Summary of opinions after the first analyzes of the Apple Vision Pro by technology experts

Below we summarize the general impressions that the Apple Vision Pro has received on social networks.

What do the first experts to test the Apple Vision Pro think?

The mixed reality experience is incredible and exceeds expectations

One of the most talked about aspects in the analyzes published so far of the Apple Vision Pro is its “transparency” or ability to continue viewing the real environment while using the device. That's why Apple places so much emphasis on mixed reality and not in virtual or augmented reality. Analysts agree that this feature is impressive compared to the competition, but it still has its limitations. It still has room for improvement because in low light environments, sharpness is reduced due to noise reduction compensation. However, most experts agree that for a first version, it exceeds expectations.

Controlling the Vision Pro with your hands

One more notable feature of the Apple Vision Pro is its intuitive hand interaction capability. Users do not need to extend their hands as they can use pinch gestures and eye detection with eye movement to interact with the device. However, this may have limitations if the device cannot see the user's hands, which may occur depending on the posture we adopt. One of the things that most experts who have already tested the device have reported is that gesture detection is based on the direction of gaze and the position of the hands, so it is important Keep your hands in the field of vision of the device.

How are applications organized in visionOS?

Each home screen page can display up to 13 apps in its grid, and installed apps appear on new pages as they are installed. The organization of these applications is alphabetical. However, unlike iOS and iPadOS, There is no option to change the order of the pages or to pin favorite apps to the first page. At least, not yet. This could be a drawback for those who install many applications. Luckily it is something quite simple to correct and something that Apple will surely pay attention to in future visionOS updates.

Optic ID may not always work perfectly

Apple's Optic ID is the form of biometric authentication based on eye tracking. This feature has been touted as an important feature included in the Apple Vision Pro. However, analysts who have so far been able to test the product report in their written and video reviews that this feature does not always work perfectly. . For example, in the analysis carried out in Tom's Guide magazine, it is mentioned that the Optic ID failed sometimes during testing and that in some cases the PIN code had to be used to unlock the device from a floating keyboard on the visionOS interface.

Possible problems with the battery and cable

The Apple Vision Pro presents a peculiarity in terms of its battery, since it is connected to the device. The battery, which weighs 353 grams alone, is heavier than an iPhone. Although it is recommended to carry it in your pocket, the length of the cable could be an inconvenience for some users. If the cable becomes tangled, it is necessary to disconnect it from the headset to straighten it. While the battery life of about 2 hours of general use and 2.5 hours of video viewing is sufficient for short sessions, the ability to plug in the battery via a USB-C adapter for continuous use is a plus.

In short, the Apple Vision Pro has arrived to revolutionize the world of technology completely. Despite some understandable initial limitations in a first version of such an innovative device, it promises to offer a unique mixed reality experience.
