Tech giant Apple is set to expand the availability of its latest innovation, Apple Vision Pro, to nine new countries, but India doesn't feature among them.

The tech giant has officially announced that pre-orders for the spatial user interface device for the China mainland, Hong Kong, Japan, and Singapore will begin on Friday, June 14, at 6 a.m. local time, with availability on Friday, June 28.

Customers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom can pre-order beginning Friday, June 28, at 5 a.m. local time, with availability beginning Friday, July 12.

The Vision Pro device, launched last year, blends digital content with the physical world to deliver spatial experiences that transform the way people work, consume entertainment, and much more.

"The enthusiasm for Apple Vision Pro has been extraordinary, and we are thrilled to introduce the magic of spatial computing to more customers around the world," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, after its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2024) on Monday (local time).

"We can't wait for more people to see the impossible become possible, whether working and collaborating with an infinite canvas for apps, reliving treasured memories in three dimensions, watching TV shows and movies in a one-of-a-kind personal cinema, or enjoying brand-new spatial experiences that defy imagination," Cook added.

Apple Vision Pro is powered by VisionOS, an operating system with an intuitive spatial user interface through which users navigate with their eyes, hands, and voice.

Through this device that one puts on the face, covering the eyes, users interact with apps by simply looking at them and tapping their fingers together. They can also speak to dictate text, use the virtual keyboard to type, and ask Siri to open and close apps, play media, answer questions, and more.

The App Store now features more than 2,000 apps designed for Apple Vision Pro devices.

With the latest announcement, Apple Vision Pro will be available at all Apple Store locations in China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the U.K., and the U.S., and the Apple Store online, starting at USD 3,499, with 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage capacities.

Apple Vision Pro comes with a Solo Knit Band, a Dual Loop Band, a personalised Light Seal with two Light Seal Cushions, an Apple Vision Pro Cover, Polishing Cloth, Battery, USB-C Charge Cable, and USB-C Power Adapter.
