AirPods/Beats

All current models of AirPods and Beats headphones are able to connect to the Vision Pro. Apple recommends the AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C Charging Case for the best experience because it supports Lossless Audio and ultra-low latency, while older AirPods models do not.

Keyboards

Most Bluetooth keyboards made by Apple and other manufacturers will work with the Vision Pro. The Vision Pro is not compatible with older Apple keyboards that use removable batteries.

The Vision Pro has a virtual keyboard that can be used, but for anything beyond entering a password or typing a quick message, users will want a Bluetooth keyboard.

Mice and Trackpads

The ‌Apple Vision Pro‌ does not work with Bluetooth mice at all. It does work with the Apple Magic Trackpad, but older Trackpads with removable batteries are not compatible, nor are trackpads from other manufacturers.

Controllers

All Made for iPhone Bluetooth controllers can connect to the Vision Pro, including Xbox and PlayStation controllers. Apple says that any controller that works with iPadOS will work with Vision Pro.

Hearing Devices

Made for ‌iPhone‌ hearing devices are able to connect to the Vision Pro. Some models by Phonak, IQBud, and Poco are also compatible with the headset.

Then what can you do with AR/VR? The major market for consumer AR/VR is the gaming, nothing else.

Magic Trackpad only for pointing devices? That seems like a weird limitation. We’re in the weird phase where Apple really wants everyone to get used to their new input methods of choice before kludging together older approaches

What's your point? That "barely any sold, so it's a flop" ... ?

Prepare to eat your words. This slower start was expected and exactly what Apple planned for.
I'm just saying..
like many on this forum, I know lots of apple fans with lots and lots of apple devices from phones, to watches, to ipads, to macbooks and airpods and speakers.. None and I do mean none, have any desire to buy one of these..

I'm sure the apple stores will be packed with people who want to see this, touch it, take selfies, maybe even book an appointment for a demo, but what % of those will actually slide their card and actually walk out with one?

Apples main strategy is to hook them in the ecosystem while their young, and in most cases, the young can't afford this item..

I do hope they learn from its pros and cons and make one more cost friendly in a few years to make it more appealing..

your Mac must have macOS 14 Sonoma or later.

f you have a Mac with Apple silicon ('https://support.apple.com/116943'), it can appear in Apple Vision Pro at resolutions up to 4K. If your Mac has an Intel processor, it can appear at resolutions up to 3K.

Are you saying this statement is incorrect?
These are remote controllers dedicated for VR/AR devices. Vision Pro mainly relies on eye tracking and gesture which is not that great. Beside, Vision Pro lack gaming features and it doesn't even have major VR/AR game platforms such as Steam. The consumer AR/VR market is dominated by gaming and yet Vision Pro have no such things. For example, are you gonna play Half Life-Alyx with xbox or PS console controller?

To be honest if you want games you’ll need a quest.

It’s like buying a pc for games and a Mac for other stuff.
Then what can you do with AR/VR? The major market for consumer AR/VR is the gaming, nothing else. Otherwise, it has to be B2B with specific uses but Vision Pro is a consumer device. Right now, Vision Pro has limited uses. If you want to attract customers, you really need games, nothing else. If you really think Vision Pro is only for watching movies, view apps, using Mac's screen, and more, then that's a huge limitation.

For AR/VR market, gaming is extremely important which you can not ignore. Otherwise, Vision Pro will ends up as failure since almost all consumer AR/VR devices failed at the consumer market. That's why many of them changed its target from consumer to B2B such as MS Holo lens 2. Even Meta with 20 million sales was NOT successful.
