Here’s how to connect Bluetooth devices to an Apple Vision Pro

Some, but not all, Bluetooth accessories are compatible for use with the Apple Vision Pro. An Apple support document describes which ones are and how you connect them to the spatial computer. 

But there’s no disappoint thing: The Vision Pro doesn’t work with any Bluetooth mice at all, though it does work with the Apple Magic Trackpad. However, older Trackpads with removable batteries aren’t compatible, nor are trackpads from other manufacturers.

Connecting Bluetooth devices to Apple Vision Pro

To connect most compatible Bluetooth devices with Apple Vision Pro, follow the device’s instructions to enter pairing mode. Then open Settings > Bluetooth on Apple Vision Pro and tap the device’s name.

To connect AirPods and some models of Beats headphones, just put them in your ears. Apple Vision Pro connects to them automatically if they’re already associated with your Apple ID and if they’re not being used by another device. 

To connect compatible hearing devices and other Bluetooth headphones with Apple Vision Pro, put the device in pairing mode. Then open Settings > Accessibility > Hearing Devices on Apple Vision Pro and tap the device’s name.

AirPods and Beats headphones

All current models of AirPods and Beats headphones can connect to Apple Vision Pro. For the best experience, including Lossless Audio and ultra-low latency, use AirPods Pro (2nd generation) with MagSafe Charging Case (USB-C).

Keyboards and trackpads

Most Bluetooth keyboards made by Apple and other manufacturers can connect to Apple Vision Pro. Vision Pro also works with Apple Magic Trackpad.

As mentioned, the Apple Vision Pro isn’t compatible with older models of Apple keyboards and trackpads that use removable batteries. Apple Vision Pro also isn’t compatible with Bluetooth mice.


All controllers with MFi (Made for iPhone) designation work with Apple Vision Pro. This includes contollers by Xbox, PlayStation, and any controller that works with iPadOS.

Hearing devices

All hearing devices with MFi designation can connect to Apple Vision Pro. Some models by Phonak, IQBud, and Poco are also compatible.

Note that Apple Vision Pro compatibility with third-party Bluetooth devices and accessories isn’t guaranteed. If you have trouble connecting Apple Vision Pro to your third-party device, contact the device’s manufacturer for help.
