Here Are All the 'Environments' You Can Experience in visionOS

With the Vision Pro headset, there is an option to activate an Environment that allows you to shut out the world around you. While Apple has mentioned Mount Hood as an Environment you can visit and use as a backdrop, there are several others.

Apple today released the first version of visionOS, which can be experienced using the latest Xcode beta, and the ‌visionOS‌ update has given us some insight into new ‌visionOS‌ features. Here are the available environments right now:

  • Haleakalā
  • Yosemite
  • Sky
  • Joshua Tree
  • Lake Vrangla
  • Mount Hood
  • The Moon
  • Beach
  • White Sands
  • Winter Light
  • Fall Light
  • Summer Light
  • Spring Light

Vision Pro users will be able to enter a virtual environment by turning the Digital Crown to shut out the real world. Environments can be used as a background for watching movies, using apps, making calls, and more.

(Thanks, Steve Moser!)

How about classic Windows XP background as an environment?

I look forward to visiting Mount Doom after I get in trouble for spending $3500 + $350 sales tax on Apple sunglasses.

I noticed in the Disney section of the presentation, they showed watching the Mandalorian, from a Tatooine environment.

That immediately had me wanting to watch all my content from an appropriate environment. Fantasy shows from an old Castle. Star Trek from the Bridge of the enterprise, etc...
