Apple Releases visionOS 1.1 Beta 4

Apple today released fourth beta of an upcoming visionOS 1.1 update for developers, allowing them to test new features ahead of the software seeing a public launch. The new update comes a week after the release of the third beta.

visionOS Home Screen
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.

‌visionOS‌ 1.1 brings support for iMessage Contact Key Verification and it adds Apple device management to the Vision Pro. With this functionality, IT departments at companies and educational institutions can manage Vision Pro headsets in the same way they manage iPhones, iPads, and Macs.

According to Apple's beta notes, users can now reposition volumetric scenes closer than before, enabling easier direct interaction with the volumetric scene content. That means objects can be placed closer to you.

Apple has also improved Personas in ‌visionOS‌ 1.1, making them look more natural and lifelike than before.

To be clear you must have a paid dev account to get the vision beta right? I’ve about stopped using my avp till the next release cause it keeps getting hot and is just buggy AF.
You do not need a paid dev account.

Beta 3 has been solid for me, no issues.

Would appreciate hearing anyone's experience with this beta once you've been able to try it out.
Been using it for a few hours now. Seems as stable as the release version (much improved over earlier betas). May be a placebo effect, but responsiveness and eye tracking may be a bit improved. I appreciate the Vision Pro the more I use it. Looking forward to what Apple shows at WWDC this year.

Good to hear, thanks! I'm super excited for WWDC and visionOS 2.0 as well, it's already a great start and I can see so much potential ahead for future releases.
