Next Apple Vision Pro to Be Smaller, Lighter, and More Wearable: Mark Gurman

Apple is planning to release the second-generation Apple Vision Pro headset in early 2024, with a focus on reducing its weight and size, as reported by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. Meanwhile, Meta, the parent company of Facebook, is working on lowering the price of its upcoming headsets, including the Meta Quest 3.

The initial Apple Vision Pro was introduced at the WWDC 2023 event and is set to hit the market in the coming months. However, Apple is already addressing concerns about the weight and size of the device in its successor, aiming to make it lighter and more compact.

Gurman also highlights challenges faced by the Apple Vision Pro, such as accommodating users who wear glasses. The first-generation headset requires users to purchase prescription lenses from Zeiss, which can be attached magnetically. However, this approach may complicate device sharing, particularly when users have different prescription needs.

Meta is closely monitoring Apple's developments as it prepares to launch its own wearable headset next year. Both companies are targeting customers interested in productivity and gaming. Meta has shifted its focus away from the metaverse concept to compete more directly with Apple.

While Apple seeks to reduce the size of its next headset, Meta plans to make its upcoming device more affordable than the Quest 3. This may involve selling the headset separately from controllers, requiring customers to purchase them separately.

Meta's recently unveiled Ray-Ban sunglasses lack AR functionality, aside from capturing images and videos, taking calls, and playing music. However, the company aims to launch AR display glasses by 2025, according to Gurman.
