Prospective buyers purchasing the Vision Pro can book a 30-minute demo session at their local Apple store, as per Apple. This involves scanning the face using Face ID, trying out different loops and light seals to ensure it sits on the face perfectly without any discomfort, and adjusting to lens inserts.

They also get a brief demonstration of visionOS, the operating system powering the headset and its capabilities. The demo also enables the buyer to get used to the basic functions of the Vision Pro and the eye movements, gestures and voice commands required to navigate through the UI, Apple claims.
