Apple Vision Pro Secures FCC Approval Sans Wi-Fi 6E Support

January 17, 2024 – In a recent development, Apple’s Vision Pro has obtained FCC certification ahead of its market debut. Surprisingly, the FCC documents confirm that the Apple Vision Pro does not support Wi-Fi 6E, a departure from the trend seen in other Apple devices such as the iPad Pro, iPhone 15 Pro series, and most Mac devices from 2023, all of which embrace Wi-Fi 6E technology.

Wi-Fi 6E, with the “E” standing for Extended, is characterized by its crucial feature of supporting the 6GHz frequency band. This inclusion allows routers to utilize a new frequency band beyond the existing 2.4GHz and 5GHz standards. The absence of Wi-Fi 6E support in the Apple Vision Pro means the device is limited to operating on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands.

Scheduled for pre-sale on January 19 and official release on February 2, the Apple Vision Pro comes with a price tag of $3499, approximately 25,000 Chinese Yuan. Apple emphasizes that the Vision Pro is not an Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR) device; rather, it is a spatial computing device. This innovative gadget seamlessly integrates digital content with the physical world, allowing users to interact with applications using their eyes, movements, and voice.
