Apple’s Vision Pro Mixed-Reality Headset Debuts, but Some Users Find It Heavy

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Apple executives discussed the weight of the newly launched Vision Pro mixed-reality headset.

Some reviewers and users have complained about its heaviness, but Apple executives explained that they could not have made it lighter.

The Vision Pro, made from materials like magnesium, carbon fiber, and aluminum, has drawn attention to its weight.

Richard Howarth, Apple’s vice president of industrial design, said, “There is nothing we could have done to make it lighter or smaller.”

Meanwhile, Mike Rockwell, vice president of Apple’s Vision Products Group, emphasized that they packed much technology into such a compact design.

Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, also acknowledged the headset’s evolution, noting that it used to be much bulkier and less wearable. “You were not wearing it at that time,” he admitted.

The Vision Pro, launched in the US, weighs between 21.2 and 22.9 ounces, depending on the headband and light seals chosen.

Some reviewers have found it uncomfortable to wear for extended periods, describing sensations like it “weighing on the cheeks” or a “face crush.”

Despite this, Apple maintains they did their best to make it as light as possible.
