Regardless of the revamped Apple TV app on tvOS 17.2, it appears the primary beta of the Apple TV system has added assist for 3D motion pictures. Whereas no main TV producer affords 3D shows anymore, this might trace at Apple getting every little thing prepared forward of the Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional launch in early 2024.

This addition on tvOS 17.2 beta was noticed by FlatPanelsHD. In line with the publication, once you seek for motion pictures on the iTunes Film Retailer, some would possibly seem with a brand new 3D emblem. This emblem resembles the Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional icon along with a “3D” written on it.

I attempted to seek out for myself the 3D icon on the Apple TV operating tvOS 17.2, nevertheless it didn’t seem. In the mean time, it’s unclear if this assist is likely to be region-locked (US solely, as a substitute of worldwide) or if Apple eliminated this icon after media protection on that matter.

Alongside Jurassic World Dominion, Pacific Rim Rebellion, Trolls, Minions: The Rise of Gru, and Everest, there may be already an excellent listing of 3D motion pictures obtainable within the retailer:

  • 47 Ronin
  • Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away
  • Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters

  • The Boss Child: Household Enterprise
  • The Little Princess
  • The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature
  • The Secret Lifetime of Pets 2
  • Trolls World Tour
  • Warcraft

In the mean time, it’s unattainable to make the most of these motion pictures in 3D attributable to lack of {hardware} – though some builders testing the Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional might need a primary hands-on of immersive motion pictures on the spatial headset.

Apple has additionally been reportedly readying a brand new immersive video 3D format for its productions. Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, an upcoming Apple TV+ present, is rumored to have been shot on this format.

tvOS 17.2 is rumored to launch later this yr. Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional will launch within the US in early 2024.
