Apple today announced MacOS support for SteamVR as well as external GPU enclosure support. The news came during Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference.

Apple demonstrated the capabilities of VR on a MacBook by showing off a Vive HTC demo.

“Through a newly announced external GPU, developers and content creators will be able to use a beta of SteamVR and the new MacOS, High Sierra, to access the creative power of Vive with their MacBooks,” according to a blog post on Vive’s official website. “Vive is driving the VR industry forward, and in just the last month alone, we have partnered with the world’s most prominent and innovative tech giants including Google, Intel and Apple, who are aligning their VR efforts around Vive.”

There’s no price yet for GPU enclosures.

Apple also announced a new line of iMacs and MacBooks, as well as a MacOS update called High Sierra.

High Sierra hits this fall for free and with it, according to Apple, the iMac becomes a “great platform for virtual reality content creation.”
