Disconnecting the Lightning connectors for the battery cable and strap brackets is fairly easy, requiring only a SIM card removal tool. After that, disassembly is pretty standard for Apple devices: heat with a hot air gun to soften the glue, detach the case, screws everywhere, brackets and connectors. At the same time, it was possible to remove the glued glass panel without damaging it. But there is a protective film on it, which has peeled off a little in the process and may have melted a little. Replacing the broken front glass will cost $799.

The EyeSight system, which maps the user's eyes, has a short description on the iFixit blog. It transmits not just one video stream, but “a set of videos of your eyes.” It all starts with an OLED panel displaying “multiple face images” that are separated and passed through a lenticular layer, then through another “same lenticular” layer to expand the image for the entire area, and then through a secondary lens. This creates two images that are slightly different from each other, giving your eyes a 3D effect.

But all this manipulation also results in a blurry and dull image, which many reviewers have complained about, making it difficult to see the eyes on the Vision Pro's external display.

The battery pack weighs 353g and consists of three iPhone-sized batteries with a total capacity of 35.9Wh. That's more than double the iPhone 15 Pro's 17.3 Wh. At the same time, the batteries themselves weigh a total of 184 g, which is only half the weight of the entire battery pack.

Apple Vision Pro uses a proprietary battery cable connection that locks magnetically and then twists until it locks into place. This is logical to prevent the cable from being accidentally removed if it accidentally gets caught on something. The connector at the other end of the cable is neither a standard USB-C solution nor a proprietary Lightning solution. This is a new connector, similar to Lightning, but larger in size. God of connectors needs more connectors. As a result, users will not be able to use power banks with a standard USB-C connector – they will need to buy branded Apple products.

iFixit claims Apple's Vision Pro headset is too complex for one video and promises it will show “just how deep this rabbit hole goes” later.
