Apple Vision Pro to expand its availability to more countries after WWDC, new report suggests
Apple's annual developer conference, WWDC, is now less than a month away. Now, reputable Apple analyst Mark Gurman says that Cupertino is preparing to launch the Vision Pro in other countries, and this will most likely happen after the conference.

Vision Pro availability to expand after WWDC

Earlier, Tim Cook said that the Vision Pro will launch in China in 2024. On top of that, Apple has been recruiting Briefing Experience Specialists in Australia and Japan, and the role includes presenting the Vision Pro to customers.

On top of that, reportedly now Apple has begun overseas staff to Cupertino to train them on the headset. This pretty much means that sales could start soon. Staff has been brought to Cupertino from Australia, China, Singapore, South Korea, Japan, France, and Germany, and these are the countries we expect to soon start offering Vision Pro availability.

So far, we're not seeing Canada and the UK listed, and this is somewhat strange. Of course, it's possible that the list is incomplete. Also, visionOS code was found to include references to both countries.

The Vision Pro cost $3,499 at launch in the US and has since been discounted by up to $200 here and there. We expect international pricing to remain in line with Apple's strategy.

It's great news that Apple is finally working on bringing the Vision Pro to the rest of the world. Although I wish it could include even more countries on the list, probably for such a new product a step-by-step rollout makes more sense. I'm curious how these other countries will influence Vision Pro's sales, given how those are rumored to already be underwhelming or at least, not as good as Apple once had probably hoped.
