As developers continue to work on bringing their apps to Vision Pro, Apple has shared a new update with details on Vision Pro’s App Store via its website. Starting this fall, Apple says visionOS will have the App Store built in, allowing developers to expand their testing of Vision Pro apps.

As Apple explained at WWDC in June, Vision Pro will be able to run “almost all iPhone and iPad apps” currently on the App Store. Developers can also build and optimize apps specifically for Vision Pro and visionOS.

visionOS is currently in beta for developers, while Apple has also provided pre-release hardware kits to some developers and hosts in-person labs around the world. However, currently the versions of visionOS under test do not include the App Store, meaning developers cannot download and test third-party apps.

However, starting this fall, Apple says that will change. In a post on the developer website, Apple explains:

Starting this fall, an upcoming beta version of visionOS for developers will feature the App Store. By default, your iPad and/or iPhone apps are automatically published to the App Store on Apple Vision Pro. Most of the frameworks available in iPadOS and iOS are also included in visionOS, which means that almost all iPad and iPhone apps can run on visionOS unmodified. Customers will be able to use your apps on visionOS early next year, when Apple Vision Pro becomes available.

Apple also adds that if a developer’s app “requires a capability that is not available on Apple Vision Pro, App Store Connect will indicate that your app is not compatible and will not be made available.”
