Apple’s AR headset Vision Pro was launched at the WWDC and this is going to be one of the most expensive products from Apple ever. It hasn’t launched in India yet, but the estimation is something around ₹2,90,000. Which is a huge amount for a device.
Why is the price sky high? Apple’s touting it as a whole new way of computing after desktop computing, mobile computing, and now with Vision Pro it’s the beginning of spatial computing. Listening to the price of the Vision Pro, investor doubts went up to such an extent that the Apple stock prices had a decline yesterday during the Vision Pro’s announcement. Apple majorly earns from its iPhones, Mac and Apple Watches. So, everyone has this mindset that the Vision Pro won’t help increase Apple’s revenue.
The expense is such that you can buy 5 quite expensive products at the same price. That too some top notch products. Let’s have a look at the list we have curated at this price.
