Apple Seeds Devs with Beta 5 of watchOS 3


Following the release of the fight builds of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, Apple has released beta 5 of watchOS 3 to developers for testing. This comes just one week after the fourth beta of the upcoming software update for the Apple Watch was seeded to the same party.

Not much is different between beta 4 and 5 of watchOS 3 other than the usual bug fixes, however if we find anything notably different, we’ll let you know. You can also send in your tips to [email protected] or tweet them @MBEDDEDMaximum.

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 5 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.
