Here Are All the Apps Pre-Installed on the Apple Vision Pro

The Vision Pro comes with a number of Apple apps that are also available on the iPhone and the iPad. We've seen some of the apps over the past few months in tidbits of information that Apple has provided, but the Vision Pro technical specifications that went live today alongside pre-orders list every app that the device comes with.

Pre-installed apps optimized for Vision Pro:

  • App Store
  • Encounter Dinosaurs
  • Files
  • Freeform
  • Keynote
  • Mail
  • Messages
  • Mindfulness
  • Music
  • Notes
  • Photos
  • Safari
  • Settings
  • Tips
  • TV

Pre-installed apps not optimized for Vision Pro:

  • Books
  • Calendar
  • Home
  • Maps
  • News
  • Podcasts
  • Reminders
  • Shortcuts
  • Stocks
  • Voice Memos

Curiously, while there is a Keynote app that's pre-installed, Apple does not list the other iWork apps like Pages and Numbers. Find My is not on Apple's list, nor are the Health, Clock, Contacts, and Weather apps. FaceTime is not on the list, but the fine print confirms that there is indeed a FaceTime app and also a Capture app for taking video and photos on the device.

There may be some Apple apps that are not pre-installed but able to be downloaded from the App Store after launch, and there will be a number of third-party apps designed for the Vision Pro.

We'll be sharing a list of Vision Pro apps closer to when the headset debuts, and it is also worth noting that many iOS apps will run on the device automatically unless developers opt out.

That’s a lot of 3D apps!

And, as expected, no calculator app.

Apple’s VR is dead on arrival.

This is a result of Apple’s poor relationship with app developers and competitors.

As we have now seen all the major companies Apple desperately needs are not only not developing for Vision Pro but are yanking their iPad versions from being compatible too.

I suspect their behaviour with the 27% third party app store fee this week has been the straw that broke the camels back.

Downvote me all you want but these are facts… they have no interest at all supporting Apple’s entry into another new category and for once Apple needs them more than they need Apple.

Apple are screwed.
Vision Pro is dead on arrival.
Save this post and look at it again in two years.
Facts? Based on what? Pulling things out of the air. It’s not surprising that developers aren’t rushing to develop for it with the reported sales forecasts but it doesn’t mean it will fail. When consumers start demanding it the developers will bring their apps. The first iPad barely did anything and was absolutely useless and hss survived fine.
