Open Control Center

To open the Control Center on your Vision Pro:

  2. Tap near the icon to open Control Center.

The Control Center will then slide down from the top, allowing you to access various controls.

Note: The position of the Control Center icon may vary depending on what you are currently doing in Vision Pro. If you don’t see the icon, keep your head still and look towards the top until it appears.

You can customize how high or low the Control Center icon appears when you look up:

  1. Go to Settings => Control Center
  2. Use the slider under Control Center Position to set how high or low you want the icon to appear when looking up
