Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed this week that Vision Pro will launch globally in 2024, which also includes mainland China – where its rival Meta can’t sell the headset. However, the timing of the Vision Pro’s international rollout is unclear, so it’s possible it will be announced at WWDC.

Bring new products that support vision pro

According to a recent report from MacRumors, Apple has been internally testing a new Apple Pencil that supports Vision Pro, which would allow it to work with XR drawing apps, such as Freeform and Pixelmator. To boot, the company recently published a patent for such a device, which could make it technically the headset’s first supported controller.
