Second visionOS 1.1 developer beta with passcode reset is now available


Apple is marching on with beta testing visionOS 1.1 on the Apple Vision Pro, with a second round now available for developers.

Apple's first visionOS beta arrived on February 6. The second beta build for visionOS 1.1 is number 21O5188c, replacing build number 21O5181e.

This is the second developer beta for visionOS that Apple has provided following the release of the Apple Vision Pro hardware to the public on February 2. The first beta introduces MDM, Contact Key verification, and Passcode changes to Apple's newest operating system. The second beta adds to StoreKit, SwiftUI, and fixes some bugs introduced in the first beta.

The release notes are sparse. We are examining it now to determine if there are any notable additions from the first beta.

Users need a registered Apple developer account to access the beta, but not a paid one. Installation on the Apple Vision Pro hardware is simple.

How to install the visionOS beta on Apple Vision Pro

  1. Open Settings
  2. Select General.
  3. Enable Beta Updates
  4. Select visionOS Developer Beta.

Developers can also able to use the updated visionOS beta within Xcode, in its visionOS simulator.

There is no way to revert from a beta version of the visionOS to the release line, unless you own a developer's strap. We do not recommend use of the visionOS beta at this time.
