The Apple Vision Pro can turn into your best friend onboard a boring flight, as demonstrated by a Microsoft executive. During an excruciatingly long journey lasting 16 hours from Seattle to Dubai, the AR headset owner revealed that you can transform your entire cabin into an entertainment hub. However, the software giant’s executive does point out some caveats of using the bulky contraption for extended periods, with additional details discussed here.
As expected, the Apple Vision Pro is a bit uncomfortable to use, which wearers have to get used to onboard a 16-hour flight
Even though the Apple Vision Pro lasts for around two hours during everyday use on a single charge, Microsoft Word head Omar Shahine demonstrated that the $3,499 headset can easily be mounted on your head enroute a long and exhausting flight. Flying business class in Emirates’ Boeing 777 aircraft, he successfully transformed his entire cabin into a gigantic screen and loved the entire experience. Connecting to the Wi-Fi service did not come with any difficulties, with Omar stating that he was ‘blown away by the experience.’

He has shared a few images showing what it is like using the Apple Vision Pro just in case buyers are skeptical about forking over massive sums of money, only to be left disappointed by their purchase. Even though in-flight entertainment systems have improved over the years, having an unrestricted, three-dimensional screen for media consumption and web browsing brings unrivaled competition.
Of course, this recent 16-hour expedition does not mean that Boeing will start replacing their in-flight entertainment systems with Apple Vision Pro units anytime soon, but we do get a small glimpse of what the future will be like. However, with this superb experience come a few caveats. Given the massive size of the Apple Vision Pro, Omar has complained that the headset can become too comfortable to use and hopes he gets used to it.
His ‘feedback’ is parallel to various other headset owners, who have spoken about the same drawbacks, giving sufficient information to Apple to use in its next iteration, whenever that may be. For those who think that an airplane’s in-flight entertainment system is too mainstream, the Apple Vision Pro is definitely the product for you.

The Apple Vision Pro is a sturdy piece of glass and aluminum, but at the front, a previous scratch test revealed that the company used plastic, so getting permanent marks on it would take little effort. However, multiple owners are reporting that the front side of their AR headset are showing a crack while the device is just being stored and doing nothing else. This kind of occurrence would make anyone livid who has to fork $3,499 for a head-mounted wearable, and that too, for the measly base storage of 256GB.

An earlier rumor was disseminating information that Apple had halted work on its foldable iPhone because there were durability concerns regarding the display. Now, a new update claims that the technology giant is actively developing the device and has actually reassigned some key personnel hailing from the Apple Vision Pro team to work on this new form factor.

The Apple Vision Pro has divided opinion ever since the company showcased it at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2023. At the time, people only judged it on its price, features and its competition. But now that Apple has started selling the Vision Pro, users have got a chance to try it and formulate their opinions. While some are calling it the tech of the future, others have criticized it as an “isolated experience” and some have indicated discomfort while using the gadget. In fact, some of the early adopters of the Apple Vision Pro are having second thoughts too and are returning the headsets for several reasons. Bloomberg columnist Mark Bloomberg tells the tale and adds a twist at the end.
Apple on Thursday announced the arrival of new "spatial games" that are designed to work on the company's recently launched Apple Vision Pro headset. These games are designed to run on visionOS and are available to Apple Arcade subscribers, according to the company. Users will be able to interact with these games using hand gestures, while viewing elements in an immersive mode that uses augmented reality (AR) technology. Meanwhile, a total of 250 non-spatial titles can also be accessed on the mixed reality headset.
It was recently reported that Apple is planning a major redesign for its next generation of iPhone SE. The device is expected to ditch the older look with Touch ID in favor of a more modern iPhone 16-like design. However, a sketchy rumor now claims that Apple could merge the iPhone SE with the iPhone 16 lineup. While details are scarce at this stage, the tipster advises to take the news with a grain of salt.
In 2023, Apple announced its first-ever venture in the world of AR/VR, taking on heavyweights such as Meta. The iPhone maker's first spatial computer, which it calls the Vision Pro, finally went on sale last month and it has divided opinions ever since. Some say it is the tech of the future, while others call it incredibly isolating. But with an ever-growing library of apps, Apple is seriously looking to trump Meta in the world of mixed reality, even though its headset costs as much as 7 times more. In a new video, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg shared his thoughts on Apple's new headset and compared it to his company's Quest headset.
The Internet is extremely unforgiving. Whatever you put on it will be preserved in some fashion, for better or worse, and it's a lesson still being learned in the year 2024. Case in point: the LinkedIn page of a Microsoft employee, who may have added yet more evidence to the heavily rumoured move from Xbox to publish its games on other consoles.
The Apple Vision Pro has garnered attention for its advanced mixed reality capabilities, but its hefty price tag of $3499 has made it inaccessible to many consumers. Fortunately, there are more budget-friendly alternatives available. Check out the Apple Vision Pro alternative called XREAL Air 2 Pro.
