In a surprising development, tech enthusiasts have discovered intriguing details about the highly anticipated Apple Vision Pro headset. MacRumors, a prominent source of Apple-related news, recently uncovered potential airplane-specific settings within the device’s operating system, visionOS. The findings suggest that the upcoming headset may include a “Travel Mode” option, specifically designed to enhance the user experience during plane rides.

The revelation comes as Apple enthusiasts eagerly await the official launch of the Apple Vision Pro, a high-end headset rumored to offer groundbreaking features and immersive experiences. While the exact capabilities of Travel Mode are yet to be fully understood, the information discovered in the beta version of visionOS sheds light on its potential functionalities.

According to MacRumors, several text strings within visionOS make reference to Travel Mode. One message explicitly states, “If you’re on an airplane, you’ll need to keep Travel Mode on to continue using your Apple Vision Pro.” This indicates that users will be required to activate the feature while in flight to ensure uninterrupted use of the device.

The text strings also suggest that remaining stationary is crucial while using Travel Mode, likely to prevent wearers from accidentally disturbing fellow passengers. The mention of “flailing around” indicates Apple’s proactive approach to addressing potential concerns regarding user movement during flights.

Furthermore, MacRumors speculates that certain features related to spatial awareness might be disabled in Travel Mode. While the exact implications of this limitation remain uncertain, it could mean that specific sensors within the headset may not function optimally during air travel.

Another intriguing aspect highlighted by MacRumors is the potential unavailability of the “digital persona” feature. Apple unveiled this feature at its recent Worldwide Developers Conference, enabling users to create hyperrealistic avatars for use during FaceTime calls with the Vision Pro. The exclusion of this feature during Travel Mode suggests that some functionalities may be restricted to ensure a seamless in-flight experience.

Despite these tantalizing details, opinions among potential users remain divided. Some individuals express enthusiasm over the prospect of enhanced in-flight entertainment and immersive experiences, while others harbor reservations about wearing a high-end headset during air travel.

One MacRumors contributor offered a contrasting viewpoint, expressing a preference for traditional in-flight entertainment options. They stated, “Even if the $3,499 headset does come with travel-specific features, I don’t think I could ever see myself wearing it on an airplane. I appreciate the effort, Apple, but I think I’ll just stick with watching movies on the back of the seat in front of me.”
