Apple’s third update for the Apple Vision Pro operating system, visionOS 1.0.3 makes a change that helps users who’ve forgotten passcodes avoid taking a trip to the Apple Store to fix the problem.
Before the update, Apple Vision Pro owners discovered that they couldn’t recover their headset if they somehow forgot their passcode. Affected users had to either send the headset off to Apple or pay a visit to an Apple Store for a reset, due to a lack of a mechanism to do it themselves.
Spotted initially in the visionOS 1.1 developer beta, the change has made its way earlier than thought, in version 1.0.3. The handling of passcodes is similar to that of the Apple Watch, in that users can erase all their data from the Apple Vision Pro to rest the passcode.
