UPDATE: Added the list of all movies, along with the platform on which they are available.
In addition to the over one million compatible iPad applications, there exists a total of
600 1000 applications and games that are specifically designed to leverage the potent capabilities of Apple Vision Pro.
Users can navigate with their eyes, hands, and voice on the infinite canvas of Vision Pro. The device features ultra-high-resolution displays that deliver more pixels than a 4K TV for each eye. Spatial experiences on Vision Pro can transform any room into a personal theater for sports, TV shows, and films; unlock new ways to collaborate, create, and view digital content; and transport users to stunning gameplay environments and exciting new places.
More than 200 movies in 3D!
Only a few weeks ago, Apple announced that there will be available 150 movies on their iTunes Store / AppleTV+ catalog. The number has now increased to 200 for launch day! And that is without considering the dozens of 3D movies available from Disney+.
The Vision Pro is finally the long-awaited new generation device for watching 3D movies, both in hardware and content availability. This product costs more than a traditional 3DTV, but it’s cheaper than our glasses-free 3DTV, which is better for multiple people watching at once.
Sports fans will love the viewing experience on Vision Pro, with apps like PGA TOUR Vision, which uses real-time shot tracking layered on top of 3D models of real golf courses alongside key stats — leaderboards, scorecards, schedules, etc. — to bring the tour to life in a user’s space.
Red Bull TV displays 3D maps of races paired with high-quality video and immersive environments.
NBA and MLS Season Pass also have their App, but no word yet about 3D capabilities.
There are compatible apps from top cable services — including Charter Spectrum, Comcast Xfinity, Cox Contour, Sling TV, and Verizon Fios — and sports broadcasters — including ESPN, CBS, Paramount+, NBC, NBC Sports, Peacock, FOX Sports, and the UFC.
Alongside Disney+, IMAX delivers an awe-inspiring viewing experience for 2d and 3D content, featuring popular documentaries such as Deep Sky in IMAX’s expanded aspect ratio.
Max features hit movies and series, fresh originals, family favorites, breaking news, and live sports, with select titles available in 4K and Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos. The Max App will show the Iron Throne Room environment while watching their content, but they don’t have 3D movies or series in their catalog.
Apple Immersive Video, puts viewers right inside the action with 180-degree, 8K 3D recordings captured with Spatial Audio. On Apple Music, listeners can download and stream well over 100 million songs ad-free with Spatial Audio featuring Dolby Atmos and Lossless Audio with ultra-low latency using AirPods Pro (2nd generation) with USB-C.
While native apps deliver experiences that take full advantage of the capabilities of spatial computing, Apple Vision Pro users can also enjoy their favorite video and music streaming services in Safari, including the ability to open multiple windows, go full screen, listen with Spatial Audio, and launch an Environment for an entertainment experience unlike any other. YouTube and Netflix are better than ever, even without having a dedicated App.
Some immersive content includes:
– Alicia Keys: Rehearsal Room offers a rare glimpse into the Grammy winner’s creative process with this intimate rehearsal session featuring renditions of her hits “No One,” “If I Ain’t Got You,” and “You Don’t Know My Name.” Users can also access these performances as a special EP exclusively on Apple Music when it debuts.

The integrated keyboard is a 2d layer, but remember you can use a “3D” 😉 real Bluetooth keyboard.
We expect there is a question of time that more Apps will use more 3D interfaces along the time, and they will surpass the excellent HoloLens ecosystem in a few years or months.

One more thing
To end, we would like to look forward, and see what other things apart from media this device could bring.
Any user can enjoy Spatial Video and Images captured not only on the Vision Pro itself, but also on their iPhone (tutorial for capturing Spatial Video on iPhone 15 Pro / Max, soon for other iPhone models). Watching your memories in 3D could be the killer App for Vision Pro, but we think there’s a better feature, and is not related to virtual 3D images, but it is related to your real physical 3D objects around you.
So, what’s the killer App for Vision Pro? It is already preinstalled there, unnoticed for most of the people, the Shortcuts App allows, as in the iPhone, not only to make automations, but to control your Home-enabled devices. That means, you can control your home by looking and snapping your fingers, Thanos-style! Shortcuts unleash all it’s potential, and it becomes the ultimate way to remote control anything at home. The best remote is not having to use a remote, just looking and snapping.
With new apps launching all the time on the App Store, Apple Vision Pro users will be able to explore new spatial experiences that continue to excite. And now the device is on the market, more developers can develop new experiences for them easier than with a simulator on the SDK.
