If you plan on preordering Apple’s Vision Pro, better own an iPhone
Why is everyone so surprised by this?
Okay, folks, it looks like Apple’s getting all “Mission Impossible” on us with the new Vision Pro headset.
Now, Yahoo! Finance is also spilling the beans about the necessity of Face ID. It seems like Apple’s going all in on the “no face, no service” policy.
And if you plan on getting your hands on one on day one, pre-orders kick off January 19th, so better make sure your iPhone or iPad Pro is ready for its close-up.
Interestingly, Apple’s official website is playing it cool not to mention the Face ID hoopla for pre-orders. But they do talk about this “Optic ID” thing – sounds like something out of a sci-fi flick, right?
So, in a nutshell, if you want to get your hands on the Vision Pro, you better make sure your device knows your face. And for those with non-Face ID devices, well, there’s always the next Apple release. Hang in there, folks
