Today at WWDC 2024, Apple revealed VisionOS 2, the first major update for its Vision Pro headset. The new version of the software will be available for developers to experiment with starting today.

VisionOS 2 is primarily designed to round out some rough edges from the headset’s release earlier this year, while adding some new features and also expanding development capabilities so developers can take greater advantage of the headset.

While it won’t release publicly until the fall, Apple says developers can get their hands on VisionOS 2 starting today. We haven’t spotted the direct page to the developer preview update yet, but the company says it will be available through its official developer website.

    Looks like a 1.5 version to me.
    What they should really add is game controllers support (even only Apple TM approved bullshit).
    Anyway, at this price, it’s like commenting about Bugatti.
