The Apple Vision Pro has now been around for a few months after it first went up for sale on the Apple website and Apple Stores across the United States in February. There's no sign of when the headset will ship globally yet, but Apple has already confirmed that it will do just that before the end of the year. We also don't know which countries the headset will arrive in, either. Now, a new report has suggested that those waiting for a new, second-gen model should probably just pull the trigger on the current model.

It already made a ton of sense that Apple would plan to launch an upgraded model with tweaks and improvements over the previous headset. But a new report suggests that it won't be ready to launch the headset any time soon. Writing in the weekly Power On newsletter, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman reports that the Apple Vision Pro roadmap does not currently have a second-gen model ready to go and it isn't on the roadmap until the end of 2026 at the earliest. That could mean it will be 2027 before the headset will go on sale.

Long before any of that will happen, however, Apple will give current Apple Vision Pro owners something new to look forward to. The visionOS software that powers the Apple Vision Pro is set to be updated to visionOS 2 this year, and it's expected that Apple will announce it at the WWDC event on June 10. However, Gurman says that the update isn't expected to be a big one, saying that it won't be a game changer. The report goes on to say that the next big thing for Apple is the expansion of the rollout to a new country, with China thought to be on the list for a release very soon. Time will tell which other countries the Apple Vision Pro will launch in, but Apple's website simply says that a global launch will take place in 2024.

The Apple Vision PRo is currently offered in the United States alone with prices starting at $3,499. That price gets buyers the 256GB model, while 512GB and 1TB options are available for people who need additional space for apps and media. Apple also offers additional accessories such as a $200 battery and a futuristic travel case that can be had for the same price. It's likely the same accessories will become available internationally alongside the Apple Vision Pro, too.
