Apple’s slick new Vision Pro headset has some hidden talents beyond advertised features! Sharp-eyed analyst Ben Thompson leaked that Apple engineers can already cast multiple Mac displays inside their visionOS headsets.
While the public Vision Pro experience only mirrors a single Mac screen, Thompson confirms Apple campus testers juggle two monitor workflows on that 3D platform. Makes sense they’d dogfood such productivity potential before wider rollouts.
For now, we average Joes are stuck with a single visionOS “theater” displaying our primary Mac display while secondary monitors go dark. But the thought of eventually compartmentalizing multiple desktops for easy headset toggling sure sounds enticing!
Whether we see that capability out in the wild remains uncertain, though. Apple may still optimize visionOS to smoothly handle dense visual environments before sanctioning multi-display configurations. Fingers crossed, this perk reaches consumers sooner rather than later!
In the meantime, enjoy harnessing your Vision Pro as a surprisingly capable 3K portable Mac monitor on the go. The integration Apple built between platforms continues raising eyebrows…and hopes for the headset’s long-term utility when untethered from phones or computers entirely. This could get wild!
