Unity has launched a developer program to support its users in creating experiences for the upcoming Apple Vision Pro.
The collaboration aims to empower Unity developers to build apps for Apple Vision Pro, an exciting new platform.
Ralph Hauwert, SVP & GM of Unity Runtime, Editor, and Ecosystems, expresses enthusiasm about expanding the ecosystem of game and app developers.
With Unity's PolySpatial technology combined with Apple's Reality-Kit app rendering, developers can create apps and games that seamlessly blend in with other visionOS apps.
The integration of Unity's PolySpatial technology with Apple's RealityKit application rendering ensures a consistent look and feel for content created in Unity.
Developers can optimize their applications for either passthrough or dynamic foveated rendering on Apple Vision Pro.
Unity also provides tools to implement hand and eye controls seamlessly on the platform.
Popular Unity features like AR Foundation and XR Interaction Toolkit are available on Apple Vision Pro.
Developers can sign up for the beta program on Unity's website and receive email notifications once access is unlocked.
Registration is easy, requiring basic information such as email address and job title.
Developers are also required to utilize the Unity 2022 LTS software, which is currently available for download.
Once the Unity features are accessible, developers will be notified via email.
Apple Vision Pro is slated for release in early 2024 in the US, with more immersive features to come.
