Apple Vision Pro enthusiasts in India will have to wait as the U.S. based company on Monday disclosed new regions where the virtual reality headset would be available next. It includes mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan, and Singapore, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom.

There was no confirmation from Apple on Vision Pro’s India arrival.

“The enthusiasm for Apple Vision Pro has been extraordinary, and we are thrilled to introduce the magic of spatial computing to more customers around the world,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO.

Apple also announced the new visionOS 2 update which will be available as a free software update this fall.

With it, Apple Vision Pro users will gain access to spatial computing, including a new way to transform photos into 3D memories. It will add more depth to photos. Spatial photos will also work on Panorama.

The new visionOS 2 will add hand gestures to easily access the Home View and important information at a glance.

Vision Pro will now work on trains and planes as well.

There will be new capabilities for Mac Virtual Display, Travel Mode, and Guest User as well. Enhancements will be available to Mindfulness, Safari, and the Apple TV app.

Apple is working with developers for new APIs meant for enterprise use, and the surgical field to expand Vision Pro usage.

App Store now features more than 2,000 apps designed for Apple Vision Pro. There are more than 1.5 million compatible iOS and iPadOS apps, said Apple.
