Apple has seeded the seventh beta of watchOS 5 for testing on the Apple Watch before an initial release of the software to the public in the fall. This comes a week after the sixth build was released to registered developers.
watchOS 5 includes a handful of improvements and new features that will make the Apple Watch a better overall companion to your iPhone. It includes new workout modes and automatic workout detection, a fun little walkie-talkie app, Siri Shortcuts support, an Apple Podcasts app, grouped notifications, and more. The update is essentially a bucket full of refinements, similar to iOS 12, that aim to make your experience better.
If you’d like to give watchOS 5 beta 7 a go on your wrist, head over to the Apple Watch app on your iPhone. From there, access the Software update section and hit “Download and install” under the listing. You’ll need to have your Apple Watch on the charging puck to install the new beta to ensure you don’t run out of juice during the process.
