The well-known repair website iFixit published a textual and video deconstruction of the Apple Vision Pro, providing a look inside the mixed-reality headset.
iFixit’s disassembly of the Vision Pro reveals a variety of internal components, including cameras and sensors, fans, lens motors, and more. Unsurprisingly, opening and repairing the headgear will be challenging.
An M2 chip with an 8-core CPU, a 10-core GPU, a 16-core Neural Engine, and 16GB of unified memory powers the Vision Pro. Other features include up to 1TB of storage and an all-new R1 chip, which “processes information from 12 cameras, five sensors, and six microphones to ensure that material feels like it is displaying immediately in front of the users’ eyes.”
Wallpaper* published a photograph of the Vision Pro’s internals on Friday as part of an exclusive Vision Pro design interview with Alan Dye, Apple’s vice president of software design, and Richard Howarth, vice president of hardware design.
According to Howarth, Apple developed the Vision Pro with “a variety of flexible materials and nice textures,” such as the Solo Knit Band, so that customers would “not only feel physically comfortable wearing it but also like wearing it, among others.”
Apple announced that Vision Pro will be available in other countries later this year, following its Friday launch in the United States.
