We Can Easily Scratch The Front Panel Of The Apple Vision Pro! [VIDEO]

TECH NEWS – The front of the AR headset isn’t clear glass, so the plastic is more prone to “stretching” with scratches…


It makes you wonder why we have to report something like this, because we’re talking about a device that Apple is charging at least $3,500 for. For that price, you would think that the Cupertino company would work with premium materials (glass, aluminum), but you would be wrong. In the video embedded below from YouTube channel JerryRigEverything, Zach got his hands on an Apple device and came up with some shocking results…

The Mohs scale of hardness needs some explanation here. On a scale of 1 to 10, a 10 is represented by a diamond (scratches glass), but we should also note a 3 (calcite, not scratchable with a fingernail, scratchable with a needle) and a 4 (fluorite, hard to scratch with a needle, easy to scratch with a knife). In the test, the front of the Apple Vision Pro scored a 3 on the hardness scale, but the deeper grooves scored a 4. Usually plastic is scratched at this level, so we can assume that Apple protects many cameras with some kind of plastic material, not glass!

On the Apple Vision Pro product page, the company claims that the front of the device is protected by laminated glass, so again, something is not clear. Another shocking result is that the scratch test revealed that the outer lenses are made of plastic, so Zach recommends that the wearer of the device not wipe them with tissue paper, as this will cause irreparable damage in a short time. It’s worth investing in a good quality microfiber cloth, at least as a backup, as it comes standard with the headset. (We’re surprised Apple doesn’t charge extra for it!)

The headset also underwent a bending test to see if there were any weaknesses in the manufacturing process, but fortunately the headset is so chunky that nothing bent or warped, so there’s nothing to worry about. However, we should be careful when cleaning the headset, and not just because of how much you have to pay for it.
