Apple announced today that the Apple TV app will have more than 150 3D movie and TV show options for Apple Vision Pro users to watch when it launches.
While the Vision Pro will work with any TV show or movie available through the device’s Apple TV app, specific titles have been updated with 3D to provide an even more immersive experience.Non-3D TV shows and films will be shown on a screen that “feels 100 feet wide.”
Apple has created Apple Immersive Video, a “new entertainment format” designed to immerse users in action with 180-degree 3D 8K video recordings captured with Spatial Audio, as well as interactive experiences such as “Encounter Dinosaurs.”
In terms of gaming, the Vision Pro will support over 250 titles from Apple Arcade, with the content playable in 2D using a game controller. There are also a few “spatial games” for the device, such as Game Room, What the Golf?, and Super Fruit Ninja. According to Apple, these games use the Vision Pro’s ability to transform the space around players, providing “unique and engaging gameplay experiences.”
The Vision Pro will be available for purchase on Friday, February 2, with Apple beginning to accept pre-orders on Friday, January 19. The Vision Pro will initially be available only in the United States.
