You can still watch videos via your browser on the Vision Pro, but this new app promises a different experience. The app also supports the Apple Vision Pro's Shared Space feature, which means you will now be able to watch TikTok videos while working on other apps as well. Moreover, one noticeable alteration is the relocation of the navigation bar, typically positioned on the right side, to the left in the brand-new "reimagined" version of the app.


Previously, the company's product lead, Ahmad Zahran hinted at the arrival of the platform on Vision Pro. "Experience your For You feed in an entirely new way through this immersive content view," said TikTok, in a post on X.

At present, Apple Vision Pro already has more than 1,000 apps specifically designed for this new device. At the time of the launch, the headset had 600-plus apps designed for the headset, including Slack, Zoom, Microsoft 365 apps, and Disney +.

According to the tech giant, Vision Pro can run more than 1.5 million compatible iOS and iPad apps, spatial apps built for the headset. Moreover, Individuals who have previously experienced the app on their device have asserted that it surpasses the app on the phone, stating that one can effortlessly become engrossed in watching videos, akin to their experiences on the iPhone.

However, the current version of the application doesn't support direct posting from the device. Nevertheless, this limitation is anticipated to be rectified with a single software update.

The debut of Apple's groundbreaking product has made significant waves in the tech industry, garnering considerable success. The company's venture into the virtual space proved fruitful, evidenced by the immediate sell-out of products following the commencement of pre-orders on January 19, 2024.

The Cupertino giant reportedly achieved sales of 200,000 units of the Vision Pro since its availability. The Vision Pro boasts a starting price of $3,499, with add-ons making it a maximum of $4,000.

Support from major video streaming platforms has been varied. While Disney emerged as a prominent partner, extensively featured during Apple's 2023 Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC23) as part of the Vision Pro's unveiling, platforms like Netflix and YouTube have refrained from enabling their iPad versions to operate on the device, instead encouraging users to access videos via the Safari browser.

However, with the recent inclusion of TikTok, reports indicate that YouTube has confirmed the development of a Vision Pro app. It appears only a matter of time before these leading social media platforms become accessible on the new Vision Pro platform.
