Apple has entered the final stage of preparations for the launch of its new Apple Vision Pro headset. The company aims to launch the headset in mid – January. The US company has commenced training its retail store employees to promote the headset effectively, aiming to persuade consumers to purchase it once it hits the store shelves.
According to Bloomberg, the training will not solely focus on providing technical information about the headset but will also encompass operating it and maximizing all its features. This approach aims to enable employees to convey the full experience to both their colleagues and customers.
During the WWDC 2023 for developers, the US company announced that the headset would hit the market at the beginning of the next year, despite internal staff qualification targeted for readiness by mid-January.
The Apple Vision Pro is considered one of Apple’s most intricate devices due to the need for configuring numerous features and settings within the headset. This customization is essential to align with each user’s specific characteristics, requiring adjustments to the belt’s tightness based on the user’s head size. Additionally, for individuals with vision deficiencies, the inclusion of eyesight lenses is necessary.
Bloomberg highlighted the critical importance of meticulously executing every aspect of the user experience with Apple glasses at their branches, ensuring that no steps undermine the experience entirely.
Although the Vision Pro headset will solely be purchasable via the company’s website, users will need to schedule an appointment for a trial at one of Apple’s branches. These branches will soon receive all the necessary equipment for setting up and packaging the new device, preparing for the arrival of users who have booked the headset for purchase or trial.
Back in 2014, when the Apple Watch was first introduced, the public had to schedule appointments in advance to try out the first generation of Apple watches. However, over time, the experience became more seamless and natural, similar to the process with iPhones.
