High-end virtual reality is making its way to Macs.

HTC's virtual reality headset, Vive, will be compatible with Apple's latest operating system, High Sierra, the Taiwanese company said Monday in a blog post.

This comes in conjunction with Apple's announcement Monday that it's working with video game maker Valve's SteamVR platform to make it compatible with High Sierra.

"Through a newly announced external GPU, developers and content creators will be able to use a beta of SteamVR and the new MacOS, High Sierra, to access the creative power of Vive with their Macs," HTC's blog post said.

High Sierra, unveiled Monday at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference, will be available later in the year. 

Correction, 9:25 a.m. PT: The HTC blog post initially said "MacBooks," but now says "Macs" in the above quote. The story's quote has been corrected to reflect that change.
