Apple Vision Pro headset: is it (too) heavy?

Apple is apparently concerned about the excessive weight of its new Apple Vision Pro headset, and is already thinking about solutions to lighten its next iterations.

According to the latest indiscretions collected by Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, Apple is concerned about the weight - around 500 grams - of its new Vision Pro virtual reality headset which will be released early next year. After several batteries of tests, some users find it too heavy, even over short periods.

Apple Vision Pro, the weight of the headset in focus

The design of the device is locked and there is no longer any question of modifying it, Apple is therefore considering solutions to make wearing it more pleasant, for example a strap above the head. The company is already taking this “defect” into account for future versions of its helmet, which will therefore be designed to limit their weight as much as possible.
