Apple Vision Pro glass scratches like plastic the headset

Apple Vision Pro glass scratches like plastic – the headset has been tested for resistance to damage

Last week, deliveries of the Apple Vision Pro AR/VR headset began and the new product has already been received by thousands of customers who have pre-ordered the device. One of the first to receive the Vision Pro was the author of the YouTube channel JerryRigEverything, who tested the new product for durability and, among other things, found out how resistant the front panel of the headset is to scratches.

In a recently published video, the blogger uses tools to determine Mohs hardness. Small scratches on the front panel of the Vision Pro appear already at the second level, while at the fourth they become much deeper. These indicators correspond to the usual hardness of plastic, so with a high degree of confidence we can assume that the top layer of the front panel of the headset is made of plastic.

Interestingly, the description of the Vision Pro says that the front panel of the device is made of laminated glass, but the scratch resistance test shows that this is not the case. Vision Pro owners are advised not to use anything other than the high-quality microfiber cloth that comes with the device to wipe the front panel. Otherwise, during operation, scratches will quickly appear on the front panel. It was also noted that the headset’s eyepieces are also easily scratched, and unlike the outer glass, scratches here can ruin the user experience.

The blogger also conducted a bending test on the device, but the headset handled it well due to its fairly thick design. In terms of fire resistance, the headset strap catches fire easily.
