Apple expects global developers to serve the US-only Vision Pro… I don't think it's fair!

A lot of Apple fans were disappointed when the company announced the long-awaited Vision Pro, before going on to say that initial sales wouldn't extend beyond American borders. Now the company has announced six locations where developers will be able to get a hands-on experience with the goggles, with some in markets Apple hasn't (yet) promised the spatial computing device will even be on sale.

The "Developer Labs" will open next month in Cupertino, London, Munich, Shanghai, Singapore, and Tokyo so developers can, in Apple's words, get "hands-on experience to test their apps on Apple Vision Pro hardware and get support from Apple engineers. Development teams will also be able to apply for developer kits to help them quickly build, iterate, and test right on Apple Vision Pro."
