The upcoming Apple Vision Pro virtual reality/augmented reality (VR/AR) headset will have a unique feature called ‘Travel Mode’ specifically designed for airplane use. This discovery was made by MacRumors through the visionOS development kit (SDK) recently released.
Various text strings found in the SDK mention Travel Mode, such as “Are you on an airplane?”, “If you’re on an airplane, you’ll need to keep Travel Mode on to continue using your Apple Vision Pro,” and “Remain Stationary in Travel Mode.”
Travel Mode appears to restrict user input and requires complete stillness. Additionally, the headset is expected to alter the appearance of windows in front of the user, possibly by having them float within the seat in front while on a plane (specific details are unclear).
Further examination of the SDK suggests that the Vision Pro may limit or cease its functionality when the user is moving too fast. The presence of the alert message “Moving at an Unsafe Speed” implies that using the headset while driving or on a bike is unsafe. There is also mention of text prompts telling the wearer to “Move Back” when they are too close to an object.
In related news, it has been reported that the Vision Pro will include yet-to-be-revealed features like full-body tracking and fitness capabilities.
The release of Apple’s Vision Pro is scheduled for early 2024 in the United States. Its availability in Canada remains uncertain.
