Can You See Through The Apple Vision Pro?

Apple’s Vision Pro is the talk of the town right now. It’s one of the hottest gadgets with a hefty price tag of around $3500. While it does have a steep price tag, the tech, and trickery that it has under the headset’s shell is something to admire. While a handful of YouTubers and people have their hands on the brand-new Apple Vision Pro, the general public as well as the new owners of the Vision Pro have a few questions.

One of the most important questions about the Apple Vision Pro is whether you can see through the headset when you wear it. Do read on to know the answer to that question.

Can You See Through The Apple Vision Pro Headset?

Apple has stated that the Vision Pro is made up of a laminated glass display at the front of the headset. Towards the inside of the Vision Pro, you do get two cushioned ZEISS optic lenses for you to view content. Do remember that the front of the headset has several cameras that let you see through the real world when using the headset.

So can you see through the Vision Pro when it is powered off?

The answer is no, you can not see it. Why? Well, that is simply because the cameras that give you image input are off hence no video feed. But, when you switch to the Vision Pro and use it, you will be able to see through the headset.

One cool feature about the headset and the ability to see through your surroundings is that the Vision Pro will automatically let you see the person in front of you when they approach you. At the same time, the outer laminated glass display will also reveal your eyes to the person looking straight at you.
