Viral Apple Vision Pro video answers several questions while its teardown raises new concerns

Meanwhile, a teardown video of the device has also surfaced revealing its complex design and resulting repair challenges.

Apple Vision Pro hands-on video

  • In the hands-on video, we see Mr Gupta has opened several app windows which appear to be floating due to video passthrough. Because of this, we can also see people sitting beside him and walking down the aisle.
  • He has cast the MacBook screen as well to this virtual canvas. He claims the mirrored display feels laggy. All those windows look a bit cluttered too as visionOS lacks proper window management options. The good thing however is that this allows him to have an enlarged view of the MacBook screen and in this particular situation, more space on the tray table in front of him. 
  • He is also watching a movie or some video content that is blackened out in the screen recording owing to DRM protection. He calls the experience “exceptional” though.
  • He points out the major benefit is he can watch or do anything virtually without people peeking over his shoulders. He says people largely were nonchalant about a Vision Pro wearer in the real world. As another X user commented on his post, the pandemic must have normalized masks, face shield visors, and in turn this. But, this can’t be true always, everywhere.
  • He reckons this could be a good accessibility device for some users. 
  • However, not everything was good. Even system activities like the over-the-night visionOS 1.0.2 update drained the battery by 50 percent. So, Vision Pro users are likely to have constant charging anxiety.
  • The user also complained about its heft and lack of a Wi-Fi sharing option with his MacBook.

Apple Vision Pro teardown video

Folks at iFixit have opened up the Vision Pro by removing plenty of screws, brackets, connectors, plastic clips, tape and glue. The teardown process was so “effortful” in the words of the video host that they will be posting another video too around this subject. 

User-removable parts: The video starts with the iFixit expert removing the power cord from both the headset and the bundled battery pack, knit band, face cushions, light seals, and the side-flanking stems. The speakers are on these stems. 

Exterior display part: We learn the Vision Pro display consists of a curved sheet of glass, a black layer called a spacer, an unlaminated layer called a lenticular lens array, and finally the screen. At the 2:20 min mark in the video, you can gain a brief explainer of how the lenticular displays work in this headset. Even further unfastening of screws and cables reveal the camera array, logic board, internal fan, 

The eye-facing part: Next, we get to see the host removing the fabric mesh, concave/convex lenses and display. The two micro-OLED screens for each eye are held together by a frame. 

So many components and such a complex design raises concerns about its repairability. However, we suppose that will be talked about in iFixit’s next Vision Pro video.
