With Apple Vision Pro now available in the US, users can take advantage of a few accessories to unlock this spatial computer’s full potential.

Whether you’re just curious about what you can do with it or what you might need to get the most out of Apple Vision Pro, BGR lists some of the accessories you might need.

First of all, it’s important to note that we won’t be talking about the included items of this device, such as its external battery, seals, polish cloth, etc. Shall we?

Apple Vision Pro Travel case: Designed by Apple to protect your Apple Vision Pro when you’re on the go. The Travel Case has a retractable handle and specially designed compartments for your battery, ZEISS Optical Inserts, Apple Vision Pro Cover, and additional accessories. It costs $199.

Magic Keyboard: If you plan to work with the Apple Vision Pro, the first accessory you’ll need is the Magic Keyboard. Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman writes that the virtual keyboard of this spatial computer is a “complete write-off,” and users have to “poke each key one finger at a time,” so you’ll probably need something better to type than this virtual keyboard.

Magic Trackpad: You might also need the Magic Trackpad for better precision while working. This accessory will help you type a document, select a part of a text, etc.

Mac: Believe it or not, the Mac is (a very expensive) accessory for the Apple Vision Pro. You can create a virtual desktop, use visionOS apps alongside your Mac, mirror Vision Pro to Mac, and connect its accessories to Apple’s spatial computer.

Belkin Battery Holder: Designed to keep your Apple Vision Pro Battery safe and secure, the Battery Holder allows for a convenient and versatile hands-free experience. The Battery Holder offers a quick and easy way to clip the battery onto a belt or waistband, while the cross-body strap gives those without clip access a great way to be hands-free while experiencing Apple Vision Pro.

iPhone 15 Pro: The iPhone 15 Pro is one of Apple Vision Pro’s must-have accessories. With it, you can later record spatial videos to play on your spatial computer. Although you can do that with Vision Pro, a better solution is to record those videos with your iPhone instead. Rumors say that it will be possible to record spatial videos with all iPhone 16 models.

30W USB-C Power Adapter and Charge Cable: Although both of these accessories come with Apple Vision Pro, it is always best to have more than one at home. Whether you want to have one on the go or for a different room, you should consider spending $68 for peace of mind.

Sony PlayStation® DualSense™ Wireless Controller: Play controller-supported games from Apple Arcade and stream compatible games from your PS4 or PS5 console to your Vision Pro using the PS Remote Play App.

AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C: Lastly, AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C is also at the top of the list if you want to take full advantage of Apple Vision Pro. Thanks to a new codec, these earbuds can stream lossless audio via Bluetooth. If you want the best audio experience on this spatial computer, you need Apple’s latest AirPods model.

BGR will let you know once third-party accessory makers start developing their own solutions for Apple’s spatial computer. I’m looking forward to a bulkier battery to give us more than 2h30 of power, which is what Cupertino promises for now.
