With iOS 17.2 beta, Apple added a feature that allows the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max to record space footage designed for the upcoming Apple Vision Pro headset. Since Vision Pro isn’t available yet, there’s no way to watch Spatial Video in its 3D form on an Apple device.


However, space video content can be viewed on Meta Quest 3 and other 3D devices thanks to a workaround shared by YouTuber Hugh Ho. Earlier this week, Hou explained how to manipulate Spatial Video to run on the Meta VR headset.

Of course, to record space video in the first place, an iPhone 15 Pro with iOS 17.2 beta is required. The beta version is available to both developers and public beta testers, and downloading it is as simple as going to the Software Update section of your iPhone’s Settings app and scrolling down to Beta Updates.

Spatial video recording should be enabled in the camera settings after the iOS 17.2 update, and from there, Hou instructs users to download the “Spatialify” app on TestFlight.

The program has instructions on how to decode and export spatial video into a format that can be viewed by the Meta Quest 3 or other 3D headsets and TVs, and there is an additional step that involves encoding the 3D metadata.

It’s not the easiest process, but it might be interesting for iPhone 15 Pro users who have a VR headset or 3D TV and want to see the space video before the Vision Pro headset is released.

Spatial Video is designed to allow Vision Pro headset wearers to view video in a more immersive 3D format. Along with the iPhone 15 Pro, this headset can also be used to record space video content.
