Do you remember the excitement when Apple first introduced Memoji? It was a sensation in the digital world, allowing people to express themselves through fun and personalized avatars. But imagine being able to showcase your true self, while wearing your Apple Vision Pro. That’s where Persona comes in, a groundbreaking feature that allows your facial expressions and hand gestures to come to life, making virtual interactions more authentic and captivating. Let us guide you on how to create your very own Persona on Apple Vision Pro.

How to Create Your Persona

Creating a Persona on Apple Vision Pro is more complex than Memoji. It may take some time and require a slightly longer setup process. Follow the simplified steps below to craft your unique Persona.

1. First, head to Settings, select Persona, and pinch your fingers while focusing on Get Started.

2. Since Persona visualizes your face and your hands, you have to first show your hand in front of your Apple Vision Pro, and that will capture more details of your hands for your Persona.

6. You will receive guidance to turn your head in different directions and make various expressions while holding the Apple Vision Pro in front of you. In case you can’t hear the instructions, don’t worry! Visuals on the front display will also appear to guide you through the process.

  • Directional arrows: Rotate your head in the indicated direction with a gentle motion.
  • Four rings: Maintain a closed mouth while displaying a smile.
  • Three rings: Display a wide smile with your teeth visible.
  • Two rings: Lift your eyebrows.
  • One ring: Take a brief moment to close your eyes.
  • No rings: Put back your Apple Vision Pro.

8. If you cannot perform one of the facial expressions, double-click the Digital Crown to skip that expression and move on to further instructions.

9. When you’ve captured your Persona, you can edit it by tweaking the lighting, temperature, and brightness. If you wear glasses, you can include them to make your Persona resemble you more closely.

10. When you are finished making changes, tap Save. Your Persona is ready to use with video calling services like FaceTime, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom.

Pro Tips for Creating Your Persona

While attempting to create a Persona on the Apple Vision Pro, we faced a few obstacles that prevented us from completing it. Therefore, here are some helpful tips to ensure a smooth Persona creation process.

1. Ensure that you position yourself in a well-lit area where your face receives even illumination while avoiding shadows.

2. Position yourself in front of a neutral background that doesn’t have too many distracting details.

3. Take your time to prepare yourself before capturing your image. The Vision Pro will only start capturing once it faces you at eye level.

4. Your device securely stores your encrypted Persona, accessible only through Optic ID or your chosen passcode in the settings. Turning off Optic ID will result in permanent deletion of your Persona.

5. During Travel Mode or FaceTime calls, the Apple Vision Pro disables Persona capture and editing. Furthermore, the Guest User feature prevents access to your Persona.

Pro Tip: You can connect your Apple Vision Pro to a Mac and create a focused environment to work.

Customize or Recapture Your Persona on Apple Vision Pro

The Persona feature on Apple Vision Pro is currently in beta. Due to this, your Persona may not appear perfect upon initial recording. Some users have mentioned that the hands on the Apple Vision Pro may look disproportionate to the face.

If you want to adjust your existing Persona, navigate to Settings on your Vision Pro and choose Persona. Then, select Edit Details or Recapture from the menu to customize the appearance. Once finished, select Save.
