Tesla has laid off more than 14% of its employees this year

According to a CNBC report, Tesla’s internal records show that Tesla’s global employee count has dropped to about 121,000. CNBC said this data comes from the number of people on Tesla's email distribution list on June 17.

The affordable version of Vision Pro needs to be used with Mac/iPhone

Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman pointed out in the latest "Power On" that Apple is developing an affordable version of Vision Pro, internally code-named N107.

Gurman said that Apple hopes that the device, code-named N107, will be launched on the market as early as the end of 2025. Compared to the $3,500 price of the Vision Pro, the affordable version of the Vision Pro is targeted at $1,500 to $2,000.

Apple may remove the EyeSight display from the affordable Vision Pro and lower the specifications of the internal VR screen. In addition, the affordable version of Vision Pro will have a smaller field of view, and Apple is considering using this device with Mac/iPhone.
