Apple has opened pre-orders for its groundbreaking spatial computer, Vision Pro, in the United States. This revolutionary device, priced at $3,499, marks the beginning of a new era in computing and is now available for purchase through Apple’s website. Read on to learn more about Vision Pro and how to pre-order it.

Apple has not yet announced an official release date for Vision Pro in Europe. However, some reports suggest that it could be available in late 2024 or early 2025. This is based on Apple’s typical rollout schedule for new products, as well as the company’s recent focus on expanding its presence in the European market.

In the meantime, European customers can still pre-order Vision Pro from Apple’s US website and have it shipped to Europe.

However, they should be aware that they may be subject to additional import duties and taxes.

How to pre-order Apple Vision Pro

To pre-order Vision Pro, you’ll need an iPhone or iPad with Face ID.

When you buy the device, you’ll scan your face twice so Apple knows your sizing information for the VIsion Pro’s Light Seal and headbands. During this process, you’ll be asked to look up, down, left, and right two times.

Head to the Apple Store app on your iPhone or Vision Pro to pre-order yours. Vision Pro will be sent by February 2, 2024. If you order from Europe, you’ll probably need to wait a bit more.

In the Vision Pro box, you shluld find:

  • Solo Knit Band and Dual Loop Band — giving users two options for the fit that works best
  • Light Seal
  • 2x Light Seal Cushions
  • Apple Vision Pro Cover for the front of the device 
  • Polishing Cloth
  • Battery
  • USB-C Charge Cable
  • USB-C Power Adapter

Additionally, if you wear glasses, you’ll need to submit a valid prescription from your eye doctor after checkout. Apple is teaming up with Zeiss to sell Optical Inserts for Vision Pro:

  • ZEISS Optical Inserts — Readers are available for $99
  • ZEISS Optical Inserts — Prescriptions are available for $149

As of right now, Vision Pro is only available in the United States. Apple has said that the device will launch elsewhere in the world sometime later this year.
