Report claims that there will be four different versions of the second gen Apple Vision Pro

No, the Apple Vision Pro won’t replace the iPad (or any other Apple device).

I’m a bit skeptical, but a DigiTimes report (which requires a subscription) claims that the second-generation Apple Vision Pro headset will include four versions, one of which will be more price-friendly.

The first generation of the US$3,499 (and higher) Spatial Computer isn’t due until, in Apple’s words “early) 2024 (which I suspect means sometime in March). However, it will apparently only be available in limited quantities at first. 

According to DigiTimes, one of the four second gen Spatial Computers will be a direct follow-up to the first gen system. The second will be a more affordable model (perhaps $1,500 or so), and the report doesn’t clarify what the other two models might be.

In June, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman said that a second-generation high-end model and a lower-end headset that should include these features:

  • The ability to show multiple Mac desktop screens when connected wirelessly to a Vision Pro (the first version only supports one desktop view at a time).
  • The ability for multiple Vision Pro users in a several-person FaceTime conference to use Personas (the realistic VR version of a wearer based on a face scan). The first version will only support one-to-one chats with Personas. 
  • Fitness+ and the ability to work out while wearing the headset with virtual fitness content.
