Hey, it’s me, Brian’s less creepy Apple Vision Pro Persona

Hey, it’s me, Brian’s less creepy Apple Vision Pro Persona


Hey. Sorry to call you out of the blue. No, no, nothing serious. I’m fine. I wanted to apologize for freaking you out last time. I wasn’t myself. But I’ve changed. Honestly, I don’t even know who I was back then. It was all very new. I’ve been working on myself, and I think the results speak for themselves.

I am truly a new man.

I can’t take all the credit, of course. I didn’t do this all on my own. If anything, it was the VisionOS 1.1 update that showed me that I still have the capacity to grow.  I’m a more fully realized person. Less rough around the edges. I won’t lie, I still have a lot of work to do on myself, but it’s hard to deny that things are trending in the right direction.

I can tell you agree from the fact that you’re carrying on a normal FaceTime call without stopping every few seconds to tell me how weird my Apple Vision Pro Persona looks. I wouldn’t call my new face flattering by any stretch of the imagination, but at least I kind of look like a human now. My hair still looks weird, only in a different way. My glasses are still floating, translucent silhouettes. Things still go a bit pear-shaped when I scratch my nose with my hand.

The update rolled out yesterday, and I downloaded it this morning. The headset made me re-enroll my face to get this new Persona — and frankly, it’s for the best. This version of my face is a bit less fuzzy, and my eyes aren’t nearly as dead. I’m not saying my new face definitely won’t frighten children, but I don’t think they’re going to lose much sleep over it.

I should mention that even in its 1.1 iteration, the Persona feature is still technically in beta — albeit a beta open to anyone with a Vision Pro. At the very least, that signals to me Apple’s awareness that there’s still plenty of work to be done. Life is a process.

That’s all I wanted to say, really. Thanks for listening. See you when 1.2 arrives.
