Rumor: Apple is going to equip Vision Pro with Apple Intelligence

Apple is going to bring Apple Intelligence to even more devices.

Originally, Apple’s AI solution was meant for the Mac, iPhone and iPad. According to insiders, Apple Intelligence will also appear on the Apple Vision Pro headset.

“I’m told that Apple is actively working on bringing the features to the device, but it won’t happen this year,” says Mark Gurman, Bloomberg reporter and Apple expert, in his weekly news update.

He can’t say for certain what features Apple will bring to its Vision Pro. His money is on features like writing tools, an OpenAI chatbot and the new Siri: that would make a lot of sense for a headset like the Vision Pro.

Gurman states that Apple has already begun updating the Vision Pro’s operating system, named visionOS 3. This iteration should roll out sometime next year.

The biggest challenge for Apple’s engineers is not to integrate Apple Intelligence on the Vision Pro, but rather to deliver a decent user experience in the mixed-reality environment.

Apple Vision Pro and Apple Intelligence in a nutshell

The Apple Vision Pro is a mixed-reality headset that was announced in June 2023. Apple had promoted the device as a ‘spatial computer’ where digital media is integrated with the real world around us. By using physical inputs like motion gestures and eye tracking, users operate the headset.

The Vision Pro runs on visionOS, an operating system that is derived from iPadOS.

The first headsets were available in February 2024 in the United States, with more countries to follow in July.

Apple Intelligence is Apple’s brand name for artificial intelligence and was announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) last month. Apple Intelligence performs most tasks on a user’s device. For the harder tasks Apple uses cloud servers, which are designed to keep users’ privacy and end-to-end encryption in mind.

Apple Intelligence is part of iOS 18, which will officially launch later this year. All Macs and iPads with an M-series processor will support Apple Intelligence. If you’re an iPhone user, you will have to own an iPhone 15 Pro (Max) or newer.
