As part of its Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple announced its all-new Apple Vision Pro headset, and Disney confirmed that its Disney Plus will be one of the first streaming services available to use on Apple’s new headset.

Apple’s WWDC 2023 event saw a number of announcements made across Apple’s various platforms. For example, FaceTime is coming to Apple TV later this year as part of the tvOS 17 software update. That said, the ‘one more thing’ announcement this year was the unveiling of the company’s new mixed reality headset.

Apple Vision Pro is a headset which will look to blend real and digital worlds together. As is the case with many AR, VR, and MR devices, video is being positioned as one of the many Vision Pro use cases, and Disney Plus will be one of the first streaming services you’ll be able to watch when wearing the headset.

After Tim Cook introduced the new Vision Pro headset, Disney’s Bob Iger made an appearance to showcase some of the possible experiences that a product like Vision Pro might eventually offer.

The examples not only included watching The Mandalorian in your very own movie theater, but also how sports events could become more interactive and engaging as well.

After going through the various possibilities, Iger then closed out the brief presentation by confirming that Disney Plus will be available on Vision Pro from day one.

As to be expected, Apple will most likely have other streaming services ready to go at launch, including its own Apple TV Plus streaming service. However, and considering the size of the Disney Plus subscriber base, it will be a great launch day addition.

For those interested in checking out Disney Plus on Vision Pro, Apple’s new headset is due to become available next year, and will cost you $3,499.
