Apple (AAPL) unveiled its Vision Pro at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference on June 5. We were impressed with the new major product launch, its first since the release of the Apple Watch nearly a decade ago but estimating the total market opportunity for a $3,499 device is a difficult one. The Vision Pro will be available in early 2024 and will compete in many areas with the Meta (META) Quest, and we expect Apple’s annual numbers come next year to be impressive. The market for high-end consumer devices is a large one, and from what we can tell, the number of possible applications of the Vision Pro are many. We’re not making any changes to our valuation of Apple until we get a better feel for just how big of a needle-mover the Vision Pro will be, but we expect to raise our fair value estimate of Apple. The company has another winner on its hands, in our view.
