Apple to Expand Vision Pro to Additional Countries After WWDC

Sales of the Apple Vision Pro will soon begin in countries outside of the United States, reports Bloomberg. Hundreds of employees from international retail stores have been flying into Cupertino for multi-day Vision Pro training sessions.

Apple held similar training sessions ahead of when the Vision Pro launched in the United States, with employees learning how to provide customer demonstrations and answer customer questions. An exact launch date for the Vision Pro hasn't yet been announced, but it is expected to expand to additional countries after WWDC. This year's Worldwide Developers Conference is set to take place from June 10 to June 14.

Employees from stores in Australia, China, Germany, France, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore are attending the training sessions, so these are likely to be the first countries to get the Vision Pro after the United States. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously said the Vision Pro would launch in more countries prior to WWDC, but that may now be inaccurate with Bloomberg's information suggesting a June debut.

U.S. interest in the Vision Pro has died down in the months following the launch of the device, and Apple has allegedly cut Vision Pro shipments as a result. International sales could bring a renewed wave of excitement over the device, but at $3,500 USD, the price is still prohibitive. Pricing in non-U.S. countries has not yet been announced.

If people in the most developed nation on the planet (i.e. with the most disposable income) don't want this thing, what makes you think people in other, less developed countries will?
You think the USA is the "most developed nation on the planet" and Australia, China, Germany, France, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore are "less developed countries"?

And you think people in the USA have "the most disposable income" compared to other countries?

You haven't traveled much, have you...?

Sorry, but Australia, China, Germany, France, Japan, South Korea and Singapore (mentioned in the story) are hardly "less developed" countries where people lack disposable income. They all have plenty of tech-savvy consumers who have all kinds of disposable income. The AVP is exactly the kind of early-adopter device that plenty of people in some of the wealthiest markets in the world would snap up.

New products are usually something that fixes a problem, or fills a need.

This still feels like a product in search of a problem, and something that is hard to justify needing it, where's the killer app?

Well, you're not wrong.

Apple Vision Pro hasn't even finished its worldwide rollout and Apple already ships a chip that's twice as efficient.

While the AVP is still sold as a company flagship, with a flagship price.

Outdated before it's even out in most countries. With real benefits that could be had with the new chip. Either double battery life or lighter battery.

Honestly, this just shows poor planning by Apple and a rush to get it out the door, almost to prove a point.

A new category of device like this needs to have the latest silicon for like a year. This device should have come out with the M4 and probably be the first at that.
See this is what I knew would happen with naming conventions. People like you would deem the processor old purely based on the name.

The iPad shouldn't even be using "M" as it's processor names. The M4 in the IPad is not the same M4 that'll end up in the MacBook Airs next.

The M2 Ultra is still the most powerful Apple processor by far and they're currently themselves putting them in data centres and yet you're on here going "but I want an M4 in everything".

And how many people kept them after the 14 day return period
There was a 1% return rate, similar to iPhone.

This and my previous post were widely reported.

As I said previously, this will bother a lot of people here. With many strongly coming up with reasons why it couldn’t possibly be true, even though they have no data.
