Apple Vision Pro

Apple Vision Pro is available to preorder starting today, i.e., January 19th. Apple Vision Pro is going to be available in US Apple stores starting February 2. With only a few weeks left before launch, Netflix, YouTube have already opted out of building a native app for the Apple Vision Pro.

Now, according to the Verge, news is coming in that YouTube is also not going to create a standalone app for the Apple Vision Pro, and its iPad app is also not going to support Apple’s mixed reality headset. As a spokesperson from Youtube told the Verge, “YouTube users will be able to use YouTube in Safari on the Vision Pro.” According to Bloomberg, It is also expected that Spotify is not going to have a native app, and its iPad app is also not going to support Apple Vision Pro, but Spotify has not made an official announcement regarding this.

The Vision Pro is compatible with over a million iPhone and iPad apps from the App Store. But it gave an option to the developers to opt out of this support. Netflix has officially announced that the iPad app will not support the Vision Pro. Netflix told Bloomberg, “Our members will be able to enjoy Netflix on the web browser on the Vision Pro, similar to how our members can enjoy Netflix on Macs.” With news of YouTube and Spotify also opting out of support, it can have a negative impact on the sales of the Apple Vision Pro.

How can users access YouTube and Netflix on Apple Vision Pro?

Users will still be able to access YouTube and Netflix via the Safari browser. Although this makes it possible to use these streaming platforms, it will surely decrease the user experience of native apps. As users won’t be able to do things like download content and view it offline, they won’t get the specialized features that come along with a standalone app. It will make the streaming process difficult.

Entertainment and Streaming Services available on Apple Vision Pro

With Netflix and Youtube not having a native app for the Vision Pro, users can still stream movies and TV shows from Apple TV+ and other streaming services that are available on the Vision Pro without using the Safari Browser. The Apple Vision Pro is going to have support for multiple streaming and entertainment apps like Disney+, NBA, MLB, Amazon Prime Video, Max, ESPN Paramount Plus, Pluto TV, Peacock, Red Bull TV, IMAX, and others.

Entertainment Services on Apple Vision Pro


With the Vision Pro priced at $3,499, Apple does not want its customers to have a bad experience owning the product. Users are highly excited for the Apple Vision Pro, as it is Apple’s major product launch after a decade. Apple is doing everything, which includes providing demos of features, demos of how to use the product, and face scans so that users can find a perfect fit and get familiar with the product.

YouTube, Spotify, and Netflix are the most popular audio and video streaming platforms. The news about these platforms not building a standalone app and even not allowing their iPad app to support the Apple Vision Pro can negatively impact sales of Apple’s first ever mixed reality headset.
