Apple’s rumored headset to offer VR workouts and sports features, according to latest reports
One exciting feature mentioned in the report is the headset’s ability to run Apple Fitness+ workouts in VR, allowing users to experience a virtual workout that feels like they’re in the same space as their instructor. The headset will also reportedly support immersive sports viewing, using Apple’s streaming rights for Major League Soccer and Major League Baseball, as well as its 2020 purchase of VR sports startup NextVR. Users can even watch videos in virtual environments like a desert or the sky with the Apple TV app.
But the headset isn’t just for fun and games; it will also prioritize productivity, similar to the Meta Quest Pro. The platform will support Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iMovie, and GarageBand, as well as offering communication and remote collaboration features that let users see full-body 3D avatars of people they’re talking with in FaceTime calls. Gaming will also be a major focus, with the report stating that Apple has shifted its attention to gaming after initially neglecting the space.
