Upcoming visionOS developer beta to include App Store
Apple has announced that later this fall, it will be releasing a new visionOS developer beta that will include the App Store, featuring apps and games built for visionOS, as well as hundreds of thousands of iPad and iPhone apps that run on visionOS too.
By default, iPad and/or iPhone apps already available on the App Store will be available automatically on the App Store on Apple Vision Pro. Most frameworks available in iPadOS and iOS are also included in visionOS, which means nearly all iPad and iPhone apps can run on visionOS, unmodified.
Developers will have the option to remove their existing iPad and/or iPhone apps from the visionOS App Store, and create specific visionOS versions of their apps using the new visionOS software development kit (SDK).
