Apple noted that only account holders in the Apple Developer Program can apply for the Vision Pro kit, which should be returned upon request.
Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) shares closed Monday trading at $192.75, up 0.42 percent from the day’s opening price. The gains had extended by approximately 0.36 percent during the after-hours trading session, thus solidifying its YTD performance of nearly 49 percent. Also, the $3 trillion valued tech company intends to work with application developers in order to wholly utilize the Vision Pro capabilities. Consequently, Apple opened applications for a Vision Pro developer kit to Apple Developer Program account holders with reputable publications.
The impressive performance YTD is partially attributed to the launch of a new product after several years dubbed Vision Pro. Notably, the Apple Vision Pro is set to revolutionize the 3D immersive industry after its planned launch in 2024 at a price of $3,499 per headset.
Apple Vision Pro Developer Kit
In addition to receiving the Vision Pro kit, application developers will also get help from the Apple team in setting up the device and onboarding. The company also announced application developers will also get check-ins with Apple experts for user interface (UI) design and development guidance in a bid to help refine their applications. Apple will also provide Vision Pro app developers with two additional code-level support requests to help troubleshoot any issues with the source code. Apple has, however, reserved the right to collect the Vision Pro device upon request.
“Availability is limited and on a first-come-first-served basis. If capacity gets full, you’ll be added to the waitlist and we’ll reach out when more spots become available,” the company noted.
Interestingly, the company has directed all the developers that will be selected not to share access to the Vision Pro gadget with family, friends, or on social media platforms. Meanwhile, the company intends to work with developers from all over the world including through its Labs available in Cupertino, London, Munich, Shanghai, Singapore, and Tokyo.
Apple and Its Performance
Apple has undeniably dominated the hardware technology market around the world, having sold billions of devices since its inception.

As a result, Apple has seen its stock market rise exponentially through the Covid and post-pandemic seasons. According to the latest stock market data, AAPL shares gained 26 percent last year and have almost doubled the performance YTD. Having been rated by 44 analysts, the Apple stock market received an average rating of Over.
Since the company began to manufacture its in-house semiconductor chips, Apple has managed to have better control of its output with more reliable performance.
