Billionaire Elon Musk tried to play down Apple Vision Pro’s positioning as a “moon shot” attempt by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) after expressing his desire to try it out earlier.

Musk laughed at Apple CEO Tim Cook‘s feature in the latest issue of Vanity Fair magazine, minimizing its importance despite Apple’s ambitious bet.

Why It Matters: Even as Apple Vision Pro’s hefty $3,500 price tag has come into question, Cook defended it by saying it comes with an “incredible amount of technology.”

Early pre-order numbers have surprised analysts, too. While Ming-Chi Kuo called it a “better than expected” performance, Wedbush’s Daniel Ives upgraded the outlook for 2024.

Ives now predicts Apple Vision Pro shipments will reach 600,000 units in 2024, up from 460,000 units previously.
