The Apple Vision Pro will launch with more than 150 3D films from Disney, Max and others

When Apple’s mixed-reality Apple Vision Pro arrives on sale on February 2, it will offer a range of entertainment options that the company has revealed. More than 150 3D movies, immersive TV shows and movies, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video streaming services, and a Travel Mode function will all be available when the headset launches.

Disney+, ESPN, MLB, PGA Tour, Max, Discovery+, Amazon Prime Video, Paramount+, Peacock, Pluto TV, Tubi, Fubo, Crunchyroll, Red Bull TV, IMAX, TikTok, and MUBI are just a few of the places where customers may download and stream content using the Vision Pro. Moreover, users of Safari and other browsers can watch online and streaming video.

In addition to other 3D films, users will be able to watch “Avatar: The Way of Water,” “Dune,” “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” and “The Super Mario Bros.” Users who own or purchase films with a 3D edition will be able to view that version on Apple Vision Pro at no additional cost. Users can access 3D versions of qualifying films on the Apple TV app. Apple claims that a number of streaming services, such as Disney+, will make their recently released and well-liked films available in 3D on Vision Pro. At a later time, other titles—including ones that are unique to Disney+ subscribers—will be revealed.

Apple Immersive Video, a brand-new entertainment format with 180-degree 3D 8K recordings made with Spatial Audio, will also be included with the headset. At launch, Apple is providing an carefully selected selection of immersive TV shows and films on the Vision Pro. The immersive television shows and films include “Wild Life,” which brings viewers up close and personal with unusual creatures, and “Adventure,” which follows trailblazing athletes as they take on challenges. “Alicia Keys: Rehearsal Room” and “Prehistoric Planet Immersive” are further features in the set.

The Vision Pro will come pre-installed with two features: “Guest Users,” which enables users to share particular apps and experiences with others, and “Travel Mode,” which stabilises images for usage on aeroplanes.

“Apple Vision Pro is the ultimate entertainment device,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, in a press release. “Users can turn any place into the best seat in the house, enjoy personal concerts and adventures with Apple Immersive Video, interact with lifelike prehistoric creatures in Encounter Dinosaurs, and even land on the surface of the moon using Environments. It’s unlike anything users have ever seen before and we can’t wait for them to experience it for themselves.”

Dolby Vision, wide colour, high dynamic range, and ultra-high resolution micro-OLED panels with a total of 23 million pixels are all included in the headset. Two hours of general use and up to 2.5 hours of video playback are included with the Vision Pro. The headset’s external battery must be charged with a USB-C charging connection in order to be used for the entire day.

The $3,500 headset is available for preorder starting on January 19 at 5 a.m. PT. The “more than 1 million” compatible iOS and iPadOS apps in the new Vision Pro App Store, together with experiences created especially for the headset, will be available at launch.
