Last year Apple launched the Vision Pro “spatial computer”, but it only launched for US customers. At WWDC overnight, Apple finally confirmed that the headset computer would be available in Australia, with pre-orders starting from 28 June at 10pm AEST.

Actual availability will be from 12 July in Australia, with the RRP starting at $5,999 for the 256GB version.

Customers will be able to purchase the Apple Vision Pro by visiting the Apple Store online, Apple Store app, or an Apple Store location. Customers will also be able to book a 30-minute demo of Vision Pro online.

visionOS 2 coming in Spring

Of course, WWDC isn’t typically a hardware event, it’s all about software. And naturally the company updated its visionOS platform.

The big developments to the operating system include the ability to see your regular photos with spatial depth, created by machine learning; new hand gestures for seeing key information like battery life and volume control; and new APIs and frameworks for developers to create new spatial experiences.

Users will also get multi-view sports experiences on the Apple TV app, an improved mindfulness app and systemwide Live Captions, to improve communication while wearing the headset.

Full pricing and availability

Pre-orders start 28 June with availability on 12 July 2024.

There are three capacities of the Apple Vision Pro available:

  • 256GB – $5,999

For anyone who needs glasses, Apple also has ZEISS optical inserts that can replace your glasses in the headset:
