“Apple Vision Pro and its battery contain magnets or components that emit radio waves, which could affect the operation of nearby electronics, including cardiac pacemakers, hearing aids, and defibrillators,” Apple added.
No problems likely for these users
Customers who wear prescription glasses may not have a problem but they will need a prescription for Zeiss-made optical inserts. A reporter for The Times of India Tech-Gadgets Now was among the first ones to have tried the Vision Pro when it was launched. Apple quickly took the power of the glasses and customised them quickly to suit the wearer.
