A sketchy rumor on X suggests that Apple's next-generation AR headset, the Apple Vision Pro 2, could hit the market by 2026 at a price significantly lower than its predecessor.

The rumor, originating from a relatively new account on X, claims that the Apple Vision Pro 2 will be priced between $1,500 and $2,500, making it potentially less than half the cost of the original model, which is priced at $3,500.

According to the post, the new headset is said to be entering the Chinese SeeYa supply chain, with component samples already sent to Apple for evaluation.

While the timing of the release aligns with other speculation about the Apple Vision Pro 2, the credibility of the price claim remains questionable. The source lacks a proven track record, and there's uncertainty around its identity, with speculation that it could be a return of a previous leaker.

Other rumors from more reliable sources suggest a potential update as soon as the summer of 2025, though possibly extending into 2026. Additionally, there have been hints of a cheaper model in development, which could see a reduced price tag but may still range around $2,000 due to the high production costs associated with AR technology.

Given the expensive nature of the first-generation Apple Vision Pro, which costs Apple an estimated $1,542 per headset in components alone, halving the price for the Pro model seems unlikely without significant cost-saving breakthroughs.
