Today was supposed to be all about the Apple Vision Pro. It's the official launch date for Apple's mixed reality headset, with units due to start shipping in the US after pre-orders opened last month. But it seems the Meta Quest has just gatecrashed the party.

Mark Zuckerberg's rival VR headset has announced the release of its v62 software update, and it includes spatial video support like Apple's offering. That means it will be possible to use the Quest Pro or Quest 2 or 3 to view 3D footage captured with iPhone 15 Pro or Apple Vision Pro via the Meta Quest mobile app (see our Meta Quest 3 review for more on Meta's headset).
