Apple’s 2nd generation Vision Pro reported to be already in the works

Apple is yet to ship its first consumer VR headset—Vision Pro, set to go on sale in the US by early 2024. According to a report by MacRumors, Cupertino is already working on its successor, likely to be called the second-generation Vision Pro.

Internally known as Alaksa N109, the second-generation Vision Pro is said to look similar to its predecessor. However, Apple is reported to have made minor design changes, including the displacement of buttons and speakers to enhance user-friendliness.
