Apple's pitch for the Vision Pro couldn't be more different than the Meta Quest
It's easy to groan when Apple describes the Vision Pro as a "spatial computer." Isn't it just a high-end mixed reality headset? To a degree, yes. You can play games, create content and be productive on a much cheaper device like the $299 Meta Quest 2. And if you're a professional who needs to get serious work done, wearables like the Quest Pro and Microsoft's HoloLens 2 can already handle some of those duties. There's not much point to buying Apple's offering if you just want a refinement of the status quo.

However, it would be wrong to say that the Vision Pro is just a faster, prettier version of what you've seen before. In many ways, Apple's headset concept is the polar opposite of Meta's — it's building a general computing platform that encompasses many experiences, where Meta mostly sees its hardware as a vehicle for the metaverse. And Microsoft's HoloLens is courting a completely different audience with different needs. So, Apple already stands out from the herd simply by embracing a different mixed reality philosophy.
