Apple Intelligence to Integrate into Vision Pro Headset

Apple Intelligence is coming to the Vision Pro headset for a more intuitive experience amid a slow start for the AR headset.

-

is bringing its advanced artificial intelligence, known as Apple Intelligence, to the Vision Pro mixed-reality headset. This addition aims at making the device more user-friendly and responsive. The Vision Pro, a key element in Apple's augmented reality (AR) and strategies, will see enhanced functionality thanks to these AI improvements.

Enhanced In-Store Demonstrations

Apple is also upgrading the in-store demo experiences for the Vision Pro. A new feature called “Go Deeper” lets users explore various office tools and watch videos through the headset. The demos will now use the Dual Loop band for better weight distribution and comfort, moving away from the single-strap Solo Loop band. Shoppers will have the chance to view their own videos and photos, including panoramas, within the headset. With the launch of visionOS 2 this fall, a “spatialize” function will allow 2D photos to be converted into 3D images, making the user experience more engaging.

Nonetheless, the high cost of the Vision Pro remains an issue for Apple. The company is reportedly developing a more affordable version, potentially launching by the end of next year. There is some uncertainty about whether this cheaper model will feature lower-resolution displays or maintain the high-resolution ones seen in the current version. Creating a cost-effective headset has proven challenging for Apple.

Although the Vision Pro has yet to become a mainstream success, it's still early days. The introduction of AI features and improved demos could enhance its attractiveness. However, the prohibitive price remains a barrier to wider adoption. Without a cheaper alternative, the Vision Pro may remain a specialized product as Apple continues to aim for lightweight AR glasses.

Apple Intelligence and User Experience

Incorporating Apple Intelligence into Vision Pro is predicted to deliver a more interactive and engaging experience. This AI will boost the device's capabilities, making it more intuitive for users. New “Go Deeper” in-store demos will show potential buyers the practical uses of the Vision Pro, from entertainment to professional settings.

Announced at WWDC 2024 last month, Apple Intelligence will be available on the iPhone 15 Pro15 Pro Max, and devices with M1 or later chips, beginning this fall with iOS 18iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia. Siri will receive new functionalities including managing notifications, text generation, email summarization, and performing actions across multiple apps.
