Unity added support for Apple Vision Pro for all game developers

The blog of the Unity engine revealed that all game developers can now create applications for Apple Vision Pro. Tools for working with visionOS are available in Unity Pro, Enterprise and Industry tariffs.

Unity launched Vision Pro support in beta in July 2023. The testing was closed, so only selected developers and companies got access to it. Now the Unity blog said that anyone can create games and programs for Apple’s branded headset.

The solution from Unity supports the following program formats:

  • fully immersive spaces in virtual reality that allow you to interact with both real and game objects;

  • the possibility of porting already existing games to visionOS;

  • work with objects in 2D windows.

It is important to note that app development for visionOS is only available on Macs with Apple Silicon chips. Unity 2022 LTS from Unity Hub must be installed to access the features.

The company has prepared materials that will help beginners to understand the platform and tools. For example, the PolySpatial demo project is available. With its help, you can learn the main capabilities of visionOS. In addition, the company published documentation and started a thread on the developer forum.
