How to power up and power down your Apple Vision Pro

In a new Medium post, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says U.S. shipments of the Apple Vision Pro are expected to be 200,000–250,000 units this year.

If your Apple Vision Pro isn’t working as expected, you can try restarting it by turning it off, then turning it back on. If turning it off and on doesn’t fix the issue, try forcing it to restart — as described in Apple support documents.

To turn on Apple Vision Pro

Do any of the following:

  • Press and hold the top button for a few seconds until the Apple logo appears on the front display.
  • If you disconnected the battery, simply connect it again—Apple Vision Pro turns on automatically.

When Apple Vision Pro is on and the battery is connected, it sleeps when you take it off, and wakes when you put it on. You don’t need to turn Apple Vision Pro on and off each time you want to use it.

To turn off Apple Vision Pro

Before you turn off Apple Vision Pro, always make sure any files you’re working on are saved.

Do any of the following:

  • Press and hold the top button and the Digital Crown, then drag the slider.
  • Go to Settings  > General > Shut Down, then drag the slider.
  • Say, “Siri, turn off my Apple Vision Pro.”
  • Take off Apple Vision Pro, place it on a secure surface (like a table or desk), then disconnect the power cable from the Audio Strap.

Note: If it isn’t connected to power, Apple Vision Pro automatically shuts down after 24 hours of inactivity to preserve battery.

To force a Vision Pro to restart

Press and hold the top button and the Digital Crown until the displays turn black (keep holding even when the Force Quit Applications window and the power slider appear). You can take off Apple Vision Pro while it restarts.

While Apple Vision Pro restarts, the Apple logo appears on the front display. If you don’t see the Apple logo, you may need to press and hold the top button for a few seconds until it appears.
