Apple today released a visionOS 1.0.3 update for the Vision Pro headset, marking the first update provided by Apple since the device’s launch. The software arrives two weeks after the release of the visionOS 1.0.2 update.
The new visionOS update can be installed by opening the settings app and going to the software update section.
With visionOS 1.0.3, Apple added an option to reset the Vision Pro headset if the password set on the device has been forgotten. It also includes fixes for unspecified bugs. Apple release notes:
This update provides important bug fixes and adds an option to reset your device if you have forgotten your password.
The Vision Pro launched without a way to reset the device without first unlocking it with a password. Those who ended up forgetting their password had to go to an Apple store to reset it. With the update, if a password is rejected a certain number of times, users will have the option to erase the Vision Pro.
Note that wiping the Vision Pro doesn’t remove Activation Lock, so someone who stole the headset and used that feature to wipe it still wouldn’t be able to sign in with their Apple ID.
