Apple's Vision Pro Mixed Reality Headset to Launch in China Soon

Apple, the American tech giant, is set to launch its much-anticipated Vision Pro mixed reality headset in China soon. The headset, unveiled at last year’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), went on sale in the United States last month. The company plans to make it available in many countries.

Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, confirmed the China launch during the China Development Forum. He also emphasized the company’s continued investment in research and development in China. However, iPhone sales in China have declined by 24 percent year-over-year in the first six weeks of this year. Apple faces stiff competition from Chinese companies like Huawei, indicating a potential demand slowdown.
