If you’re an Apple fan and your New Year’s resolution is to save money this January, we have bad news: a new rumor says that Apple’s Vision Pro headphones will go on sale in just a few weeks. However, and perhaps fortunately for its finances, there are some serious questions floating around the rumor.
The launch date discussed in January comes from Wall Street Insights, a news outlet for Chinese investors (via MacRumors). According to a machine-translated version of the report, “Apple Vision Pro is expected to launch in the United States on January 27, 2024.”
The report adds that “supply chain information shows that Sony is currently the first supplier of silicon-based OLEDs for the first-generation Vision Pro, and the second supplier is from a Chinese company, which will be the key to determine if Vision Pro can be expanded. its production capacity.
With the supposed release date just 25 days away, it may not be long before we see Apple’s biggest new product in years. However, despite the report’s apparent certainty, there are reasons to be skeptical about its accuracy.
For one thing, January 27 is a Saturday, an unlikely day for an Apple product launch. It could be that Wall Street Insights is referring to January 27 in China, which, thanks to time differences, coincides with Friday, January 26 in the United States. That’s a much more likely release date since it doesn’t coincide with the weekend, when many of the media outlets that would cover Vision Pro will be providing reduced news coverage. However, the report specifically mentions the US date, meaning questions remain.
Beyond the specific date, several reputable Apple analysts have proposed an early release date of 2024. Ming-Chi Kuo, for example, has suggested a late January or early February timeframe, while Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman has focused on February as the launch month.
Either way, it’s clear that Vision Pro is almost here. Apple has reportedly been training retail staff on how to use the device, implying the company is almost ready to pull the trigger.
We’ll see how accurate the Wall Street Insights report is in a few weeks. Regardless of whether or not it has the correct date, we are undoubtedly about to see the most anticipated new Apple product in recent times.
