A assist doc revealed within the wake of the Apple Vision Pro launch has made it clear that each one you are able to do with Discover My in the event you lose your headset is lock it down.
Presumably, Apple is counting on the sheer dimension of the headset and protecting solid to insulate towards loss. It is a good factor, as a result of a assist doc revealed on Friday makes it clear that you simply will not be capable to use your iPhone to seek out it.
“Whenever you activate Find My, you shield your Imaginative and prescient Professional with Activation Lock — however you may’t use one other Apple machine or the online to seek out Imaginative and prescient Professional on a map, play a sound to assist discover it, activate Misplaced Mode, or remotely erase it,” Apple says within the doc.
It is seemingly an engineering alternative. The headset itself does not have a battery. The battery is hooked up to the aspect of the headset with a detachable plug, and when it is disconnected, there isn’t any “grace interval” to swap to a brand new battery — it simply shuts off.
In case you do lose it, there’s all the time Activation Lock. That’s settable in Discover My, the identical method you’d lock another machine remotely within the case of loss.
