Apple invited developers to its laboratories in eight cities around the world to get to know Vision Pro

Apple has announced the expansion of the number of laboratories where developers will be able to test the Vision Pro mixed reality headset. New facilities opened in Sydney and New York.

Those who want to test the solution can apply to visit the laboratories in eight cities: Cupertino, London, Munich, Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo, Sydney and New York.

The corporation invites specialists to take part in the tests, and also encourages them to share their experience with Apple experts. In this way, the company intends to receive feedback for the further development of programs on VisionOS, iPadOS and iOS.

Previously, Cupertino was the only city in the US where a Vision Pro laboratory was located. Apple’s headquarters are located there. Opening a lab in New York will make it easier for developers on the US East Coast to test the headset without having to cross the country.

In the laboratories, specialists will be able to test their programs for Vision Pro. Apple engineers are on site to provide support.

The corporation presented the Vision Pro in the summer as part of the WWDC 2023 presentation. Apple announced that sales of the headset will start in 2024 at a price of $3.5 thousand. Bloomberg insider Mark Gurman said that the company is also working on a budget version of the device, the cost of which will be $1.5- 2 thousand

The flagship Vision Pro is equipped with M2 and R1 chips, 12 cameras, 5 sensors and 6 microphones. Two microOLED 4K screens with a total resolution of 23 MP are responsible for video, and two speakers with support for spatial audio are responsible for sound.
