Apple recently released the VisionOS SDK that you can test with Xcode on Mac. The SDK reveals interesting and new details about the platform and how users will be able to use certain features of VisionOS on different occasions. According to the latest, Apple's Vision Pro will have a travel mode for an enhanced viewing experience along with a visual search mode capable of objects, text and more.
Apple's Vision Pro comes with a travel mode with different assumptions and the useful visual search to detect objects and text
Starting with visual search, the Vision Pro headset will be able to detect items and text around them. Furthermore, the headset will display information related to a specific item and give you the ability to interact with text, allowing you to copy printed text and paste it into apps. In addition, you will also have the option to translate 17 different languages.
Aside from Visual Search, Vision Pro will also feature an unannounced travel mode. The mode is specifically designed for travel, keeping in mind the atmosphere or environment you interact with. For example, you will get a dedicated mode in the limited space of an airplane cabin. Since you have limited space in the cabin, VisionOS will offer a wide variety of options for you to choose from. In order to access the mode, there are some prerequisites you must follow. The travel mode will offer functionality based on limited space (via MacRumors ).
The text strings were found in VisionOS beta 1, which also shows that while travel mode is turned on, some awareness features will be turned off. This will turn off some sensors that allow consciousness functions to work. In addition, the string text indicates that your representation will also be turned off. If you have any kind of avatars, they will not be available. Furthermore, eye tracking will also be compromised due to your adjusted position based on your seating position. Vision Pro will also ask you to stay still when travel mode is activated.
Please note that VisionOS is in its early beta phase and the device is expected to go on sale early next year. What this means is that developers have a few months to get used to the new SDK and beta to perfect their apps for the headset.
