Apple today released the third beta of an upcoming visionOS 1.2 update to developers, allowing them to test new features ahead of the software seeing a public launch. The third visionOS 1.2 beta comes one week after the release the second beta.

The visionOS beta can be downloaded by going to the Settings app on the device and toggling on developer betas. A registered developer account is required, and Apple recommends making a backup before installing new software.

Apple may make further improvements to Personas, EyeSight, and other features with visionOS 1.2, but no major new additions were found in the first two betas.

1.2 fixed an issue introduced in 1.0 causing me to have to recalibrate the eye tracking just about every other day. It was totally worth it for me.
Do you mean 1.2 or 1.1.2 because 1.1.2 is the update that fixed that prob for most people. I had that issue bad starting with 1.1

The 1.2 betas have been good for me, no need to recalibrate all the time.

Any news on what has been fixed in this beta? I’ll check the Release Nones later today.

UPDATE:

3 out of 4 known issues have been fixed on this release:

FaceTime:

  • Fixed: Recent calls from an iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch will not sync to Vision Pro and vice versa.

Keyboards:​

  • Fixed: Trying to access the emoji keyplane from the mini keyboard redirects the user to a letter keyplane with extra platter space.

StoreKit:​

  • Fixed: When testing a compatible iOS or iPadOS app on visionOS, the UI presented from the App Store review request APIs will not render correctly.

As of right now, there are 10 comments each for iOS, macOS, and visionOS. Just not a lot to discuss with a bug fix update with no notable features.
Sigh..IK.. but it’s a brand new product category, and an OS in its first major version. There’s so much to improve and innovate on

I agree with you there! I think they’re saving it for WWDC at this point. They could at least be converting their own apps to be visionOS native. How are Word, Excel, OneNote and Teams native while Numbers and Pages are not?! And Maps seems like it could have an incredible immersive mode. Hopefully in June …

I can understand the first OS being limited. Internal teams probably didn’t have a chance to work on it due to confidentiality.

But if this June they don’t have at least 10+ truly exceptional things for VisionOS2.. well we know for sure AVP is getting abandoned like homepod..

Still no fix for the slow, unreliable image/object recognition and tracking, unfortunately. :(
