Apple had announced the day before Vision Pro’s release that users could explore over 1 million applications on Vision Pro, including 600 applications specifically developed for Vision Pro. Apple’s native applications on visionOS can make use of Vision Pro’s features such as Optic ID iris identity verification system, Spatial Audio, and VisionKit development framework.

A variety of popular applications, including video conferencing app Zoom, Microsoft 365 office software, and collaboration tool Slack, are included in the first batch of applications for Vision Pro. However, concerning streaming apps, despite Apple having its streaming service and support from Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video, global streaming giants like Netflix, YouTube, and Spotify have shown no intention to develop applications solely for Vision Pro.

Apple’s Vice President of Global Developer Relations, Susan Prescott, stated, “Vision Pro is unlocking the imagination of our global developer community‚Ķ These incredible applications will change the way we experience entertainment, music, and gaming; inspire our creativity to learn and explore in new ways; enhance productivity in unprecedented ways, and much more. Developers have begun harnessing the power of spatial computing, and we can’t wait to see what they will create next.”
