End User Computing UX with Apple Vision Pro

Apple Vision Pro was released 2nd February 2024 in United States. I was lucky to get my hands on a device and shoot some videos of user experience with End User Computing (EUC) using Frame, Windows 365, Citrix and Parallels. I did a presentation 15th February 2024 at Teamrge about what the Apple Vision Pro is and how the user experience is with above EUC technologies. I will in this blogpost cover what Apple Vision Pro is and show user the user experience with videos I have uploaded to my Youtube channel.

Apple Vision Pro is the first real spacial computing from Apple.
Apple Vision Pro seamless blends digital content with your physical space

“Just as the Mac introduced us to personal computing, and iPhone introduced us to mobile computing, Apple Vision Pro introduces us to spatial computing.” –Tim Cook


Unlocking the power of the Apple Vision Pro – A comprehensive DaaS Exploration 

I will in this blogpost cover each technology how Frame, Windows 365, Citrix and Parallels are working on the Apple Vision Pro

End user experience with Dizzion Frame

Frame is one of EUC technologies I have been followed since it was born back in the days when it was called main.frame. Frame was born independent and then sold to Nutanix and later to Dizzion, but this only means it keeps getting better and better, and I was very excited that Ruben Sprujit provided me access to their demo environment that is running in US East, US West and Europe. I could quickly access pre installed DaaS environments that have CAD applications, high end benchmark applications running and the best part have a GPU attached (NVIDIA A10) running from Microsoft Azure.

Frame is a solution that works great on any device, it works flawless out of the box on Apple iPad and Apple MacBook Air as I showed in below picture. This was taken from my hotel room when I was working while I was attending a conference. It gives an indication on how would user experience be if you had to work on a Frame DaaS environment running in US West *Revit (left on the Apple iPad) and (right on Apple MacBook Air M2) which is connected to Frame DaaS environment running in Europe *Google Earth.

Now you understand how Frame looks like from a typical “physical endpoint” let’s look at how it is working from Apple Vision Pro.

End user experience with Dizzion Frame and Apple Vision Pro

The simple things was with the Apple Vision Pro, I just started up the browser Safari and Frame works out of the box, I could easy login to multiple DaaS environments in US East, US West and Europe having 3 windows. Normal I work daily on my Apple MacBook Air 15″ M2 and it have a great screen but its still limited with resolution that’s the beauty with Apple Vision Pro. I could connect to my Apple MacBook Air 15″ M2 and then screen goes black on the “Apple MacBook Air” and then the display is floating in my face on the Apple Vision Pro “securely” as nobody beside myself can now see my screen from the Apple MacBook Air. That means I could now grab the window and easy extend it from 30″ to 400″ and resolution is crystal sharp and you can continue working, the difference between other XR headset is that I have never experience so sharp graphics and immersive user experience. I wanted to have multiple screen connected to my other Frame DaaS environments so I opened Safari on left side and connected to US West and on the right side I opened Safari and connected to Frame DaaS environment and opened Europe and now I am connecting to 3 locations in the world and have 3″ large floating monitors.
