Musk’s idea is shared by many users and technology enthusiasts, namely that the first generation iPhone also had it deficiencies that have been corrected with subsequent iterations, to show the path of smartphones that years later would become an essential part of our lives.

The Vision Pro will have to prove it: while their functionality is impressive, the reality is that their experience needs to be refined, as they are uncomfortable, delicate and in many ways, unnecessary.

Sam Altman’s words come just days after announcing that ChatGPT is available in the Apple Vision Pro app store the same day as its launch, in clear support of the apple producing company.
