Apple Vision Pro likely to come to the UK and Canada late next year after initial US launch
Apple Vision Pro — Apple’s new mixed-reality headset, which blends augmented and virtual reality into one device, will launch in the UK and Canada in late 2024 after making it debut in the US “early next year,” suggests Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.
In his weekly Power On newsletter on Sunday, Gurman says “Apple is planning to require shoppers to make appointments to pick up and try on the Vision Pro. There also will be special Vision Pro areas in its flagship stores for curious customers.”
“The Vision Pro will launch in the US only, before heading to the UK and Canada as early as the end of the year.”
The tidbit from Gurman follows after he claimed earlier in the year that Apple Vision Pro availability will expand beyond the US before the end of next year, with the iPhone maker allegedly working to localize the device for France, Germany, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan and Korea, readying the device for a further international expansion beyond 2024.
Apple’s new Vision Pro mixed-reality headset blends digital content with the physical world through a fully three-dimensional user interface controlled by a user’s eyes, hands, and voice.
Built on the foundation of macOS, iOS, and iPadOS, visionOS is a new operating system that delivers spatial experiences for the Apple Vision Pro headset. visionOS features a new three-dimensional interface that makes digital content look and feel present in a user’s physical world.
