Starting today, some developers can use the popular software Unity to make apps and games for Apple’s upcoming Vision Pro headset.

A partnership between Unity and Apple was first announced during Apple’s WWDC 2023 keynote last month, in the same segment the Vision Pro and visionOS were introduced.
