I'm just surprised how close it looks to that render that was used all the time.

There were no misses, Apple made those last minute changes, per analysts.

I'm really surprised that Apple didn't push out fake leaks saying the headset would be $4000-$6000 in order to pull the iPad strategy again. I really expected it to shockingly come out at $2000 or less considering the $3000 rumor.

Everyone got the price wrong for the Apple Vision Pro. However, no one expected this to happen yesterday.

Nearly all claims made by previously-accurate Twitter account @analyst941 were false
Because Apple had been feeding that person's source fake information to track down a leak. There was a thread about it a few weeks ago.
