One of the best features of the Apple Vision Pro are its two micro-OLED displays. These displays can boast a particularly sharp image. Server iFixit he found out how it was possible and therefore carried out disassembly of the device.
The iFixit team found that the screens have incredible pixel density – 12,078,000 pixels fit on 6.3 square centimeters. This means that each individual pixel is only 7,5 μmwhich is roughly size Red blood cells.
For comparison, one iPhone 15 Pro pixel can fit 54 Apple Vision Pro pixels. iFixit reports that micro-OLED displays are likely custom made by Sonybased on various structural changes.
An important measure of pixel density is PPI (pixels per inch) and Vision Pro came up with a value 3 386 PPI. The iPhone 15 Pro boasts a PPI of “only” 460. As impressive as these numbers are, Apple’s Vision Pro displays not 4K. The 4K resolution refers to a horizontal display resolution of around 4,000 pixels, so the Vision Pro is just a hair short of the consumer UHD standard with a width of 3,840 pixels. But it doesn’t really matter too much, as a standard 4K TV only has a pixel density of around 140 PPI.
Another important piece of information is PPD (pixels per degree) which takes into account how far you are from the screen and the overall angle. iFixit estimates that the Vision Pro has an average of 34 PPD. That’s a very good number for a display that sits so close to the eye. For comparison, PlayStation VR2 averages 19 PPD and Meta Quest 3 averages 25 PPD.
