Apple Continues Refining visionOS With Fourth Beta Release

Apple today seeded the fourth beta of visionOS, the software that runs on the upcoming Vision Pro headset. The third beta came out in late August, so it has been more than a month since Apple last released a ‌visionOS‌ update.

Only a limited number of developers have access to Vision Pro at this time, with the headsets used for app testing purposes. Most people will not have access to the ‌visionOS‌ beta outside of Xcode, and it is not yet clear what Apple is adding in each ‌visionOS‌ update.

Apple is allowing developers to attend Vision Pro labs around the world, and developers who visit these locations are able to test the Vision Pro in person and get help from Apple engineers on their ‌visionOS‌ apps.

The Vision Pro headset is not expected until early 2024, so Apple still has a lot of work to do on both hardware and software. We are expecting either this beta or a beta shortly after to introduce the official ‌visionOS‌ App Store that Apple has been working on.

Still shocked at the $3500 price point for this, curious what they expect sales to be
The first Mac released in 1984 is almost exactly $3500 in today’s dollars. It’s not that extreme. Especially for a brand new product category.

Go Vpro go! I look forward to using massive screens without the weight of physical equivalents... and no creases or rolls. I hope this is amazing and look forward to seeing it with my own eyes in a demo.

I wonder if they will put the M3 in it with added hardware race tracing from the A17 Pro.

Iʼve read that Apple has invested over $40 billion dollars in VR & AR — the price of $3499 seems reasonable, it could have been higher.

I personally can not wait for this product. I work at home with multiple people Nationwide remotely & have tried many other virtual environments via Meta and others and nothing comes close to what I have already seen this headset capable of When it comes to performing my daily routine and workflows via this headset.

During the keynote my finger was hovering over the proverbial Buy Now button No Matter the cost, had it been there.. and was greatly disappointed when they announced early next year 2024.

Very eager to get my hands on this product and see what I can achieve work wise with it. Yea there will be a lag of time until the App Store gets a good following etc. and those that believe it to be a gaming headset while also *Griping about the cost, however those people will not delight in the many features for work flow, I myself will be looking for, finally a professional headset with great graphics, tied into the Apple ecosystem and able to perform most if not all my daily workload tasks. Bring it on!
