When planning on spending thousands of dollars on a product, you should probably do your due diligence in advance.
One person to review the new and highly sought after device is Casey Neistat, who boasts over 12 million YouTube subscribers.
In the 10-minute long clip, Neistat takes to the streets of New York City while wearing his brand spanking new Vision Pros.
Part of the video is from the perspective of what he can see, while other bits shows how he looks to everyone else - mostly a prime target for mugging.
From skating down the street on an electric skateboard and catching the subway while wearing them, to casually eating a donut in Krispy Kreme, he went about his usual business.
Neistat kept a charging pack with him for his adventure and was able to wear the device for the majority of the day. The headset has a general battery life of 2.5 hours.
In fact, Neistat wore the Vision Pros for so long that his brain 'forgot it was looking through cameras and screens'.
"It took what it saw as reality," he said.
"What occurred to me as I was sitting in Times Square on a bench, strangers all around me [and] the real world moving all around me, but I had a big screen up watching a MrBeast video.
"In that moment I was like, 'Holy s**t. This is it. This is the future of computing that everyone's been promising for the last 15 years.'"
Evidently Neistat has high hopes for the future of augmented and virtual reality headsets like Vision Pros, so much so he thinks there's still room for improvements.
Describing the Vision Pros as 'heavy, $4,000 ski goggles', he said while holding up a headset: "I don't know if you should buy one of these for $4,000 because I can promise you this, this will be the worst Vision Pro Apple ever ships.
"It is going to get so much better."
Basically, don't spend your money just yet. Wait for newer and improved versions of the Vision Pro.
People have since thanked Neistat for his honest review.
"The best review I've seen so far on this matter," wrote one person, as someone else said: "Thanks for sharing your experience with us! Really appreciated!"
Echoing similar sentiments to Neistat's final thoughts on the product, a different person said: "I saw the same thing when these were first announced. These are going to get soo much better!!!"
