Once you know the Apple Vision Pro repair price, you might be put off buying Apple’s upcoming headset. Hold onto your hats, tech enthusiasts, because news just dropped about Apple’s upcoming Vision Pro mixed reality headset, and let’s say repairs might drain your bank account faster than you can say “augmented reality.”
Remember how we were all excited about February 2nd being launch day? And how app developers are already building stuff like crazy for Vision Pro? Well, buckle up because the reality of repairs might put a damper on your enthusiasm.
Apple Vision Pro repair price: How much will it be?
Apple’s official repair page revealed some eye-watering costs, even for those protected by the golden shield of AppleCare+. Cracked cover glass? That’ll be $799, please. And any other mishap? A cool $2,399, just $1,100 shy of buying a brand new one. Ouch.
Even with AppleCare+ cushioning the blow, the damage fees sting. Any repair, cracked glass or otherwise, comes with a $299 price tag on top of the $25 monthly fee. And even if you try going third-party for repairs, good luck getting Apple to touch your Vision Pro again down the line. Plus, with the device being so fresh, finding spare parts through unofficial channels might be a wild goose chase.
Now, there’s a glimmer of hope: Apple’s self-repair program, currently available for phones and computers, might eventually extend to the Vision Pro. But don’t hold your breath waiting – they haven’t even hinted at a timeline.
So, before you get swept up in the Vision Pro hype, remember: a little mishap could mean major wallet pain. The base price remains at $3,499, and prescription lenses add another $149. Just something to consider as you map out your futuristic budget.
