Kuo: Apple Vision Pro is unlikely to receive major updates until 2027

by Joe Rossignol

It could take several years for the Vision Pro headset to receive a major hardware upgrade, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

“Currently, it is estimated that new models with significant changes to the Vision Pro specification may not go into mass production until 2027,” Kuo said today.

Based on his latest supply chain checks, Kuo believes Apple has not yet started work on a second-generation Vision Pro or a lower-cost, downsized version of the headset. However, research and development can continue.

Kuo expects the modified Vision Pro to go into mass production in late 2025 or early 2026, but he said Apple is focused on reducing costs and production, which leads him to believe that “the user experience will be no different from the current model.” It's possible that these changes won't even be announced to the public, other than a potential price cut.

Kuo expects Apple to release the Vision Pro in additional countries before WWDC in June. The headset was released in the US earlier this month.
