The recently concluded WWDC 2023 is the talk of the town now and mainly because of Apple’s foray into the AR headset niche with the Vision Pro. Apple’s $3,499 AR headset is an innovation breakthrough with impressive features like EyeSight, Spatial Computing, and more. However, one of the most exciting announcements and demonstrations of Vision Pro’s capabilities came from Disney CEO Bob Iger.
The top executive announced that Vision Pro will launch with the Disney+ streaming service on the launch day. He also demonstrated how it would change how everyone enjoys multimedia content and sports viewing. Read ahead to know all details of the Disney+ announcement at the WWDC 2023.
Apple Vision Pro Will Come with Disney+ Streaming Service
Apple announced that the Vision Pro would give its users a stellar cinematic streaming experience for Apple TV content. Users can also play their favourite Apple Arcade games on as big a screen as they want with their favourite controller. However, the Disney partnership takes the cake as the Walt Disney Company is the world leader in the entertainment industry. Bob Iger took the stage to announce the collaboration and demonstrate how Vision Pro will change the streaming experience from sports to movies.
Disney+ streaming service owns content across various platforms – Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. Iger revealed that Vision Pro users can enjoy immersive content on these platforms with AR-based environments matching the movie being watched and more. Iger announced that the Walt Disney Company would be developing immersive entertainment experiences for Vision Pro, including new ways of watching sports.
During Iger’s announcement, there was a sneak peek of the sports viewing experience on ESPN. The preview showed that the new Apple Vision Pro headset would show five different game streams at the same time. Users can use spatial computing gestures to toggle between them quickly. In case users focus on just one match, they can check multiple angles of the same game, including court-side views, detailed player stats, and other information about their favourite teams and league. Apple Vision Pro will also offer in-depth replays of favourite moments from a game.
At this point, it’s yet to be known how much of this experience will be available on the launch day of Vision Pro next year. However, the future of streaming looks promising for Apple Vision Pro buyers.
