Apple Vision Pro: Is it Safe for Society?

The View From the Den: Podcast Episode 2

Within Grandview, there have been tense debates on the safety implications of the newest technological marvel, the Apple Vision Pro; however, amidst the excitement, voices of caution are beginning to surface, raising concerns about the possible widespread application of this technology.

“I feel like it’s just like the movies. Technology will eventually catch up and even surpass humans,” sophomore Connor Stutman said.

Students all around the world are fascinated by the Apple Vision Pro because of its innovative features, which include real-time translation, immersive learning environments, and seamless interaction with daily chores.

“I really love how it can be interacted with from anywhere and you can do basically anything you can usually do on your phone or Macbook,” says Tommy Sitter, a sophomore at Regis High School that owns one of these devices. “It’s really helpful for just everyday life and I love how easy it is to use.” 

Apple Vision Pro supporters believe that the device’s cutting-edge features might change education, improve productivity, and accelerate communication. Advocates think it might empower people and advance a variety of areas since it can instantly access large information stores and foster cooperation.

“I think the Apple Vision Pro is a game-changer,” Stutman said. “It opens up endless possibilities for learning and exploration.”

However, some members of the younger generation continue to remain skeptical due to worries about privacy, distraction, and the possibility of addiction. Others fear that living in augmented reality all the time might worsen already-existing imbalances, deteriorate real-world social relationships, and blur the lines between virtual and actual worlds.

“I’m not convinced that these gadgets are entirely safe,” Sitter said. “They offer a lot of fancy features, but at what cost? We need to think critically about how they might reshape our society and the way we interact with each other.”

Even if there is still much controversy, one thing is certain: the Apple Vision Pro can help people to think about the future they see for themselves and society as a whole.

“I bet Apple and other companies are gonna make [the Apple Vision Pro] better and better in the future, and the Apple Vision Pro that we see now won’t even be half as good as it will be in the future,” sophomore Rhett Charles said.
