Apple launches Vision Pro without Wi-Fi 6E support


Apple received FCC approval for the Vision Pro today in the US, and the filing confirms that the headset does not support Wi-Fi 6E , according to macrumors .


Wi-Fi 6E extends the capabilities of the regular Wi-Fi 6 standard to the 6GHz band, enabling faster wireless speeds and reduced signal interference with a compatible device and router. Apple devices that support Wi-Fi 6E include the latest iPad Pro models , iPhone 15 Pro , and most Mac models released in 2023.


An FCC filing shows that the Vision Pro headset does not have any certified operating frequencies in the 6GHz range, confirming that the headset lacks Wi-Fi 6E support . Instead, an Apple document in the app confirms that the Vision Pro supports regular Wi-Fi 6 , which operates on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands .


Apple has not yet shared the full technical specifications of the Vision Pro , so only limited details are available. So far, Apple has said that the headset is equipped with the M2 chip, an all-new R1 chip that handles camera and microphone input, 256GB of basic storage, and is equipped with RAM. Random access (RAM) capacity of 16 GB .


In the United States, pre-orders for the Vision Pro begin on Friday, January 19, with a starting price of $3,499. The headset will be launched on Friday, February 2, and Apple previously said  that availability will expand to more countries later this year .
