According to a recent Bloomberg report, the AR/VR headset, which is said to cost around $3,000, will work with existing iPadOS apps, like the Camera, FaceTime, Books, Home, Messages, Photos, Safari, and more.
Like the Meta Quest Pro, HTC Vive Cosmos, and Sony Playstation VR, it's expected that the Apple AR/VR headset will lean heavily on gaming, presumably as a new way to access Apple Arcade, and will feature a new Fitness+ experience.

The report also mentions that the headset should be capable of running hundreds of thousands of third-party iPad apps with little modification, including a variety of games, reading apps, and fitness services.
