The highly anticipated Apple Vision Pro headset officially launched on February 2nd, 2023. For those eager to try out Apple’s first foray into spatial computing and mixed reality, Apple is offering free in-store demos. Here’s how you can book a demo of Apple Vision Pro.

How to Book an In-Store Demo

To sign up for a demo, you have two options:

In-person sign up

  1. Go to your local Apple Store that has a Vision Pro display
  2. Find an Apple employee and let them know you want to demo the headset
  3. Provide your name and contact information
  4. Choose an available demo time slot

Online Reservation

Starting February 5th, you can also reserve a slot online:

  1. Go to Apple’s Vision Pro page or the Apple Store app
  2. Tap the “Book a Demo” button and sign in with your Apple ID (two-factor authentication required)
  3. Select your preferred Apple Store location and choose an open time slot between February 5-8

Demos are first-come, first-served, so arrive early, especially on launch weekend when crowds are expected. Sessions typically last 30 minutes.

What to Expect During the Demo

Once it’s your turn, here’s what you can expect:

  • An Apple employee will walk you through Vision Pro and its features, following a script on an iPad mini
  • You’ll get sized and fitted with a demo unit if needed
  • The setup process will calibrate the lenses to your eyes and teach you basic gestures
  • You’ll go through an eye tracking calibration, similar to setting up Face ID
  • After a brief introduction, you’ll get to put on the Vision Pro and explore both real and virtual content
  • You can experience spatial apps, environments, EyeSight features, and more
  • An Apple employee will guide you through the demo and answer any questions

The session provides hands-on time to see the Vision Pro’s capabilities firsthand before you purchase. You can also order a unit after your demo if interested.
