France could get Apple Vision Pro at end of June

Apple Vision Pro at WWDC 2023

Leaked internal announcements from Apple Retail heavily suggest that Apple Vision Pro will launch in France on July 29, 2024.

While Apple has confirmed that the Apple Vision Pro will launch in China before the end of 2024, there have been no formal announcements of when the headset will launch anywhere outside the US. Many rumors have specified dates that have since passed without a launch, but now a French source believes it has an accurate schedule.

According to WatchGeneration, staff in France have been told that what it describes (in translation) as an "all stores meeting" will take place early in the week beginning Monday, June 24, 2024. It's a meeting to discuss, at least in part, a "big novelty."

Then on Friday, June 28, 2024, Apple Stores in France will have a staff "VM night." This is reportedly when new products and marketing visuals are set up for unveiling the next day.

More, at least two sources are saying that Apple Stores in France have been asked to make significant space in their storerooms. One claims that Apple has asked for half of the storeroom space to be cleared, while another says it's three quarters.

All of which does point to Apple Vision Pro launching in France. One doubt is that the suggestion is it will launch on Saturday, June 29, rather than the more usual Friday.

Then it would also seem unlikely that Apple would only launch in France, yet so far there have been no similar reports from Germany or other EU countries.

Previously, the general consensus has been that Apple Vision Pro will at least begin to launch internationally before WWDC. However, with WWDC scheduled to begin on June 10, it's now more probable that Apple will want attention and publicity to be focused on its announcements there.
