Want to return your Vision Pro headset? Friday’s the deadline

Have you tried out Apple’s new toy, the Vision Pro headset, and decided that’s enough for now? You can still return it and get your $3499 back – but only until stores close on Friday.

Yes, thousands of people were lining up outside Apple Stores on February 2nd to get their Vision Pro, and many more preordered the gadget. But quite a few customers have decided to return their devices while they still can.

Soon, getting your money back after trying out the Vision Pro will be impossible because Apple’s 14-day return period expires on Friday, February 16th, for day one users. Some are rushing not only to return the device but also to loudly explain their decision on social media.

One X user, seemingly a social media influencer, wrote in a post he was returning his device and added a 775-word essay on why he was doing so.

“Even when you get the device to sit comfortably on your head and face, it's still something you have to wear on your head and face. For a technology/productivity device, this is a non-starter for me,” wrote the user.

Another poster on X uploaded a picture of their Vision Pro back in its original box and added: “The era of spatial computing is very much not here yet.”

Even though the Vision Pro is probably the most hyped tech product of the last decade or so, many users are apparently not finding their initial investment worthwhile. Obviously, some of them were only planning a test run anyway.

According to some users, the Vision Pro seems to be – of course – too expensive, but also headache-inducing or face-hurting. Another common critique is that the low number of apps available for the product yields very few use cases. Netflix, for instance, hasn’t released a Vision Pro app.

Quite a few dissatisfied customers, though, say they will be eagerly awaiting the second-generation Vision Pro gadget when Apple hopefully improves the user experience and fixes the glitches.

Besides, Apple’s other devices, such as the iPad and the Apple Watch, were also met similarly when they first hit store shelves. These devices are now popular and ubiquitous.
