XR Today – This week has circled Apple, the legacy consumer hardware innovator shocked audiences in many ways when it debuted the Vision Pro, fairly stealing headlines as hyped ramped during the event’s leading months.
But outside of the Apple bubble, many XR announcements also showcased core innovations that deserve headline space alongside Apple – a firm which may find itself to become a massive influence in the immersive market.
Apple Debuts Vision Pro
This week the news finally broke. Following years and years of hints from Apple, the firm finally dropped its immersive device debut.

Taqtile Optimizes Manifest iPad Performance
With the spotlight on Apple, it’s essential to note the presence of iOS devices across various enterprise end-users of immersive solutions.
Many firms employing immersive digital solutions may also leverage Apple devices to deliver XR RT3D assets and placement.
The device comes with AR functionalities built into its camera system, and some firms are utilising this to create robust and interoperable solutions.
Of these firms, Taqtile leverages the iOS platform to distribute AR training and communication services.
This Thursday, Taqtile optimised its Manifest immersive service for iPad users due to growing demand.
With Apple’s enterprise focus, eyes should be placed on firms like Taqtile, who already leverage iOS technology for their immersive services.
If Vision Pro does find a place as an enterprise tool, then firms like Taqtile may be ahead of the curve with an established iOS presence.
