Disconnecting the battery cable and strap bracket connectors is fairly simple using a SIM card removal tool. Disassembling the device is standard for Apple products: heating the glue, detaching the case, screws, brackets and connectors everywhere. The glass cover was removed without damage, but a protective film was found on it, which had partially peeled off and melted a little. Replacing a broken front window will cost $799.

The Apple Vision Pro headset uses EyeSight, which creates the impression of the user's eyes. It transmits “a set of videos of your eyes” that are displayed on an OLED panel. The image passes through a special layer and a secondary lens, creating a 3D effect.

However, this system results in blurred and dim images on the Vision Pro's external display, which creates a hassle for the user.

The headset's battery pack weighs 353g and consists of three batteries the same size as an iPhone. The total battery capacity is 35.9 Wh, which is twice the capacity of the iPhone 15 Pro (17.3 Wh). At the same time, the weight of the batteries is only 184 g, which is half the weight of the entire unit.

The Apple Vision Pro headset uses a proprietary battery cable connection. It locks in place magnetically and rotates to lock in place so you don't accidentally unplug the cable when it gets snagged. The connector on the other end of the cable has a new connector, similar to Lightning, but larger in size, requiring the use of original Apple products.

iFixit says Apple's Vision Pro headset is too complex for one video and promises to demonstrate "the depth of this rabbit hole."
