How to recover a forgotten password for the Apple Vision Pro headset
Owners of the new Apple Vision Pro mixed reality headset will need to carefully remember (or write down) passwords for their new devices. If you have forgotten your password, you can reset the code only if you provide physical access to the device.
Resetting your Apple Vision Pro headset password
Apple informs its customers that the only option available to reset the password for their headsets is to visit an Apple Store or mail the headset to AppleCare support. Apple will then reset passwords so users can use their devices again.
It is noted that if you enter the wrong password multiple times, the device will be temporarily disabled and the user will have to wait a while before trying again. If entering the correct password also fails and the user requires assistance from Apple specialists, then after resetting all data on the headset will be deleted.
It is important to note that some users complain that the headset is locked even with the correct password. It is unclear whether this problem is specific to individual devices or whether it is global.
Apple Genius Bar employees are reportedly using a device called the $299 Developer Strap to reset their password. This device allows you to connect the headset to your iPad or laptop and reboot. However, there is information about a case where Apple Genius employees were unable to reset the user's headset, and as a result, the device had to be completely replaced.
