight, a feature of the Apple Vision Pro, lets other people see what people wearing the device are doing with their faces. This gives people a feeling of privacy and consent. To keep the user's look private, eye tracking data is not shared with Apple or third-party apps or websites. The data from the device's camera and sensors is handled at the system level, so individual apps don't have to access the user's environment to create spatial experiences.
Overall, the Apple Vision Pro looks like a cool new product from Apple that will make virtual reality work well with the real world. But because the prices are so high, reviews will make their own decisions about whether or not the price is worth it. No matter what the reviews say, it is a great addition to Apple's impressive and cutting-edge line of goods.
