EyeSight Feature

Vision Pro Specs and Price

Vision Pro is designed in such a way that your eyes would be visible the moment someone comes in front of you. It also lets them know what you are busy with. While using apps your eyes will slightly be foamed with light and on being fully immersed, they won’t be able to see your eyes as a signal that you are into something and cannot see them anymore.  In simple words, an outward display reveals your eyes while wearing Vision Pro, letting others know when you are using apps or fully.

Audio and Video

Speakers in Vision Pro are located close to your ears to ensure rich Spatial Audio while keeping you aware of your surroundings. Experience ambient spatial audio with the new Spatial Audio Engine feature that uses the integrated dual-driver audio pods enabling personalized sound. The spatial 3D videos can now be watched at 4K resolution. The best-advanced feature that Apple innovated for FaceTime was the encoder-decoder neural network that creates a digital persona of you for the person who is the face- timing you. This means that your Vision Pro won’t block your face during your video calls.  So, enjoy spatial video and audio that provides a life-size view of your friends and family.


Vision Pro

Vision Pro uses a dual chip design combining M2 and R1 chipsets running on the powerful operating system called visionOS. New capabilities were added to this operating system like the new Real-time subsystem for handling workloads, a Foveated Renderer to ensure high image quality, a Multi-App 3D design for running many apps smoothly in one simulation, and Spatial Frameworks for enabling spatial experiences.

  • The M2 chip boosts the performance with its Core 12 CPU, Core  38 GPU, and a 16 Core Neural engine.
  • The new R1 chip used in this process inputs 12 cameras, 5 sensors, and 6 microphones. It also eliminates virtual lag and streams new images to displays within 12 milliseconds which is 8X faster than the blink of an eye.

So while the powerful M2 chip ensures performance efficiency, the R1 chip helps the users enjoy a real-time visual experience.
