One notable feature in visionOS 2 is the ability to recognize and display your Magic Keyboard or MacBook keyboard while you’re immersed in an Environment.

Previously, full immersion meant you couldn’t see your keyboard while typing. Now, whether you’re typing on a beach, in the mountains, or even on the moon, your keyboard will be visible.
