Apple today seeded the fifth beta of watchOS 4.3 for testing on the Apple Watch before an initial public release sometime this spring. This comes a week after the fourth beta was released for testing.

To install the beta, 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 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.

In watchOS 4.3, users can expect a portrait-oriented Nightstand Mode for when your Apple Watch is charging vertically, better control of music playback on your iPhone, and a new charging animation. There’s also, of course, bug fixes and security improvements. We’ll let you know of any other changes along the way.
