Apple has already raised eyebrows with the anticipated price tag of its 'extended reality' (XR) headset, the Vision Pro. Due to launch next year, the device is expected to cost $3,499. And, of course, there will be accessories on top of that.

We've already heard that the top strap may not come included with the headset. Now a new patent describes a much more intriguing accessory, but people can't agree on what it is or what it's for (see our pick of the best Apple deals for bargains on the company's current tech).
