A forgotten Apple Vision Pro passcode doesn't mean an Apple Store visit anymore

visionOS on an Apple Vision Pro

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.

Released on Monday, visionOS 1.0.3 is the first official update to the operating system since the release of the Apple Vision Pro itself. The update brings with it an important change concerning passcodes.

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.

As part of the reset, users will still be required to authenticate their Apple ID.

The visionOS 1.0.3 update is build number 21N333, and replaces visionOS 1.0.2 from January 31, build number 21N323.
