Mark Gurman, a Bloomberg reporter, has recently reported in his weekly newsletter, Power On, about Apple’s latest information on the Vision Pro headset. It is said that Apple plans to release a more affordable version of the headset in 2025, which Gurman previously reported back in June.
According to the new information, this cheaper version of the headset will be priced between $1,500 to $2,500 (approximately 55,000 to 90,000 baht). Apple is able to reduce costs by removing the external eye-tracking display, a feature that Gurman previously claimed Apple would not remove. Additionally, they are reducing the number of external cameras, sensors, and screen resolution, while utilizing iPhone-grade chips instead of the previous Mac-level chips.
Gurman also provided details about the development of the second generation Vision Pro headset, which is currently underway. While the first generation is set to be delivered early next year, Apple is focusing on making the smaller and lighter headset more comfortable to wear.
Lastly, Gurman shared information about a new iPad model that is rumored to be released this week. He mentioned that while there is a chance this information about the highly anticipated iPad model could come out this year, it will not be in October.
