Job Simulator & Vacation Simulator Coming Soon to Apple Vision Pro
Job Simulator & Vacation Simulator are one of the popular simulation games which can be played in a VR (Virtual Reality) headset. Until now, these both are available on PlayStation VR and Meta Quest.
UploadVR, a Unity website has already confirmed that Job Simulator and Vacation Simulator will be available for the Vision Pro. This is because Unity is hosting a round table for developers who are interested in bringing their games in the visionOS. The description of the event arranges how Owlchemy Studios is uainf Unity to port its games to the Apple Vision Pro.
Join us for a roundtable on February 27, 2024 at 11:30 am ET / 8:30 am PT to learn how cross-industry experts used Unity’s visionOS Support to create games, apps, and spatial experiences for Apple Vision Pro. […] Hear how Owlchemy Studios brought their popular titles, Job Simulator and Vacation Simulator, over in the fully immersive (VR) space,” the event description reads.
Recently, Apple has confirmed that more than 1,000 apps are specially designed for Apple’s VR headset i.e. Vision Pro. But whenever it comes to VR games, there are only a few games that are available for the Apple Vision Pro. Moreover, Vision Pro can run iPad games as well, but if we talk about the experience, then with some games the interaction is not as good as they run in a 2D window.
If more VR games are available in the VisionOS App Store, then it will help Apple to boost interest in the Apple Vision Pro as a game console. Apple has its own RealityKit API. Additionally, the visionOS SDK also supports Unity frameworks, a common engine for building 3D games.
When Apple’s VR headset, Vision Pro was announced at WWDC 2023 in June, then in that event, Apple also highlighted that developers can easily port their existing Unity-created projects to visionOS. Both Apple and Unity have been working together to build and improve these tools.
Unity’s PolySpatial technology was launched last month for Unity Pro, Industry, and Enterprise subscribers. With this new PolySpatial technology, developers can make apps for cross-platform XR (extended reality).

Apple discloses Over 1,000 Dedicated Vision Pro Apps
Recently, Apple announced that there are more than 1,000 apps, that are designed specially designed for Apple Vision Pro. Greg Joswiak, Apple’s Senior VP of Marketing has made this announcement. He has also said that more than 1.5 million are compatible with Vision Pro.
Apple Vision Pro has its dedicated App Store called the VisionOS App Store, in which more than 600 apps are available from day one. Some popular apps such as Netflix, YouTube, and Spotify are not available in Apple Vision Pro’s App Store. But, you can access the content of these apps through Apple’s browser i.e. Safari. Netflix, YouTube, and Spotify said that they won’t develop a dedicated app for the VisionOS App Store.
Firstly, YouTube denied developing a dedicated app for the VisionOS App Store, but later on, Google decided to make a dedicated app for the Apple Vision Pro after the success of the VR headset. People are worried that they may lose money as a popular third-party app is charging $5.
What do you guys think, should Netflix and Spotify also make a dedicated app for the VisionOS App Store as like YouTube? Do let us know in the comment box. Also, tell us whether you like this post or not.
