Apple launches an application store for its new smart glasses

Apple announced a new application store that it developed for Vision Pro glasses, which it will begin launching soon.

According to available information, the new store can only be accessed by developers in the United States, who obtained Vision Pro to try it out.

The application store running the VisionOS system will contain applications dedicated to Vision Pro glasses, as well as applications intended for iOS systems, which are displayed in 2D, which means that current Apple Store applications will be available to users of the new smart glasses when they are launched.

The "macrumors" website indicated that those wishing to obtain the new Apple Glasses in the United States can send purchase orders to the company's websites as of January 19, and that the Glasses are supposed to be available in Apple stores as of next February 2.

Media: YouTube punishes users of the skip ads feature!

YouTube users who try to skip ads using the AdBlock browser extension say the platform is retaliating by throttling their computers' performance, PCGamer reported.

Enabling AdBlock in an attempt to avoid commercials before and while watching a video on YouTube increased CPU usage by 17%, a PCGamer reporter found.

Subscribers to the ad-free YouTube Premium service who used AdBlock on other websites found their computers' performance to be relatively low. Another PCGamer writer noted up to an 18% increase in CPU usage despite paying for the privilege of ad-free viewing.

YouTube warns users that using ad blockers violates its terms of service, and recently began displaying pop-ups asking viewers to disable the browser extension. However, 60 million people use AdBlock alone, and browser extensions with similar functionality abound.

YouTube's director of communications, Christopher Lawton, contacted PCGamer after their article was published to flatly deny that the video platform was responsible for the performance issue.

“The loading delays experienced by AdBlock and AdBlock Plus users are not caused by our efforts to detect the ad blocker,” he told the site, which updated its article to shift the blame to AdBlock itself.

YouTube has long struggled with its users' efforts to avoid ads it displays before, during and after videos they actually want to watch. Last year, the platform experimented with limiting ad-blocking users to three videos before requiring them to whitelist the site, allowing its ads to run despite the ban, or pay for YouTube Premium. Declining both options will leave visitors unable to view further content.

The platform acknowledged that it is conducting a "small, global trial" on ad blocking users in a statement to The Verge, where it framed its demands as reasonable because "other publishers regularly ask viewers to disable ad blockers."

In November, YouTube was found to be punishing users who use browser extensions that block ads by delaying the loading of its videos by five seconds, a tactic that Lawton acknowledged in another statement to The Verge.

He said users can expect to "continue to see issues like this as YouTube ad blocker detection improves."
