Yes, It is finally out there. We have heard rumors about Apple's Augmented reality headset for over a year. Finally, it is officially announced.

WWDC kicked off yesterday, and this year's keynote had something tech lovers were anticipating — Another "one more thing" moment by Apple. In WWDC 2023, the tech giant finally announced a new product, a VR/AR headset, and it is called Vision Pro — Keep an eye on the Pro naming; it will become important later on.

Apple focused on "Spatial computing" and did not mention the MetaVerse at all. Their goal is not to transfer us into a new digital universe — they are focused on bringing computing into an immersive experience we can move through and interact with.

I loved every moment of the announcement. It was precisely what you would expect from Apple. Here are my favorite takes from the Vision Pro announcement and why I'm excited about it.

No mention of the MetaVerse

Tim Cook and all his deputies did not mention the MetaVerse in a brilliant move during the announcement.
