Unity will provide official support for visionOS to all Unity Pro, Enterprise, and Industry subscribers

Unity, a leading game development platform, has officially announced its support for Apple’s visionOS platform. This move comes after months of collaboration with developers, and it signifies a significant step toward expanding Unity’s capabilities to enhance spatial experiences on Apple Vision Pro. The support is now available to all Unity Pro, Enterprise, and Industry subscribers, empowering developers to leverage Unity’s familiar authoring workflows, XR tools, and cross-platform compatibility for creating immersive spatial applications.

Unity is also providing developers with template scenes and examples through visionOS resource packs

Developers utilizing Unity for Apple Vision Pro can embark on crafting diverse spatial experiences, thanks to the platform’s versatile features. Unity’s support for visionOS enables the creation of three main types of spatial experiences. Firstly, developers can design immersive mixed reality (MR) experiences that seamlessly merge digital content with the real world, capable of running alongside other applications in a shared space.

Secondly, the platform allows for porting existing virtual reality (VR) games or crafting entirely new, fully immersive experiences that replace the user’s environment with customized content. Lastly, Unity enables the deployment of content in user space as a 2D window that offers flexibility in resizing and repositioning.

To initiate spatial application development for Vision Pro using Unity, developers need to download the latest version of Unity 2022 LTS from the Unity Hub and ensure the installation of the visionOS Build Support module. Notably, the ongoing development of visionOS is currently exclusive to Mac computers equipped with Apple’s proprietary chips. Unity aims to further facilitate the learning curve for developers by introducing training courses for Vision Pro space application development in China.

Moreover, Unity is providing developers with template scenes and examples through visionOS resource packs, streamlining the creation process. For those seeking to migrate iOS (or iOS-compatible) applications to visionOS, Unity has introduced a convenient one-click solution. This solution aids developers in seamlessly adjusting existing content to transform it into a 2D windowed application within a shared space, enhancing accessibility and usability.
