Will the Vive (Vive Pro) wireless adapter be supported in Mac OS?

Since Apple announced 'plug-and play' support for HTC Vive Pro,

I ordered wireless adapter.

 

Will the wireless adapter be supported in Mac OS X (from Mojavi)?

@iPsych,

 

The wireless adapter is only approved for Windows installations - as far as I'm aware there is not a published driver for the  underlying radio technology (Intel W13100) for MacOS and beyond the driver there may be deeper compatibility issues with MacOS/Mac HW.

 

I would actually recommend canceling your order or returning it if you're in your return window because as it stands the adapter is unfortunately a Windows only solution.

Thank you for your kind and detailed advices.

Actually it's OK, since I set up the Windows-based VR station for in case the board and adapter only support Windows OS.

 

What I am curious about is, since Apple show their ambitious interst on VR (and AR) in WWDC, and started to provide 'native' support of Vive Pro, isn't there some ongoing plan or roadmap to provide this wireless VR experience in Apple platform.

We don't discuss internal roadmaps publicly and we can't comment on what other companies are planning on doing. Stay tuned to our social media outlets and the Vive website for any upcoming announcements.

Thank you,

If your base station has a Fault 02/03 error or a red light or both, the ONLY solution is to contact our support on vive.com and set up an RMA. There is no user fix for this issue.
