Quick Answer: Apple Vision Pro is a standalone device that does not require an iPhone to operate. However, it can interface with other Apple devices like iPhone. 

Apple revealed the Vision Pro at the World Wide Developers Conference 2023 alongside several new Apple products. 

The Apple Vision Pro is a VR (Virtual Reality) headset, one of the most anticipated products at the launch event. And suffice it to say that the AR/VR headset was the event’s star, which will be available in early 2024 at a whopping price of $3,499. 

However, the arrival of this new Apple headset has created a slight commotion among the users. They are confused about how the Vision Pro AR/VR headset works and whether it requires an iPhone to operate.

What is VisionOS for the Apple Vision Pro? How does it work? 

Short Answer: VisionOS is the operating system for the Apple Vision Pro VR headset. 

The Vision Pro is a remarkable addition to Apple’s lineup, boasting not only cutting-edge hardware but also a dedicated operating system called VisionOS.

Designed to power the device, VisionOS offers users a three-dimensional immersive interface, a feature common to other VR headsets.

Moreover, VisionOS enables users to launch multiple windows and run various applications concurrently. However, what truly sets the Vision Pro apart from its competitors is its revolutionary and distinctive features, many of which are yet to be revealed.

The Vision Pro doesn’t require a controller, which makes the experience more immersive. Users can rely on simple gestures in the air, which the Vision Pro captures seamlessly.

There are 12 cameras to capture the user’s movements and the surrounding environment. Additionally, the Eyesight feature allows the user’s eyes to be visible through the glass, creating a sense of connection to the real world.

It is important to note that Apple designed the Vision Pro to be a self-sufficient device. Users can enjoy its full functionality without the need for an additional Apple device, such as an iPhone, to operate it.
