Claimed to be one of the most exciting new pieces of technology since the iPhone, there’s no denying the massive hype surrounding the Apple Vision Pro; even Tim Cook himself hailed the Vision Pro as the “most advanced consumer electronics device ever created”. So, it’s no wonder that fans outside of the US are eager to get an Apple Vision Pro UK and Canada release date.

With its combination of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), this mixed-reality headset offers a unique and immersive experience for users. It’s still only officially launched in the United States, but recently discovered code suggests that the international market won’t be waiting that much longer. In this article, we’ll explore what we know so far about the release date and availability of Apple Vision Pro in the United Kingdom and Canada.

Apple Vision Pro UK, Canada release date speculation

Apple is reportedly considering the UK and Canada as the first international markets for the Vision Pro, following its initial release in the United States. A safe bet by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says that the device is expected to be available in the UK by the end of 2024, possibly during the second half of the year. On the other hand, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo gambles on an even sooner international launch date coming before the World Wide Developers Conference 2024 (WWDC), which happens in June 2024. So, we’ll have to follow this development closely, as it seems there’s a current period of speculation that lasts from about June to December.

As far as we know, there is no current official release date for the Apple Vision Pro in the UK and Canada, which is leaving buyers clamoring to get one of these US-exclusive Vision Pro headsets to the point of spending up to £6000 (approx $7541). However, these ridiculous reselling prices won’t last forever, as there are numerous sources starting to speculate on the release date of the Vision Pro in the United Kingdom and Canada as being sometime in 2024; perhaps sooner than we anticipate. Hopefully, by this time, perhaps the VisionOS system will have had its initial bugginess smoothed out, and there will be a wider range of apps optimized specifically for Vision Pro. You’ll also be able to natively purchase a set of the Zeiss Optical Inserts prescription lenses, and properly use the Apple TV and Disney Plus apps, as well as other software currently only available in the US.

What countries will get the Vision Pro next?

A nifty spot from MacRumors has pointed us in the direction of which countries will be next in line to get an Apple Vision Pro launch. Sources from the site have spotted a series of code that show 12 new languages will be coming to the Apple Vision Pro keyboard, which currently only supports American English. Apparently, the following languages will shortly be arriving on the Vision Pro’s keyboard:

  • Cantonese, Traditional
  • Chinese, Simplified
  • English (Australia)
  • English (Canada)
  • English (Japan)
  • English (Singapore)
  • English (UK)
  • French (Canada)
  • French (France)
  • German (Germany)
  • Japanese
  • Korean

So, this hints at the possibility of the Apple Vision Pro next launching in Australia, Canada, the UK, France and Germany, Korea, Japan, China, and Singapore. Of course, let’s not discount Taiwan and Hong Kong as potential candidates. If anything, these new details make a launch around the WWDC in June seem even more plausible.

What are the features and functionality of the Vision Pro?

The Vision Pro is a mixed-reality headset that allows users to control apps using their eyes, hands, and voice. It can simulate virtual environments, such as an enormous cinema screen, and overlay computer elements onto the real world through AR. With over 600 purpose-built apps and compatibility with existing iOS and iPad OS apps, the Vision Pro offers a wide range of possibilities.

In terms of what you actually get in the box, the Vision Pro comes with the battery and USB-C charging cable itself, as well as a solo knit band and a dual loop band, a light seal and two light seal cushions, a cover for the front of the device, and a polishing cloth.

Apple Vision Pro UK and Canada price prediction

Although the official costs are yet to be confirmed, it’s possible to estimate that based on a direct conversion of the US MSRP of $3,500, the UK might have the Vision Pro priced around £2785 ($1 USD = £0.79 GBP), and possibly around $4732 ($1 USD = $1.35 CAD) in Canada for the base 256GB model. However, this is not taking into account the additional cost of the $99 for the Zeiss Optical Inserts, or the $199 for the official Apple carry case.

Considering Apple’s pricing strategy for its products, it is expected that the Vision Pro will be priced similarly in these regions, and not aiming to add too much more onto its already expensive price point. It’s worth noting that for the Apple MacBook Air M3 is $1,299 in the US and £1,299 in the UK, so it’s possible we could be looking at direct dollar-to-pound pricing.

When is the Apple Vision Pro available in the UK?

Apple has not yet confirmed when the Vision Pro will be officially available in the UK, but current speculations estimate that it will probably reach the international audience at some point before the end of 2024. While there are technically workarounds, including buying the headset on eBay or going to the US to get one, this isn’t a recommended process as not only will it be extortionately expensive, you won’t be able to get Apple’s personalized in-store set-up process.

When will Apple Vision Pro be available in Canada?

Similar to the United Kingdom, Apple has not provided an official release date for the Vision Pro in Canada. However, it is highly likely that the device will be available in Canada by the end of 2024, alongside its launch in the UK. Apple’s decision to expand to these international markets demonstrates its commitment to making the Vision Pro accessible to a wider audience.

When was the Apple Vision Pro released in the United States?

As Apple’s native market, the United States was the first country to receive the Apple Vision Pro. Pre-orders started on 19th January, and the device was officially launched on February 02, 2024.

Are there any UK alternatives to the Apple Vision Pro?

Although Apple Vision Pro does not have a direct competitor in the market, there are alternatives available. One such competitor is Meta Quest 3, a mixed-reality VR headset offered by Meta (Facebook’s owner). While the Meta Quest 3 is primarily focused on gaming and has a more affordable price point, the Vision Pro offers advanced technology and the potential for a wide range of applications, including acting as a full desktop computer.

Other competitors in the VR market include Sony PlayStation VR and the line of Vive VR headsets from HTC. These alternatives cater to different user preferences and use cases, ranging from gaming to business and enterprise applications.


The release of Apple Vision Pro in the United Kingdom and Canada is highly anticipated, as with its innovative features and immersive capabilities, the Vision Pro has the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with technology. As Apple’s first venture into the VR and AR headset market, the Vision Pro represents a significant milestone in the company’s product lineup.

So, while the exact release dates and pricing for these regions are yet to be confirmed, it’s overall expected that the Vision Pro will be available by the end of 2024. The UK and Canada might be next in line to get an Apple Vision Pro launch outside the US, but it’s hoped that this will be swiftly followed by its release in Asia, Australia, and other European countries such as France and Germany, and it’s rumored that Apple engineers currently working to localize the device for these countries.
