Apple Vision Pro Expanding to 9 Countries, Including China, Soon

Apple Vision Pro Expanding to 9 Countries, Including China, Soon

Apple introduced the Vision Pro spatial computing device exclusively in the United States initially to manage supply chain challenges and streamline sales procedures. A current constraint of the Vision Pro headset is its sole support for the English language, including its virtual keyboard and autocorrect features, which are limited to English (US).

Apple's Global Expansion Plans

Apple might be gearing up for a broader release beyond the US, as hinted by plans for a worldwide launch or introduction in select countries. The tech giant has confirmed intentions to extend sales to additional countries by the conclusion of 2024.

Multilingual Support

Recent discoveries within the visionOS code indicate upcoming virtual keyboard support for 12 more languages, including Cantonese, Traditional Chinese, and various versions of English, French, German, Japanese, and Korean. This move suggests a potential global expansion of the Vision Pro into countries like China, Australia, Canada, Japan, Singapore, the UK, France, Germany, and South Korea.

Enhancements and Expectations

The Vision Pro headset features a predominantly metal (aluminum) and laminated glass exterior, equipped with cameras, sensors like LIDAR for precise environment mapping. Despite its revolutionary interaction capabilities with applications, the platform currently lacks a wide range of available apps. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo anticipates that the forthcoming global expansion before WWDC 2024 aims to encourage more developers to enhance the visionOS platform with upgraded functionalities derived from iOS and iPadOS apps.
