The Vision Pro headset that Apple plans to launch next year will have displays that support a refresh rate of up to 100 Hz, according to Code latest beta of visionOS.
Apple says the Vision Pro headset runs at a 90Hz refresh rate most of the time, but in an online WWDC session the company said it can also switch to 96Hz to support video content recorded at 24 frames per second were filmed.
code found by M1 Astra confirms that Vision Pro’s actual maximum refresh rate is 100Hz, but 100Hz is a mode that is only activated to “compensate for detected 50Hz flicker from artificial lighting.”

The headset can switch between 90 Hz, 96 Hz and 100 Hz modes, but works mostly at 90 Hz. In “Travel Mode”, a mode that can be set when the headset is used on the go, such as on a flight, it is 90 Hz maximum.
The two displays in the Vision Pro headset are custom micro-OLED screens with a total of 23 million pixels, more pixels than a 4K TV for each eye. The Vision Pro headset is expected to be released next year.
