Apple Vision Pro preorders are now live and there's a neat tool on Apple's website to make sure you get the right sizing when buying the $3,499 headset.
When you head to Apple.com to start your preorder, you are asked to scan your face to get the right size Light Seal and head bands for the mixed reality headset.
To do this, scan the QR code on the screen with an iPad or iPhone (or go directly to the preorder page via the Apple Store app). Once there, you'll move your head around like when setting up FaceID to take a full scan of your head.
The scanning process is very straightforward, and after you've completed the scans, you'll be taken to the product selection page where you can pick the size of storage on the Vision Pro as well as purchase prescription Zeiss lenses.
Apple Vision Pro is currently only available in the U.S., but we hope to see it worldwide before 2024 comes to a close.
If you want to purchase a Vision Pro but don't have access to an iPhone or iPad with FaceID, you can go to your local Apple Store for the same experience. You won't be able to buy online without completing the sizing scans.
Unfortunately, preorders are already live, so if you need to go to the Apple Store in person to get your scans done, you may miss out on a Vision Pro in the first preorder wave. You can use any iPhone or iPad with FaceID, so why not ask a friend or family member to help with the process?
Vision Pro is available for preorder right now and will start shipping on February 2, stay tuned to iMore for more Vision Pro coverage in the coming weeks.
