Apple Vision Pro’s Multilingual Keyboard Hints Launch in These Nine Countries Markets

Apple’s much-hyped Vision Pro headset has launched in US, but the tech giant appears to be laying the groundwork for a wide initial rollout across multiple regions and languages.

According to a recent code leak, Apple is gearing up to expand the Vision Pro’s system language support well beyond its current English limitation. Specifically, the company looks to be adding compatibility for a total of 12 new languages spanning an array of Asian, European, and English dialects.

While the full list of incoming languages hasn’t been explicitly detailed, the findings point to Apple prepping virtual keyboard inputs for markets like Australia, Canada, France, Germany, China, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and the United Kingdom—at least based on the linguistic regions covered.

It’s an interesting peek behind the curtain that could reveal Apple’s targeted launch markets for the Vision Pro’s second wave of availability later this year. After all, thorough localization and translation support tends to be a key prerequisite for any major new hardware rollout these days.

To be clear, this potential market roadmap remains speculative for now. As the leaker clarified, the multilingual keyboard intel wasn’t directly sourced from references within Apple’s visionOS code itself. Still, it tracks with previously rumored plans for the company’s augmented reality headgear.

If this linguistic-based launch prediction holds true, it would mark a fairly aggressive global push out of the gate for Apple’s most ambitious new product category since the original iPhone. Select flagships like the upcoming “Apple Square One” retail location in Canada could even play host to Vision Pro demo zones right off the bat.

Of course, pricing and availability details remain completely under wraps for the time being. But as Apple doubles down on translation efforts, it’s shaping up to be an internationalized affair when the Vision Pro finally hits the scene—whenever and wherever that may be.
