How to Shut down Apple Vision Pro

This device has an efficient power management system. It doesn’t automatically shut down and can stay on for about 24 hours if not recharged or heated. However, if you’re not using the device, waiting 24 hours to shut it down isn’t practical. Here are some easy ways to power off your device:

Method 1: Using Controls Button

This is a simple way to power off your Vision Pro. Here’s how:

  • Press and hold the Digital Crown and top button together until the Power Off slider appears.
  • Then, perform a pinch gesture to swipe the Power Off slider to the right.

If you’ve set up Siri on your device, you can use it to power off. Just say “Hey Siri, shut down my device.”

Note: To set up Siri, go to Settings > Tap on Siri & Search > Toggle on “Hey Siri” or “Siri.”

Method 3: Using Settings

You can also power off your Vision Pro through the Settings app. Here’s how:

  • Navigate to Settings from the Home view.
  • Select the General menu and tap on Shut Down.
  • Perform a pinch gesture to drag the Power Off slider to the right.
