The Apple Vision Pro is not just any other headset, it's a gateway to a whole new level of film experience. Before immersing yourself in the world of 3D content, it's crucial to set up your device correctly.

Apple offers comprehensive support through its website and in-store experts, ensuring you get the most out of your Apple Vision Pro.

The primary source for finding 3D movies that are compatible with the Apple Vision Pro is through the Apple TV app. The app is designed to integrate seamlessly with Apple's ecosystem, providing a curated list of content available in 3D.

Users can browse a dedicated section for 3D movies on the Apple TV media store. This section above can be viewed on iPad, iPhone, and Mac -- which is good, considering that buying content directly on Apple Vision Pro is not as convenient as it is on a touch interface.

Apple updates the section regularly to include new releases and timeless classics.

  4. To switch between 2D and 3D views, press the Back button to go back to the movie details and then hit the Play button again to adjust your view.



For consumers, the Apple Vision Pro offers several benefits. First, it introduces a new way to experience movies and television, transforming passive viewing into an interactive event.

It caters to the needs of different users, from those seeking entertainment to professionals looking for dynamic ways to present content. Its compatibility with existing Apple Services ensures a seamless integration into the ecosystem, enhancing user convenience.

    A better tutorial might be instructions on how to rip 3D BluRay discs into a format that can be streamed to the Apple Vision Pro from a Mac (or other) media server.

    Many people have 3D BluRays that aren't on any streaming service. For example: House of Wax [1953]. GOG [1954].

    Is there software that allows that yet? I was thinking you’d need something like Rad.live’s player, whIch is what I use to side load 3D content on my PSVR, but don’t think that’s available for AVP yet. Is there a native way to do this?

    House of Wax was in 3D at launch. Why did they get rid of it? It was on my list of movies to watch sometime.

    Another problem they've have is if you got the movie into your library from Movies Anywhere, you don't get the 3D version, even if you got the movies anywhere version from a 3D Blu Ray and you can't buy it again directly to get the 3D version. There is a complicated workaround of gifting it to yourself using an old version if iTunes for windows. I can't believe they have totally ignored this issue. It's so frustrating to see a movie in the list of 3D movies, but have no way to view it in 3D.

    One of several examples of Apple dropping the ball driving Vision Pro adoption. Another glaring example is the complete lack of immersive sports other than the one soccer trailer. Live immersive sports would sell Vision Pros.
