How to Enable Guest Mode on Apple Vision Pro

Enabling Guest Mode is an easy process:

  1. Open Control Center: Look up and tap the down button at the top of your view. Then, tap the Control Center button itself.
  2. Locate Guest User: Among the control options, find the icon resembling a head inside a dotted circle. This represents the Guest User.
  3. Customize Access (Optional): Tap on Guest User to access settings. Here, you can choose what the guest can access:
    • Open Apps Only: Restricts access to currently open apps, ideal for quick demos.
    • All Apps & Data: Grants limited access to your apps and data. Remember, sensitive information like Optic ID, Apple Pay, EyeSight, and Persona remain private.
  4. View Mirroring (Optional): Want to see what the guest is experiencing? Tap on View Mirroring and choose a compatible device to mirror the Vision Pro display.
  5. Start the Session: Once you’re ready, tap “Start.” Remember, you have five minutes to pass the Vision Pro to the guest before the session automatically ends.

A Glimpse of What Guests Can Do

In Guest Mode, guests can enjoy a range of Vision Pro functionalities:

  • Explore the Home Screen: They can access pre-installed apps like Spatial Audio, Fitness, and Accessibility settings.
  • Experience Apps: Allow them to use open apps or, if you granted access, browse your app library with limited permissions.
  • Adjust Settings: Guests can personalize their experience by adjusting brightness, audio, and accessibility settings within Guest Mode limitations.
  • Learn More: A dedicated section provides them with basic instructions and information about Guest Mode and privacy.

Important Considerations and Tips

Here are some key points to remember when using Guest Mode:

  • Guest Activity is Temporary: All activity within Guest Mode is wiped clean upon ending the session. Downloads, app usage, and settings adjustments won’t affect your main profile.
  • Limited Access: Even with “All Apps & Data” chosen, guests cannot access sensitive information like passwords, banking details, or personal messages.
  • Passcode Protection: Remember, if you have a passcode set, the Vision Pro will automatically lock after five minutes of inactivity or when you end the Guest Mode session.
  • Mirroring for Assistance: Utilize View Mirroring to guide guests unfamiliar with the Vision Pro or assist if needed.
  • Cleaning and Hygiene: Don’t forget to disinfect your Vision Pro before and after allowing someone else to use it, especially if it’s being worn directly on the face.

Sharing the Vision: Beyond Guest Mode

Guest Mode offers a convenient way to introduce others to the Vision Pro, but there are alternative approaches:

  • Create a separate Vision Pro profile: If someone will use the device regularly, consider setting up a dedicated profile for them. This provides more tailored access and settings while maintaining clear separation from your data.
  • Consider accessibility features: Vision Pro offers robust accessibility options that don’t require Guest Mode. If someone needs temporary assistance, explore features like VoiceOver or Zoom.

The Final Word: Sharing Responsibly

Enabling Guest Mode on your Vision Pro allows you to share its capabilities while safeguarding your privacy. By understanding the features, limitations, and best practices, you can ensure a smooth and secure experience for both you and your guests. So, go ahead, activate Guest Mode, and let others experience the magic of the Vision Pro!
