Apple has always been a trendsetter and is consistently surprising consumers with innovative products, but its most recent endeavor – the Vision Pro headset – although being no exception, will not be able to accept some of the most used apps on earth: Netflix, YouTube, and Spotify.

This supremely touted diversion gadget, with a mammoth price tag of $ 3,500, is stirring up mixed reactions because of the absence of three significant entertainment platforms. This article tells you everything you need to know about it.

What Happened?

Upon the announcement of Vision Pro, Netflix, a major player in the domain of digital entertainment, made it clear that it had no immediate plans to develop an app compatible with the device.

Apple users can, however, access Netflix through the Vision Pro's web browser, a workaround that finds parallels with the company's approach towards Mac users.

Spotify and YouTube are also absent on Vision Pro for now. Spotify's absence might not be too shocking to many, given its history of conflicts with Apple over app store policies. YouTube, on the other hand, says almost the same as Netflix: while content will be accessible via the Vision Pro's web browser, there won't be a dedicated app on the headset.

So What's On The Apple Vision Pro Now?

Despite the lack of the prominent apps, which are key components of most users' digital entertainment consumption, the Vision Pro still hosts a plethora of streaming apps, such as the ones listed below.

  • Disney+
  • ESPN+Max
  • Discovery+
  • Amazon Prime Video
  • Paramount+
  • Peacock
  • Pluto TV
  • Tubi
  • Fubo
  • Crunchyroll
  • TikTok
  • NBA
  • MLB
  • PGA Tour

Additionally, users will have the option to purchase or rent over 150 3D-immersive movies, such as "Avatar: The Way of Water," "Dune," "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse," "The Super Mario Bros. Movie," "Avengers: Endgame," "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," "Elemental," and "Encanto."

Where To Buy The Vision Pro?

The gadget that inserts Apple into the competitive universe of VR and AR is already available in all Apple Store locations across the U.S., as well as on the online Apple Store.

Even being up against products like Meta's more affordable Quest 3 device, priced at $ 500, the Vision Pro marks Apple's most substantial product launch since the 2015 Apple Watch.
