6 apps that take you to a VR world
Mac Life|April 2021
Grab a headset and jump into virtual reality

With Apple focusing on augmented reality (AR), you might not be aware of how many great virtual reality (VR) apps are available. Unlike AR, which overlays digital content onto the real world, VR takes you to a new place entirely, shut off from the world in a fully immersive virtual realm. You don’t need a hugely powerful Mac to enjoy it — just a relatively modern iOS device and a headset. While many headsets can be expensive, they don’t have to be: Google Cardboard, for example, lets you build your own. Now is the ideal time to give VR a try — if it sounds like your thing, we have the perfect apps for you here.

The world’s most famous video app has a ton of original VR content from a whole bunch of top–notch providers. YouTube’s own virtual reality channel hosts videos from creators like National Geographic, Discovery, the NBA, and many more. That lets you get up close and personal with sports stars, tour stunning locations the world over, and try out experiences that you have never done before.
