Mark Zuckerberg Takes a Dig at Apple in Review of Vision Pro

Mark Zuckerberg has sparked further rivalry between Meta and Apple with his review of the new Vision Pro headset.

While he acknowledged that Apple is a good company, he believes that Meta will improve faster and ultimately win the competition for market share due to its open model.


Zuckerberg's Review of Vision Pro

Mark Zuckerberg's review of the Apple Vision Pro headset has only deepened the rivalry between Meta and Apple. In his review, Zuckerberg focused on the eyewatering price difference between the Vision Pro and Meta's VR headset, the Quest. He had few positive things to say about the Vision Pro, describing some features as 'nice'. However, he made it clear that he takes Apple seriously as a company and acknowledges their good work.

Despite riling up hardcore Apple fans, Zuckerberg stands by his review and believes he simply laid out the facts as he sees them. He also believes that both Apple and Meta will continue to improve, but he is confident that Meta will improve faster. He suggests that people who get upset when Apple is questioned in a new space are part of an Apple fanboy culture that he finds amusing.

The Difference Between Vision Pro and Meta Quest 3

The main difference between the Apple Vision Pro and Meta Quest 3 is the price. The Meta Quest 3 starts at around £479.99 / $499, while the Vision Pro comes with a hefty price tag of £2,749 / $3,499. In terms of comfortability, Zuckerberg prefers his own headset, as expected.

In terms of content, the Vision Pro has over 600 new apps specifically made for it, although popular apps like Netflix are not yet accessible. On the other hand, the Meta Quest 3 boasts over 1,000 games and apps in the Meta Quest Store, including Netflix. However, some users have reported lower resolution when streaming on the Meta Quest 3.

Zuckerberg concluded his review by stating his belief that the Meta Quest 3 will win the competition for market share over the Vision Pro. He cited the Quest's immersive content library, ability to watch YouTube and play Xbox, and its open model as factors that give it an advantage. He is committed to Meta's success and plans to win the competition.

Virtual Reality vs Augmented Reality

Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are two different technologies. VR involves using a headset to simulate a virtual world, while AR adds computer-generated elements to the real world. The Apple Vision Pro falls under the VR category, while products like Microsoft's HoloLens and Google Glass are examples of AR headsets. Both technologies have their own applications and uses.

It's important to note that the rivalry between Meta and Apple extends beyond VR and AR, as both companies are competing in various areas of technology and innovation. The battle for market share and dominance continues as each company strives to improve and offer the best products and experiences to users.
