Apple Vision Pro Gets Reset Option for Forgotten Password With visionOS 1.0.3 Update

Apple Vision Pro, which supports both augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies, hit stores in the US two weeks ago. Now, the Cupertino-based tech giant has released the visionOS 1.0.3 software update for the mixed reality headset with several bug fixes and improvements. The update brings the option to reset the Apple Vision Pro if the user has forgotten their passcodes. Previously, owners who lost their passcodes had to visit the Apple Store or ship it to AppleCare customer support to use the device again. The software update comes a few weeks after the release of the visionOS 1.0.2 update.

Apple released the visionOS 1.0.3 update for its Vision Pro headset on Monday (February 12). The latest version offers the ability to reset the Vision Pro headset if the passcode set on the device has been forgotten. It also includes bug fixes and improvements. With the latest build, users will be able to restore the headset using their Apple ID password. Previously, users who lost their passcodes were required to take their Apple Vision Pros to an Apple Store or mail them to AppleCare customer support to get them working again.

The new ‌visionOS‌ update can be installed by heading to Settings app>Settings>General> Software Update.

The visionOS 1.0.3 software is the first visionOS update provided by Apple since the Vision Pro has been available to customers. Apple issued the visionOS 1.0.2 version before the mixed reality headset hit stores in the US on February 2.

The price of Apple Vision Pro starts at $3,499 (roughly Rs. 2,90,000) with 256GB storage in the US. It is currently up for sale through US Apple Store locations as well as through the company’s Web store. The spatial computer features two microOLED panels with up to 100Hz refresh rate. It is powered by Apple’s M2 processor and a new R1 chip. The headset offers iris-based biometric authentication and is claimed to deliver up to two hours of battery life on a single charge.

Apple unveiled its first mixed reality headset, the Apple Vision Pro, at its annual developer conference, along with new Mac models and upcoming software updates.
