January 22, 2024  14:20

Repairing the Apple Vision Pro MR headset will cost as much as the most expensive MacBook - M3 Pro MacBook Pro with 1TB memory. According to Wccftech, the most expensive component, the EyeSight curved display, will cost $2,399 to repair.

Replacing scratched or broken EyeSight glass costs $799. And if the display itself breaks, you will have to pay $2,399 to repair it. For that kind of money, as already noted, you can buy the most expensive laptop from Apple. And if you pay another $1000, you can buy the new Vision Pro.

For headset buyers, Wccftech also recommends purchasing the AppleCare+ extended warranty, which costs $499 and is valid for two years, during which Apple undertakes to provide various types of repairs for free or at a deep discount.

Let us remind you that pre-orders for Apple Vision Pro in the US started on January 19, 2024. The new product is expected to appear in retail on February 2.

What apps will come pre-installed on Apple Vision Pro?

Apple Vision Pro, according to MacRumors, will be sold with 25 pre-installed applications, which can be divided into two categories - optimized and non-optimized.
