Apple: In order to address a vulnerability in WebKit, the browser engine that powers Safari and other online applications, Apple has updated visionOS 1.0.2, the software that runs on the Vision Pro. In this article, we will share all that Apple has fixed with the new update.
Apple releases VisionOS 1.0.2 update
The mitigation of a WebKit vulnerability that Apple discovered—which the company indicates may have been the target of aggressive exploitation—is a key objective of visionOS 1.0.2. While the full patch was first included in visionOS 1.0.1 for developers, visionOS 1.0.2 now includes it for users upgrading from the previous version.
When the Vision Pro headsets are delivered—which are expected to begin this Friday—owners may expect a day-one update.
Apple addressed WebKit-based vulnerabilities on iPhones, iPads, Macs, and Apple TVs last week when it released iOS 17.3, according to the report. This patch addressed the same problem.
Vision Pro availability details
As announced by the business, the headset, whose base model comes with 256GB of storage and costs $3,499, will be sold at all US Apple Store locations as well as online via the US Apple Store platform. It is unknown when the product will be released in India.
