Apple’s Vision Pro virtual and augmented reality headsets sold out quickly after online pre-sales began Friday morning, but stable delivery dates could indicate a limited amount of demand for the $3,500 device.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a TF International Securities analyst who keeps close tabs on Apple, estimated the company sold between 160,000 and 180,000 headsets over the weekend. (The headset is set for delivery to early-bird buyers and due on store shelves Feb. 2.)
Compared to opening weekends for new models of Apple’s iPhones — which also typically sell out right away — shipping times for back-ordered Vision Pros remained steady Monday at between five and seven weeks, rather than continuing to extend beyond that period, Kuo noted.
