Following the announcement of Vision Pro during WWDC, Apple has fulfilled its promise to provide developers with comprehensive tools. In a recent press release, Apple revealed that developer resources for Vision Pro are now accessible, beginning with the introduction of the visionOS SDK.
Starting today, Apple’s global community of developers will be able to create an entirely new class of spatial computing apps that take full advantage of the infinite canvas in Vision Pro and seamlessly blend digital content with the physical world to enable extraordinary new experiences.
With the visionOS SDK, developers can utilize the powerful and unique capabilities of Vision Pro and visionOS to design brand-new app experiences across a variety of categories including productivity, design, gaming, and more.
According to Apple, developers can utilize the visionOS SDK to engage with their applications in the new visionOS simulator. The company explains that by employing familiar foundational frameworks like Xcode, SwiftUI, RealityKit, ARKit, and TestFlight, developers can create novel experiences that leverage the groundbreaking features of Apple Vision Pro.
Apple further states that it plans to establish developer labs in several locations, including Cupertino, London, Munich, Shanghai, Singapore, and Tokyo, next month. These labs will offer developers the opportunity to personally test their apps using Vision Pro and receive support from Apple engineers who will be present on-site.
Furthermore, Apple will commence accepting applications from developers next month who are interested in receiving a Vision Pro developer kit. This hardware kit enables developers to swiftly build, iterate, and test directly on Apple Vision Pro.
Apple Developer Program members can access the visionOS SDK, updated Xcode, Simulator, and Reality Composer Pro through Apple’s website.
