This is certainly going to make it a lot easier for HTC Vive Pro owners to use their headsets with Mac computers. Apple has worked directly with Valve and HTC to bring plug and play support for the headset to Mojave.

Karol Gasinski of Apple’s GPU Software Architecture Team confirmed during the company’s Metal for VR presentation during WWDC 2018 that the HTC Vivo Pro will get plug and play support for macOS 10.14.

“We’ve been working very closely with both Valve and HTC to make sure Vive Pro is supported in SteamVR runtime on macOS,” Gasinski said.

Even though Apple has announced enhanced support for the headset, it’s actually not going to be available in the initial betas of macOS Mojave. It’s possible that Apple might include it in a future build but it’s unclear as of now how soon the company will begin testing this with the beta builds. It’s not due to release macOS Mojave for users until the fall this year.
