Apple Vision Pro will launch with more than 600 apps and games, designed exclusively for the new headset, Apple has announced.

The Vision Pro, which launches on Friday, Feb. 2, will start with entertainment apps such as Disney+, Max, PGA Tour Vision, NBA, and Red Bull TV. Users will also have access to productivity tools including Box, which allows them to collaborate and securely manage files and content, the brainstorming app MindNode, Microsoft 365 productivity apps, data visualization and project management apps OmniFocus and OmniPlan, as well as apps such as Fantastical and Numerics.

As far as games go, a subscription to Apple Arcade will give users access to 250 games on the Vision Pro, including NBA 2K24 Arcade Edition, Sonic Dream Team, and TMNT Splintered Fate. Titles created specifically for the Vision Pro include Synth Riders, LEGO Builder’s Journey, Super Fruit Ninja, and more.

Finally, users will also get access to apps such as Carrot Weather, a spatial version of the snarky weather app, and The Archive, which will allow them to explore locations and artifacts from the Stark Trek universe, among others.

Of course, it won’t be just 600 apps at launch; Vision Pro users will also have access to more than 1 million iOS and iPadOS apps which are compatible with Vision Pro.

“Apple Vision Pro is unlocking the imaginations of our worldwide developer community, and we’re inspired by the range of spatial experiences they’ve created for this exciting new platform,” Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations, said in a statement.

The Vision Pro becomes available in a little under 24 hours, as visualized on Apple’s website with a handy timer. It will be tough to get the $3,499 headset at launch, as it was effectively sold out soon after pre-orders became available in January.
