Apple did not provide a specific release date in July for the public betas, and it appears that visionOS 2 will not be available as a public beta, at least initially.

Anyone can join Apple's public beta testing program for free, allowing them to test out the updates next month without paying for Apple Developer Program membership.

Apple developers can test all of the new updates starting today, including visionOS 2.
