Vision Pro glasses model dominate the Apple developer event

# **Vision Pro glasses model overwhelms the Apple programmer event ** **WWDC is where Apple announced new software, supporting programmers. However, the new Vision Pro glasses are at the heart of this year’s event.** Beginning in 1987, the annual WWDC is an event Apple created to showcase new, developer-enabled software solutions. The 2023 program is one of the largest, with a series of hardware products, affecting the development of Apple. Instead of the September event, this year’s WWDC plays an important role, where a completely new business segment is introduced. Since 2017 with the iPhone X model, Apple has used the phrase “One more thing” to introduce the product. The device this time is Vision Pro, Apple’s first smart glasses. The company’s smart glasses model has great potential, opening up other applications in the future. ## “Vision” for the future of Apple In terms of design, Vision Pro looks cleaner than the virtual reality (VR) products currently on the market. Apple says it studies the head shapes of thousands of people to find the most comfortable, most suitable wear structure. The screen inside is super sharp, with each eye having more pixels than a 4K TV. Zeiss is in charge of manufacturing both sides of the lens for the device. Inside, Apple uses a special mechanism to automatically adjust the position to suit the human eye. Outside, the product has a series of proximity sensors, cameras, and microphones to record signals. The company also uses dual chips, M2 and R1 to process input data and output content. Apple says that Vision Pro glasses have more than 5,000 new designs applied. This is a device with high technical requirements and long development time. According to Apple’s demonstrations, the smart glasses model opens up many new interactive solutions and experiences. Apple also solves many of the problems that exist with AR/VR headsets, which are limited means of control. Users can interact with the device by eye, voice, hand gestures or familiar input methods including mouse and keyboard. Vision Pro runs well with direct power or via removable battery, with 2 hours of use. VisionOS is the name of the operating system on smart glasses, with a set of programming tools built around 3D interactivity. Currently, most of the default iPhone apps have a glass version. Some rendering or communication apps will also be supported when the product goes on sale. Apple also has a solution to real-life interaction problems when wearing glasses or reconstructing the user’s face during online calls. Disney CEO Bob Iger appeared at the launch, showing a short film, describing how you can be entertained with Apple glasses. The product has a starting price of $ 3,500, with an official release date in early 2024. ## Switching completely to the M chip Apple Silicon chip for computers is one of Apple’s biggest successes in recent years. The company representative said that this is the best-selling computer line in the world. Apple continues to exploit the new processor range with the 15-inch MacBook Air model. The product fills its laptop chain, from the 13-inch Air M1 to the 16-inch Pro. Apple claims this is the world’s thinnest 15-inch machine, with a thickness of 1.2 cm and weighing less than 1.5 kg. The product has an 18-hour battery, runs the base M2 chip, and is actually 15.3 inches with a notch that houses the 1080 pixel camera. The starting price of the device is 33 million VND. The device options are expanded to 24 GB RAM and 2 TB SSD. Besides, Mac Studio is also updated with new configuration with completely new M2 Max and M2 Ultra chips. This is an important upgrade step to help the product achieve better performance for work tasks. Apple says the performance of the M2 Max is six times more powerful than the last Intel iMac. The artificial intelligence core is also 40% faster. This desktop can reach up to 24 CPU cores and 76 GPU cores. Apple sells the highest option with 192 GB of RAM and 8 TB of SSD. In addition, other factors of the device remain unchanged. The starting price of the product is 55 million VND. The Mac Pro model is also officially back, although there were not many previous rumors. This is the last Apple computer to be switched to use the M chip. Thus, the Mac device range is no longer running on Intel processors. The product has the same appearance. Inside, the processor is replaced by an M2 Ultra chip. Apple integrated directly into the machine 7 Afterburner cards, which is an optional add-on, supporting rendering (rendering) video in the old life. On the body, the company leaves a series of slots waiting for users to buy additional accessories to serve the job. Apple’s most expensive professional computer model starts at VND 180 million. ## Major software series Apple also revamped the software series, starting with iOS 17. In the new version, the call waiting page will be able to be customized as deeply as the lock screen of iOS 16. Voicemail support transcription when the user is not hands-free. iMessage has more features in the emoji section, replying to messages. In fact, these features have appeared on rival apps for a long time. One of the coolest iOS 17 upgrades is Name Drop, a simple way to share contact information. The mechanism of this tool is like the data tags, read by NFC. However, instead of the close-range protocol, users just need to put the iPhones next to each other for information to be transferred automatically. The autocorrect part of iOS has an important upgrade, when using a Transformer model similar to ChatGPT or Google Bard to determine context. The tool also directly suggests the next word in the input box, making it faster. During the event, Apple demonstrated the tool in English. It is not clear which languages ​​will be supported. Next, Apple created more solutions to use iPhone when charging. Specifically, the product can become a smart screen when rotated horizontally, while charging. Apple demonstrated the feature on a MagSafe swivel stand. The tool can display images, control smart home… iPad OS 17 has a refreshed Widget, easy to interact directly with and changes according to function. The same external display on the iPhone will also appear on the Apple tablet. Also, an important update is in the Notes app, as it works better with PDFs and supports quick syncing between multiple devices. This year’s Mac OS will be called Sonoma, updated with a live wallpaper interface and a widget system similar to iPad and iPhone. On the other hand, Apple also upgraded the gaming capabilities of the device. Macs running the M chip now have very high performance when scoring, working with graphics. However, it is difficult for users to take advantage of the device to play games because of the limited number of games. On Mac OS Sonoma, Apple will add Gaming Mode, to optimize the hardware for the game. In addition, the company also creates tools to help programmers convert games from other programming languages ​​and libraries to Metal. Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear Solid series, is present in the introductory video to share the potential of the graphics library and performance on MacOS. At the same time, *Death Stranding* will be the next AAA game available on Apple computers. Audio products, smart homes also have small updates, allowing AirPods to adjust noise cancellation mode to adapt to the environment, connect HomePod speakers at hotels or share music via CarPlay. FaceTime will also be available on Apple TV with the ability to combine with iPhone as a Webcam. WatchOS has officially reached its 10th version. In this software, Apple watches can use widgets more quickly through the Digital Crown. Two new watch faces will also appear in the update. At the same time, Apple Watch Ultra has upgraded keyboard and emergency mode (SOS). When in a poor signal environment, the watch will show the user the way to the location of the transmitting station with the best transmission.
