Vision Pro Appears in Chinese Regulatory Database Before Expansion to New Countries

The Apple Vision Pro has shown up in China's product regulatory database as Apple prepares to bring the headset to additional countries sometime in the near future. Both the Vision Pro (A2117) and its Battery Pack (A2697) have shown up in the Chinese database, indicating that a launch in China could be coming soon.

Bloomberg said yesterday that Apple is planning to introduce the Vision Pro in a number of additional countries following the Worldwide Developers Conference, but Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed in February that Vision Pro sales would expand to more countries before WWDC rather than after.

MacRumors has previously found evidence in Apple's backend code that Vision Pro would expand to Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and the United Kingdom, and it appears that information was correct as retail employees from these countries have been visiting Apple's Cupertino headquarters for Vision Pro training in recent days.

When the Vision Pro launched in the United States in February, Apple said that it would bring the device to additional countries "later this year," but the company did not provide a list of countries, timing, or pricing.

I would assume most people with the means already imported one long ago.

Apple's top priority has to be a redesign to get that price cut in half, ideally even less. Once something costs north of $1500, $2000... the amount of people in the world with that kind of disposable income to toss away on a gadget drops off a cliff.
apples top priority has to be finishing the god damn product. It’s an overpriced developer tool with absolutely 0 usecase for the mass.

And yes, I own one, imported it to Germany.

Still too niche. Without a reason why I should use it, I won't buy one. What problem does it solve? I've tested it. It's an impressive toy. The second it has killer apps and a much lower price this will shift in the direction Apple wants it to go. Before then, I highly doubt it.

And that’s true of all of Apple’s products. I would imagine very few people are buying a Mac Pro because there’s no reason they SHOULD use it. Still, Apple has sold more AVP’s to this point than they’ll sell Mac Pro’s all year. Different products for different folks!

I predict in a couple years we’ll get AVP reviews similar to the current iPad Pro reviews, great hardware hampered by half-hearted software.
