visionOS 1.2 beta 3 is now available

The second major point release of visionOS, the operating system for Apple Vision Pro, has just entered beta testing. When visionOS 1.1 landed a month ago, it mostly polished up a few sore spots from the release version (like the inability to reset your device). There’s no telling what visionOS 1.2 will bring–Spatial Personas has already come to all Vision Pro headsets before the 1.2 release.

Updated April 23: The third beta of visionOS 1.2 is now available.

What’s new in visionOS 1.2

We don’t know yet what is new in visionOS 1.2, but we’ll update this section as new features and changes are discovered.

This release appears to be primarily concerned with fixing bugs. Even the developer release notes don’t list much in the way of changes to frameworks or APIs.

visionOS 1.2: How to install the public beta

We’re not sure if Apple will have a public beta program for visionOS yet—there’s no Public Beta option yet, but the device is still quite new. We expect it would work like it does on other Apple devices.

You’ll probably join the beta by opening Settings, selecting General, then Software Updates. In the Beta Updates section, choose visionOS Public Beta.

visionOS 1.2: How to install the developer beta

You’ll need to be registered as an Apple developer, but you don’t need to be in the $99 per year developer program to access the developer beta; a free developer account will do. You can get one via Xcode or the Apple Developer app in iOS. Here’s how to do it via the Apple Developer app:

  1. Download the Apple Developer App from the App Store.
  2. Open the app.
  3. Tap on Account.
  4. Sign in using your usual Apple ID.
