Vision Pro Light Seal fitting process needs refinements.

In the past 17 days, we have driven more than 1,000 miles trying to get the proper Light Seal for our Apple Vision Pro. What we’ve determined is that one size does not fit all and that Apple needs to figure out a better process for this part of the Apple Vision Pro. I do want to say that with a couple of small exceptions, the Apple employees we worked with were trying to help as much as they could.

  6. Lexington, KY → ~220 miles

Naturally, we wanted to have one in our hands quicker, and taking a trip to Louisville (Apple Oxmoor) wasn’t out of the question. So, we placed the order online for in-store pickup and hopped into the car.
