Tech giant Apple has recently announced the rollout of a new software update to support its Vision Pro, enhancing the headset’s functionality and performance. The software update enables the Vision Pro to receive firmware upgrades, ensuring that users have access to the latest features and improvements.
The update includes support for Vision Pro Battery Kit model numbers, which helps identify the required firmware upgrade based on the specific combination of hardware. Media reports have indicated the existence of three battery models to power the Vision Pro. These models are A2781, A2988, and A2697. While the purpose of having multiple models is not entirely clear, experts suggest that they might indicate different battery capacities.
During the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) last month, Apple had emphasized that the battery of the Vision Pro headset is not removable. The headset features a USB-C port for charging and powering. Priced at $3,499, the Vision Pro is set to go on sale in the US early next year.
In addition to the software update, Apple has also made new software tools and technology available for developers. The VisionOS software development kit (SDK) allows developers to create innovative app experiences across various categories, such as productivity, design, gaming, and more, taking advantage of the unique features of Vision Pro and VisionOS.
To aid developers in optimizing 3D content for their VisionOS apps and games, Apple offers the Reality Composer Pro tool, bundled with Xcode. This tool allows developers to preview and compose 3D models, animations, photos, and sounds, ensuring an immersive and visually appealing experience for Vision Pro users.
With these updates and tools, Apple aims to enhance the capabilities of the Vision Pro headset and empower developers to create cutting-edge and captivating experiences for users worldwide. As technology continues to advance, Apple remains at the forefront, catering to the needs of its users and the ever-evolving demands of the market.
