Apple has unveiled an at-home shopping experience that allows customers to easily personalise and purchase the new Vision Pro with the help of an Apple Specialist via chat or phone.

Customers can pre-order the Vision Pro, along with accessories and AppleCare+, ensuring a comprehensive shopping experience.

The Apple Vision Pro seamlessly integrates digital content with the physical world, offering powerful spatial experiences that transform work, collaboration, connection, memory reliving, entertainment, and much more. Available in Apple Store locations and for delivery from Friday, 12th July, the Vision Pro aims to redefine the way users interact with technology.

How to buy Apple Vision Pro

Both in-store and online, customers can receive personalised advice on purchasing and setting up the Vision Pro. Apple specialists are available to provide shopping support every step of the way, including financing options. When ordering the Vision Pro, customers will use an iPhone or iPad with Face ID and the latest version of the Apple Store app to complete a face scan. This scan ensures an optimal fit by helping users find the appropriate Light Seal and headband sizes. For users needing vision correction, Apple has partnered with ZEISS to develop ZEISS Optical Inserts that magnetically attach to Vision Pro, enhancing the display’s sharpness and clarity.

After purchasing, customers can choose to pick up their Vision Pro at a local Apple Store or have it delivered to their home. Additionally, a free, 30-minute virtual session can be scheduled to learn more about unboxing, fitting, navigating visionOS, and other features.

Book a demo for Apple Vision Pro

Starting today, customers can book a personal one-on-one demo of the Vision Pro through the Apple Store online, with availability at UK Apple Store locations beginning Friday, 12th July. During these demos, Apple team members will assist customers in finding the best fit and setting up their device. Customers will also have the opportunity to explore the vast capabilities of spatial computing, from entertainment experiences to an infinite canvas for favourite apps.

The App Store on Apple Vision Pro

The App Store has over 2,000 apps designed specifically for the Vision Pro, in addition to more than 1.5 million compatible iOS and iPadOS apps, and numerous Mac apps using Mac Virtual Display that work seamlessly together.

Leading business and productivity tools such as Box, Webex, Zoom, and Microsoft 365 apps help users collaborate with colleagues and complete daily tasks. As the ultimate entertainment device, Vision Pro supports top streaming services like Disney+, more than 100 3D movies, social apps like TikTok, and SharePlay with spatial Persona. Gamers can enjoy thousands of games, including spatial games like Game Room, Super Fruit Ninja, and Warped Kart Racers, available through Apple Arcade. The Apple TV app and App Store also offer groundbreaking storytelling experiences unique to spatial computing, including Apple Immersive Video and Encounter Dinosaurs.
