SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – iFixit, the well-known repair website, has conducted a thorough teardown of Apple’s new Vision Pro mixed reality headset, revealing a trove of internal components and shedding light on its repairability challenges. The disassembly, detailed in both a written and video format, showed an array of cameras, sensors, fans, lens motors, an M2 chip, and other intricate parts that make repairing the headset a difficult task.

According to iFixit, 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. The device has up to 1TB of storage and an R1 chip that processes input from 12 cameras, five sensors, and six microphones, creating a high-tech experience for users.

This information comes just after design details of the Vision Pro were shared by the publication Wallpaper*, which also featured an image of the headset’s internals in an exclusive interview with Apple’s vice presidents of software and hardware design. The design of the Vision Pro was described as having a lot of flexible materials and soft textures to ensure comfort for the user.

The Vision Pro officially launched in the U.S. on Friday, with plans for release in other countries later this year. Apple has also announced that over 600 apps with native support for visionOS will be available on the Vision Pro, enhancing the user experience and adding further value to the new technology.
