Following its divisive launch in the US, the Apple Vision Pro is seemingly gearing up to release in a few other countries. Some nations it could launch in soon include Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and the UK since Apple plans to add support for these countries’ respective languages in an upcoming update.

That’s according to MacRumors, who apparently spotted Apple’s code preparing to introduce these languages to the mixed reality headset. Unfortunately, an exact Apple Vision Pro global release date has yet to be revealed, though you may not have to wait long before it does. According to a previous blog post from tech analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will reportedly launch the Vision Pro outside the US market before the Worldwide Developers Conference in June. This means the vaunted Silicon Valley-based company may already be preparing for an announcement sooner rather than later.

Will the Apple Vision Pro be more of a hit outside the US?

Despite its ingenuity, the Vision Pro’s exorbitant price tag may continue to make it an impractical piece of futuristic tech for most casual users. Unless you have $3500 (or your regional equivalent) lying around, this 3D spatial computer will likely see the same trends outside the US as it did within. Plus, with several alternatives already in the market, like the Xreal Air 2 Ultra, consumers would undoubtedly opt for the more affordable and stylish option instead of the headpiece that makes you look like a character out of Ready Player One.

Of course, these other mixed reality options can’t quite compare to the Vision Pro yet. However, with people continuing to prefer more practical and less wieldy pieces, the Vision Pro’s top-class features and specs may not matter much in the long run.
