Apple introduced VisionOS 2 for the Vision Pro headset

Following firmware updates for smartphones, tablets and smartwatches, Apple also introduced a new version of the OS for its augmented reality headset. The company told what the device will “learn” after the update, and also released a patch for the current version of the OS.

One of the main innovations was the appearance of a new function in the Photos application. It has learned to convert ordinary photographs into three-dimensional ones with a 3D effect using machine learning algorithms. There is also a SharePlay feature that allows you to quickly share content with other users.

In addition, the gadget received support for higher resolution when working in virtual display mode for Mac computers. According to the developers, the effect is now comparable to using two ultra-wide 4K monitors at once. The device also features an “offline” mode for viewing multimedia files in high quality for traveling on trains.

Finally, the company, together with Canon, announced a new 3D lens for the EOS R7 digital camera. It can be used to create content tailored to the headset. Smaller changes include improved mouse support, new gestures, and a slightly redesigned app icon grid.

– The ability to link closed captions when watching Apple Immersive Video
– Expanded options for personalizing your digital avatar
– More accurate cursor positioning for text entry and fixes for a number of existing problems with keyboard
– Improved reliability of detection and connection to Mac using Mac Virtual Display
– Problems with the operation of Universal Control and Bluetooth have been resolved
