The True Price of Apple's $3,500 Vision Pro Is Closer to $4,600
Briefly

When Apple unveiled the Vision Pro virtual reality goggles last year at a technology conference, many in the audience gasped at the price: $3,500. That's more than quadruple the cost of a new iPhone and 14 times the cost of a competing headset from Meta. The headset, which Apple has marketed as a computer, movie player and gaming machine, will arrive in stores on Friday. Ahead of its release, the discussion has focused on its price: Many have wondered why people would pay so much to do what they could already do with their computers, TVs and game consoles.
The true cost of owning the Vision Pro is probably even higher. Try $4,600. That's because the price shoots up with the add-ons and accessories that many people would want to buy...
While I have your attention with these breathtaking numbers, we can all learn a valuable lesson from the Vision Pro about phantom costs, the add-ons that significantly inflate the amount we spend. For electronics, including smartphones, computers and virtual reality headsets, they can include cases and charging gadgets.
A clear grasp of the true cost of tech ownership is important to avoid overspending.
