visionOS App Store surpasses 1,000 apps designed specifically for Vision Pro

Apple has announced that the visionOS App Store now boasts over 1,000 apps specifically designed for the recently launched Apple Vision Pro headset.

Initially, during the headset’s release earlier this month, Apple had indicated that the App Store would feature more than 600 apps optimized for the new hardware on the first day. This latest confirmation from Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of marketing, highlights the rapid growth of apps tailored to leverage the capabilities of the Vision Pro.

Expressing gratitude to developers for their dedication and innovation, Joswiak acknowledged their hard work in expanding the possibilities of the Vision Pro. The visionOS App Store, which currently offers over 1.5 million compatible apps in total, has become a hub for spatial apps, with the recent milestone of 1,000 apps designed explicitly for the Vision Pro hardware.

However, controversies surround the visionOS App Store, as several notable apps such as Netflix, Spotify, YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok are currently absent. Despite Apple showcasing immersive experiences with apps like Disney+, NBA, and HBO’s Max, there remains a gap in the availability of some widely used apps on the platform. Developers have the option to exclude their iPadOS apps from Vision Pro compatibility, contributing to the ongoing discussions about the App Store’s inclusivity. As the Vision Pro ecosystem evolves, the industry awaits further developments and potential expansions to enhance user experiences.
