When Is The Apple Vision Pro Coming To Australia And How Much Does It Cost?

The latest release from Apple has caused quite a stir. The tech giant’s foray into VR and AR territory has been met with a mixed response, but it’s hard for Aussies to weigh in, seeing as we can’t even get one here yet. So that raises the question: when will the Apple Vision Pro be released in Australia? Let’s investigate.

What is the Vision Pro?

A quick explainer for those who don’t know. Apple’s Vision Pro is the company’s mixed-reality headset, blending both virtual and augmented reality.

The headset uses an R1 chip that powers 12 cameras, five sensors, six microphones, two Micro OLED displays, eye-tracking capabilities, and spatial audio.

The Vision Pro has a range of functions. Apple calls it a “spatial computer”. You can use many of Apple’s built-in apps while wearing the headset, like browsing on Safari, taking FaceTime calls and watching movies and TV shows through various streaming apps.

It also has an Eyesight capability that mimics the appearance of your face and eyes as you wear the headset and a transparency capability that allows you to view and interact with your environment normally while wearing the headset.

At its WWDC conference Apple announced some of the new features being integrated in visionOS 2, including a new ability to create spatial memories directly from photos in your library and upgraded gesture recognition and activity.

The Apple Vision Pro was officially launched on February 2 and was made availably only for U.S. buyers.

Rumours that the Apple Vision Pro would get a global launch around the time of the WWDC conference turned out to be correct as the tech giant finally unveiled when the headset would be coming to more countries.

Customers in Australia (along with Canada, France, Germany, and the U.K.) will be able to pre-order the Apple Vision Pro on June 28 with availability starting on July 12.
