Apple Releases visionOS 1.0.1 Ahead of Vision Pro Launch

While the Vision Pro does not launch until February 2, Apple today released visionOS 1.0.1 for the headset, according to developer Nicolás Álvarez. It's unclear what's new in the software update, as Apple has yet to start publicly sharing visionOS release notes, but the version number suggests that it's likely a minor update with bug fixes.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman said that Apple would start shipping Vision Pro review units to selected media personnel following a January 23 meeting, so visionOS 1.0.1 should be available on those headsets as an immediate update out of the box. It could also be a day-one update for the public if initial Vision Pro units ship with visionOS 1.0 installed.

visionOS 1.0.1 is the first-ever software update for the Vision Pro, and it has a build number of 21N311, according to Álvarez. Apple will likely unveil a larger visionOS 2.0 update with new features at WWDC in June.

No YouTube, No Spotify, No Netflix……I planned on buying Vision Pro w my tax refund now having second thoughts, Tim Cook and his greedy $3,500 pricing is beginning to irritate me
Damn dude, if you have that big a tax refund, fix your withholding. You're giving Uncle Sam a free $3500+ loan over the course of a year!

My question is will you be able to drive a car while wearing this? It seems like it wouldn’t really be the same as being distracted by holding a phone and looking down at it while driving. If it works ok while driving I think a lot more people will be interested in it. Will you have to cheat the settings somehow to be able to do this?
That seems like a really bad idea. Don't do safety-critical things (like driving) while wearing a device that would leave you temporarily blind if it fails (like VR glasses with passthrough video).

Tell the developers of those apps to go check a box?
Vision Pro support is on by default for iOS/iPad apps, the developers of those apps went out of their way to turn it off. It's a deliberate decision to not support Vision Pro.

Same build number designation as iOS. Just confirms visionOS is a variant of iOS and not macOS.

Oh, and PS:

Someone IS going to get behind the wheel of a car with one of these on. Be careful out there. It would be a shame if someone actually gets killed due to that kind of raw stupidity.
