If you are waiting for the arrival of your new HTC via virtual reality headset you might be interested to know that HTC has this week officially launched its new HTC Vive iOS application allowing you to stay connected even whilst immersing yourself in the new virtual reality environments.
The HTC Vive VR headset will be launching on in just a few days time on April 5th, 2016 and has been developed in a partnership between Valve and HTC and brings with it “room scale” technology to turn a room into 3D space via sensors.
Information regards the new HTC Vive iOS application is still a little lean at the moment but the official description explains “
Don’t miss what’s important IRL while you’re in VR. To get essential notifications in the world of virtual reality, just connect your iPhone with your HTC Vive.

– Get notified about calendar events and view the details
