During the presentation of the Vision Pro headset, Apple shared excellent presentations, which showed the full potential of this AR/VR product. However, for this potential to be exploited, users must be able to enjoy a wide choice of content. This is why Apple invited developers to publish apps in the visionOS operating system App Store.

Apps missing

Unfortunately, some of the most popular entertainment apps on the web may be missing from the Vision Pro headset. For example, we already have confirmation that YouTube, Google's video platform, will not be available as a native application. According to our colleagues at The Verge, this was confirmed by a Google representative. However, it indicated that users will be able to watch YouTube videos by opening the web version on the Vision Pro's Safari browser.

And like YouTube, Netflix will also not be available as a native app. Quoted in another article from The Verge, Netflix explains that as on Macs, users of the Vision Pro headset will have to be content with the web browser version of the platform, to enjoy films and series from it. And that's not all, since Spotify, a competitor to Apple Music, could also be unavailable, in the form of an application.

This is in any case what is suggested by an article from Bloomberg, which adds that even the Spotify iPad application would not be available on Vision Pro. However, for its part, the leader in music streaming does not confirm this information and indicates that no announcement has yet been made on this subject.

Apple highlights before immersive content

To be clear, YouTube, Netflix and Spotify will be accessible on Vision Pro headsets, via the Safari browser. However, without a native app, the experience may be quite limited. But to promote its headset, Apple highlights the content of its Apple TV+ streaming service. The app catalog also includes major platforms, including Disney+, ESPN, NBA, MLB, PGA Tour, Max, Discovery+, Amazon Prime Video, Paramount+, Peacock, Pluto TV, Tubi, Fubo, Crunchyroll, Red Bull TV, IMAX and TikTok. In addition, the Vision Pro allows you to watch a catalog of 150 3D films.

And Disney+ already plans to offer 3D versions of content from its catalog. “Apple Vision Pro is a revolutionary platform that will bring our fans closer to the characters and stories they love while immersing them deeper in everything Disney has to offer. We are proud to once again partner with Apple to bring extraordinary new Disney experiences to people around the world”, said Disney CEO Bob Iger.

Possible out of stock

It remains to be seen whether this content will allow Apple to appeal to the crowds. At the moment, it is too early to say. But, in any case, the famous analyst Ming Chi Kuo has already mentioned the possibility of a stock shortage for this headset at $3,499, pre-orders for which begin on January 19.

“Thanks to demand from core Apple fans and heavy users, the Vision Pro is expected to sell out shortly after it becomes available for pre-order or sale, which which would result in a longer delivery time. Otherwise, Vision Pro may take longer to become a success, which would hurt the short-term stock performance of Apple and its supply chain. -he writes in a blog post.

  • YouTube and Netflix do not offer native applications for Apple's Vision Pro headset, but will be accessible on Safari (like on computers)
  • Rumors suggest that the The Spotify application would also be unavailable
  • But Apple can rely on other partners to provide content, including Disney+
  • < li>At the moment, we don't know if this helmet will sell well, but analyst Ming Chi Kuo has already mentioned the possibility of a stock shortage
