Booking your free demo experience
As Apple unveils its latest innovation, the Vision Pro headset, interest is surging. While the company hasn’t disclosed an end date for these trials, one thing is clear: you need to plan ahead. To secure your slot, you must book at least a week in advance through the official Vision Pro page, selecting from available stores for a 30-minute walk-through. As of now, bookings are open until Feb. 18, but given the demand, this window may not remain open for long.

The demo day
Imagine stepping into the bustling Fifth Avenue Apple Store in Manhattan, where a dedicated area adorned with 16 plush couches awaits in the basement. Here, amid the gentle hum of excited whispers, Apple’s Geniuses glide between stations, presenting the headsets on bamboo platters as if they were rare delicacies. This was the setting where I, like the very first Vision Pro customer, got to indulge in the futuristic experience.
Promptness is key – arrive on time and check in with the staff (look for the ones with tablets). Sanitation is paramount, and the staff’s meticulousness extends to the handling of the device, reassuring users of both hygiene and the headset’s durability.

The curated journey follows a crafted script
Apple’s demo is more than just a trial; it’s an orchestrated journey into their vision of the future. It starts with a facial scan to ensure a perfect fit – a process that can be challenging for those with facial hair. Then, you’re guided through the nuances of wearing the device and navigating its interface, focusing on three main gestures – pinch, wave and drag – to interact with the virtual environment.

Exploring the ‘Spatial’ Realm
The heart of the demo is the immersive spatial video and 3D content, spotlighting the superior quality of media captured with the Vision Pro compared to the iPhone 15 Pro. You’ll even get a glimpse of the 3D version of “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” in a simulated cinema environment. The experience allows for some browsing on Safari and interaction with a couple of apps, presenting a taste of the spatial computing environment and the headset’s comfort and ergonomics.
