When Is Apple Vision Pro Coming Out in the UK and Elsewhere?

Now that Apple's Vision Pro spatial computing headset has launched in the United States, when will it become available to buy in other countries? Here's what we know.

Officially, Apple has said that following the U.S. launch of Apple Vision Pro on February 2, 2024, the device will be coming to more countries later in the year, though the company has so far stopped short of officially revealing which countries and when exactly.

Fortunately, that's not the final word on the subject. According to insider sources at Apple cited by well-connected Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, the launch of Vision Pro in other countries around the world will not "actually be that much later" than its release in the United States.

Apple is discussing the United Kingdom and Canada as two of the first international markets to get the mixed reality headset by the end of 2024, according to Gurman.

Soon after, Apple is said to be looking at bringing the Vision Pro to the rest of Europe as well as Asia, with Apple engineers working to localize the device for France, Germany, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, and Korea.

More recently, code discovered by MacRumors suggests Apple will soon add 12 new languages to the virtual keyboard on the Vision Pro. Right now, the device's virtual keyboard only supports English (US), which makes sense given that it is only available in the United States.

To bring the Vision Pro to new countries, Apple needs to add support for additional languages. The code indicates the following languages will be added:

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

It's likely that these language additions hint at the countries where Apple will launch the Vision Pro next, including Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and the UK. Hong Kong and Taiwan are also potential candidates.

International Launch in First Half of 2024?

During a recent tour of China, Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed that the Vision Pro headset will go on sale in China later this year. It was the first explicit confirmation of a specific country other than the United States that the Vision Pro will launch in 2024.

Separately, well-regarded Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple will likely launch its Vision Pro headset outside the United States before Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in June 2024. Kuo bases his prediction on information that suggests Apple plans to share new details about visionOS – the device's operating system – with developers around the globe at its upcoming developers conference.

Kuo explained that Apple's reasoning for keeping sales of the Vision Pro exclusive to the United States at first is due to limited supply, a wish to ensure that the sales process goes smoothly before expanding it, and to provide time to modify its software to be suitable for other countries. Once these issues have been resolved, Kuo believes the Vision Pro will go on sale in more countries.

Apple does not anticipate partnering with third-party resellers to offer the Vision Pro until at least 2025, due to the complex supply chain logistics and staff training involved in handling the device and advising customers, according to Gurman.

This is a tricky one, as I cannot see many Europeans running to shell out 3K+€ for a device that so far has not generated much, if any, positive buzz.

Apple should hold off until better and much cheaper Gen 2 to go world wide.
Why? It's a great device now and obviously people will buy it. I love mine. Use it every day.

Prices in UK/EU could be scary...
No could about it…
The prices will be scary.

I am just an ordinary Brit going about his every day business earning a living, so are 99% of my family and friends… Spending £4,000 is a huge expense.
This (UK) economy is not doing well.

No idea who the buyers for this £4,000+ (single user!) AVP will be.

There are some exceptionally rich people, of course, but… are they the enthusiasts?

At my age, getting a tooth implant is more where my £4,000 will be going. ?
