Meta Quest 3 is expected to be released before the end of 2023, beating Apple's Vision Pro to the market. And while it isn't aimed at professional use like Apple's upcoming mixed-reality headset, it does introduce some similar design tweaks. And it will cost less than a quarter of the price.

Meta hasn't yet announced a definitive release date, but it says the Meta Quest 3 will be available "this fall" starting from $499.99. It looks set to build on the 2020 Oculus Quest 2 with a slimmer, lighter design and other improvements. Here's everything we know so far (see our pick of the best VR headsets for art and gaming for current options).
