As The Walt Disney Company continues celebrating its 100th-anniversary celebration, the company will make bold moves. Disney has maintained a partnership with Apple for decades. In 2005, Bob Iger, the CEO, announced during an event that a selection of top-rated popular TV shows would be downloadable through the iTunes Music Store.

During its annual software developer meeting, Apple Inc revealed a new product category, an augmented-reality headset called the Apple Vision Pro. According to Mint.com, this new product release marks Apple’s significant venture into a new product category for the first time since the introduction of the Apple Watch nearly a decade ago. Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, referred to it as “spatial computing,” where the device is operated using your eyes, hands, and voice.

Cook would go on to tell attendees at the conference that the Apple Vision Pro is the first Apple product you look through rather than just looking at it. Apple stated that the Vishasped, with a three-dimensional camera and microphone system, enables users to capture videos and photos that can be viewed in 3D later. The company demonstrated this capability by showcasing a parent using the feature during a child’s birthday celebration.

Are you excited to hear that Disney Plus will be featured on day one of Apple’s Vision Pro launch?
