Building Vision Pro Apps for Home, Work, & School

Building Vision Pro Apps for Home, Work, & School

Dear Studio Fam,

The more we use Apple Vision Pro (AVP), the more excited we are to build the next generation of spatial computing apps. In this week’s themed edition of Studio Bytes, we juxtapose our own insights into bringing AVP apps to life with the latest AVP headlines. Whether you’re building from scratch or porting an existing iOS app to AVP, read on to hear directly from the Studio team about the best practices you should follow to take the most advantage of the unique attributes of spatial computing. And be sure to check out coverage of the three best use cases for Vision Pro: content, productivity, and education.


By Studio: The Ultimate VisionOS Development Guide

In this post from the Studio team, we dive deep into everything you need to know to get started building in VisionOS. From a development perspective, the Vision Pro is basically an iPad so anyone with experience customizing an iOS experience for Apple tablets will have no difficulty getting up and running. But before the technical aspects are tackled, product owners must put diligence in choosing the most appropriate aspects of their current products to bring into Apple’s spatial universe.

Vision Pro Replaces The TV If You’re Alone (Or Rich)

Of all potential use cases for Vision Pro, Apple has hyped the unparalleled ability to display and produce amazing content the most. In our own experience as AVP users, we’ve found very little reason to ever watch television by ourselves again. AVP won’t replace a big screen for you and your friends on Game Day unless you’re very, very rich. But for the solo viewer, the TV watching experience is unparalleled and hampered only by limited availability of the most popular TV apps.  

Enterprise Investments Begin For Vision Pro’s “Infinite Desktop”

Beyond content consumption, Apple bet big that Vision Pro can drive productivity in the workplace. The evidence of this is obvious in the seamless nature by which any Mac can pass through its display directly into the spatial computing environment. This feature is about as close to “Apple Magic” as we have ever seen, initiated simply by looking at any Mac enabled with MacOS Sonoma. Walmart, Nike, Bloomberg, and SAP have all made investments into AVP, according to Apple CEO Tim Cook, to take advantage of the “infinite desktops” with which users can fill their environment.

By Studio: Migrating Your App To Vision Pro

If you’re a product owner of an existing iOS app, you probably wonder how best to customize your app to take advantage of spatial computing. While any iOS app already configured for use on an iPad will work on AVP in compatibility mode, there are several issues to consider before simply enabling distribution in the VisionOS App Store. In this guide, the Studio team walks through all of the considerations of relaunching for AVP users.

Get An MBA in VisionOS

Apple has touted VisionOS as an exceptional educational platform for everything from workforce development to medical school instruction. Now it can add business school to the list with the announcement by a German “impact university” that its new MBA program will be administered exclusively through Apple Vision Pro. The new program is a part-time MBA program for working professionals “dedicated to integrating sustainability into their industries.”
