Apple is gearing up for the launch of the Apple Vision Pro with over 600 apps and games optimized for its innovative spatial computing device. Last week, a third-party analysis reported 150+ apps designed for the Vision Pro. However, Apple’s latest announcement reveals a substantial increase, providing developers with a robust platform. This news follows Apple’s compliance plan with the EU’s Digital Markets Act, facing criticism from Spotify, Epic Games, and Microsoft. Despite concerns about a potential decline in developer interest, Apple reassures users by emphasizing the Vision Pro’s extensive app catalog, showcasing its 3D user interface navigated by eyes, hands, and voice.
Notable streaming apps supporting the Vision Pro include Disney+, ESPN, MLB, PGA Tour, and others. Gaming enthusiasts can anticipate titles like BA 2K24 Arcade Edition and Sonic Dream Team, with Apple Arcade offering a catalog of 250+ games without in-app purchases or ads. Productivity apps like MindNote, OmniFocus, OmniPlan, and Microsoft 365 are highlighted, emphasizing the Vision Pro’s versatility. The device also features apps from cable companies such as Charter Spectrum, Comcast Xfinity, Cox Contour, and Verizon Fios, along with support from sports broadcasters like CBS, NBC, Fox Sports, and UFC.
Apple aims to address concerns about the Vision Pro’s gaming offerings by showcasing a variety of titles, including relaxing 3D dioramas from Loóna, spatial puzzles in Blackbox, and the skateboarding app Skatrick Pro. Users can access Mac App Store games and apps like Steam via Mac Virtual Display. The Vision Pro’s App Store introduces an array of titles, from educational apps like solAR to medical apps like Insight Heart and Complete HeartX. Additionally, mindfulness and wellness apps, music apps, and shopping apps are among the diverse selection available.
While the Appfigures count indicates over 350 apps available as of today, it is evident that developers are finalizing their app submissions, contributing to the anticipation surrounding the Vision Pro’s extensive app ecosystem.
