Apple Vision Pro keyboard language code could hint at imminent global launch

Apple Vision Pro software keyboard

There are 12 languages in Apple Vision Pro code that could indicate Apple's plans for expanding the product's availability, but it could also mean nothing.

Apple Vision Pro launched in the United States and nowhere else on February 2. Rumors suggest Apple could begin a global rollout before WWDC, but no official news has been revealed.

Code sleuths at MacRumors believe that code in visionOS may hint at Apple's upcoming global Apple Vision Pro release. The twelve languages represent obvious options across the world including Japan, Korea, Australia, Canada, the UK, EU, and China.

The following languages are being added:

  • Cantonese, Traditional
  • Chinese, Simplified
  • English (Australia)
  • English (Canada)
  • English (Japan)
  • English (Singapore)
  • English (UK)
  • French (Canada)
  • French (France)
  • German (Germany)
  • Japanese
  • Korean

Language support could also just mean Apple wants to make the Apple Vision Pro more accessible to users in the United States that speak different languages. There's nothing really tying the code to Apple's global launch beyond speculation, but it does seem likely that visionOS 1.2 could be tied to a wider launch.

There isn't a beta for visionOS 1.2 just yet, so nothing can be confirmed. With WWDC just a few months away in June, most of the world likely doesn't have much longer to wait for Apple Vision Pro to arrive in their country.
