Recently, Apple released watchOS 4.3 to the public, and now the company is following that up with a new beta seed of an upcoming update.
Today, Apple seeded the second developer beta of watchOS 4.3.1. The new pre-release software is available to registered developers. They will need to make sure that the necessary configuration profile has been installed before they will be able to download and install the pre-release software to test out.
To update, the Apple Watch needs to have at least 50 percent battery, it needs to be charging, and it has to be connected to the iPhone. For developers who already have the registered configuration profile installed, they can find the new software by going to the Watch app on their iPhone, then opening General –> Software Update.
At the time of publication, it is not known what is new in the pre-release software. However, considering watchOS 4.3 was just released and welcomed new features like Portrait Mode for Nightstand Mode, as well as a few other additions, this new software is probably just meant to address any behind-the-scenes issues that have cropped up since the public launch of watchOS 4.3 last week.
If any new features are discovered in the new software, though, we will update this post accordingly. There will likely not be a public beta of watchOS 4.3.1, so the public will have to wait until Apple releases watchOS 4.3.1 out of beta to try out the new software.
For registered developers, the new beta is now available to download and install.
