After the release of the second build a few weeks ago, Apple today made the third developer beta of watchOS 6 available to all eligible Apple Watch developers. The new software update will roll out to every Apple Watch user this fall, around the time the new iPhones launch.

watchOS 6 carries plenty of useful features that could come in handy. Here’s a breakdown of some of the most anticipated ones.

  • New watch faces
  • New complications powered by Siri
  • Shazam integration with Siri
  • Webpage-powered responses to Siri questions
  • Dedicated App Store
  • New Audiobooks app
  • New Calculator app
  • Animoji stickers in messages
  • Activity Trends to track your progress over time
  • Menstrual cycle tracking
  • Hearing health tracking
  • All-new Health app on Watch and iPhone

The new software can be installed by going to the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and searching for a new software update. You’ll have to have your Apple Watch connected to its charger in order for the update to install.
