The Apple Vision Pro is finally going on sale in the UK this June, bringing Brits the chance to experience their personal electronics in a brand-new way.


This "spatial computer" – or headset in layman’s terms – combines virtual reality, augmented reality and just plain old reality into one device that can accomplish gaming, working, entertainment and so much more.

Apple first released the Vision Pro in the US this February, but is now extending the availability to China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Australia and Canada, as well as European countries France, Germany, and the UK.

In the press release, Apple CEO Tim Cook said: "The enthusiasm for Apple Vision Pro has been extraordinary, and we are thrilled to introduce the magic of spatial computing to more customers around the world.

"We can’t wait for more people to see the impossible become possible, whether working and collaborating with an infinite canvas for apps, reliving treasured memories in three dimensions, watching TV shows and movies in a one-of-a-kind personal cinema, or enjoying brand-new spatial experiences that defy imagination."

We all know Apple likes to use descriptions like "revolutionary spatial computer," but what does this actually mean?

Well the Apple Vision Pro is essentially a VR headset, a bit like the Meta Quest 3 or the PSVR2, except it does much more than just gaming.

With the Apple Vision Pro, you have access to hundreds of apps powered by visionOS, and you interact with them simply by looking at the desired app and tapping your fingers together. You can also type on a virtual keyboard or ask Siri to select things for you.

For working, the Vision Pro can access business apps like Slack, Zoom and Microsoft 365. For entertainment, it has all the major streaming apps so you can watch TV shows and films through the lense, or you can put yourself right in the thick of the action with Immersive Video. And for gaming it has more than 250 titles through Apple Arcade – some of which are specifically designed for the immersive experience like Job Simulator.

If you want the techy bit, the Apple Vision Pro has an ultra-high-resolution display system using micro-OLED technology to pack 23 million pixels into each eye. It uses a high-performance eye tracking system to respond to your eye movement and Personalised Spatial Audio to create the feeling that sounds are coming from the space around you. Lastly it uses Apple’s flagship M2 processing chip and the input from 12 cameras, five sensors, and six microphones to make sure that what you see feels right in front of you.
