Apple Vision Pro Pre-Orders Open Globally Starting in June

Apple announced today that its revolutionary Apple Vision Pro will soon be available for pre-order in new international markets.

Starting on June 13, customers in China mainland, Hong Kong, Japan, and Singapore can place their pre-orders, with the devices becoming available on June 28. Meanwhile, customers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom can pre-order on June 28, with availability beginning July 12.

Apple Vision Pro, the company’s groundbreaking spatial computer, promises to transform how users interact with digital content, offering immersive experiences that blend seamlessly with the physical world. The device is powered by visionOS, a cutting-edge operating system designed to provide an intuitive spatial user interface navigable by eye, hand, and voice.

“The enthusiasm for Apple Vision Pro has been extraordinary,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We are thrilled to introduce the magic of spatial computing to more customers around the world.”

Innovative Features and Capabilities

Apple Vision Pro is built upon decades of innovation in iOS, iPadOS, and macOS, ensuring a seamless integration with Apple’s ecosystem. Users can interact with apps by simply looking at them and tapping their fingers, dictating text, or using Siri for various tasks. The device’s infinite canvas allows apps to appear side by side at any scale, enhancing productivity and entertainment experiences.

VisionOS 2, which will be available as a free update this fall, introduces features such as transforming photos into 3D memories, new hand gestures for easier navigation, and enhancements for Mac Virtual Display and other utilities.

Rich App Ecosystem

The App Store for Apple Vision Pro boasts over 2,000 dedicated apps and more than 1.5 million compatible iOS and iPadOS apps. This extensive catalog includes leading business and productivity tools like Slack, Webex, and Microsoft 365, alongside utility apps like AirLauncher and Widgetsmith. Entertainment options are abundant, with top streaming services such as Apple TV+, Disney+, and Amazon Prime Video offering content optimized for the Vision Pro’s immersive capabilities.

Unparalleled Hardware Design

Apple Vision Pro features a compact, wearable design with ultra-high-resolution micro-OLED displays, providing more pixels than a 4K TV for each eye. The advanced Spatial Audio system and a high-performance eye tracking system ensure a responsive and immersive user experience. Powered by Apple’s M2 and R1 chips, the device delivers robust performance and seamless integration of visual and sensory inputs.

Environmental Commitment

Continuing its commitment to sustainability, Apple has designed the Vision Pro with 100% recycled rare earth elements and high standards for energy efficiency. The packaging is entirely fiber-based, aligning with Apple’s goal to eliminate plastics by 2025.
