iFixit's teardown of the Vision Pro reveals several internal components, including an array of cameras, sensors, fans, lens motors, and more. Unsurprisingly, it seems that opening and repairing the headset would be difficult.
“The EyeSight system seems like an Achilles' heel fix, with too many points of failure for a feature that's a bit scary,” iFixit said in an email. “But we'll give Apple credit where it's due: the speakers and easily replaceable battery are big wins in repairability.”
The Vision Pro is powered by an M2 chip with an 8-core CPU, a 10-core GPU, a 16-core neural engine, and 16GB of unified memory. Other specs include up to 1TB of storage space, and an all-new R1 chip that “processes inputs from 12 cameras, five sensors and six microphones to ensure content appears to appear right in front of the user's eyes.”

Howarth said Apple designed the Vision Pro with “a lot of flexible materials and soft textures” like the Solo Knit Band so that people not only feel physically comfortable wearing it, but also enjoy wearing it around others as well.
The Vision Pro launched Friday in the United States, and Apple said the headset will be available in additional countries later this year.
