Apple is once again ready to surprise the world. Its latest innovation, the Apple Vision Pro, promises to redefine the way we experience augmented and mixed reality. We update you with the latest rumors and a reminder of the features that the 1st generation of this device will incorporate.
With revolutionary features, superior display capabilities, and a commitment to user convenience, Apple’s Vision Pro is set to revolutionize the immersive technology market. And not only that, but apparently Apple has already started working on the 2nd generation of the device.
100Hz refresh rate
One of the things that has most surprised users who have already been able to try the Apple Vision Pro is its impressive display quality. The glasses or “the computer” has screens that support a refresh rate of 100Hz. This means that the images we can view will be softer and more realistic, making it ideal for games, viewing multimedia content in general, and even immersive educational experiences.
While the default refresh rate sits at 90Hz, the Vision pro can seamlessly switch to a 96Hz mode to support video content recorded at 24fps. This adaptability guarantees that we can enjoy the best possible experience, regardless of the content we are consuming. However, the real wonder lies in the 100Hz mode. This mode will be activated strategically to compensate for the annoying 50Hz flicker that is often associated with artificial lighting.
As we have been commenting, the Apple Vision Pro will not only stand out for its power but also for the quality of the images it will give us. Equipped with two custom micro-OLED displays, it offers a combined total of 23 million pixels. To put this into perspective, that’s more pixels than you’d find on a 4K TV, and it’s delivered to each eye individually. This impressive visual quality It promises a level of immersion that was previously unimaginable.
Looking to the future
The Apple Vision Pro represents just the beginning of Apple’s journey into immersive, or mixed reality, technology. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has reported that Apple is already hard at work on models of second generation. Its focus is on reducing the size and weight of the device, as well as improving the user experience. Will the Apple Vision Pro be the new iPhone?
The Apple Vision Pro working group is considering a variety of options, including lower-end versions as well as more powerful, lighter versions of the device. The goal is to address feedback from users who reported that the 1st generation Vision Pro was a bit heavy on the head and that could detract from the user experience.
While the second-generation Vision Pro is still expected to take a few years to launch, its launch could come between 2025 and 2027, the first generation is scheduled to make its debut early next year, 2024. Therefore, apparently, Apple has a long-term commitment to this new device.
