Apple’s Now Rolling Out watchOS 3 Beta 4 to Developers


Following the release of the latest builds of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, Apple has begun seeding users with developer accounts the fourth beta of watchOS 3. This comes two weeks after the third iteration of the future update for the Apple Watch came out.

There’s a very small list of release notes for the fourth beta of watchOS 3, however they’re still worth noting here.

Emergency SOS

If the system volume is turned all the way down when you trigger Emergency SOS, alert tones are heard.


• Complication bundles now appear in the Face Gallery in iOS Simulator.

• Time travel is now useable in watchOS Simulator

watchOS 3 is already bringing 7x faster speeds to your Apple Watch alongside a new Dock UI, Control Center, improved Messages app, a Breathe app for stress relief, new fitness features, fresh watch faces, and much more.

To install beta 4 of watchOS 3 on your Apple Watch, you must be a registered developer and have your Watch plugged in. Then, navigate to the Watch app on your paired iPhone and tap the “My Watch” tab. From there, go to General > Software Update and you should see the updated build ready for download. Be sure to place your iPhone on Wi-Fi while downloading this software as it’ll surely gobble up plenty of your data.

We’ll update this post if we learn anything new and notable about the fourth beta of watchOS 3. You can learn more about watchOS 3 itself here.
