  • Apple Seeds Watch OS 2 Beta 2 to Developers for Testing


    Alongside iOS 9 beta 2 and OS X 10.11 El Capitan Developer Preview 2, Apple has also seeded Watch OS 2 beta 2 to developers for testing purposes on Tuesday.

    Watch OS 2 beta 2 comes approximately two weeks after the first beta was seeded to developers following the WWDC 2015 Keynote and includes bug fixes and stability improvements, as noted by Apple in the change log.

    Watch OS 2 will bring users the ability to run native applications on the Apple Watch, having the Apple Watch do logic processing instead of waiting for the communication between the Apple Watch and iPhone to occur, which should speed things up quite a bit. Moreover, developers can make custom watch face complications, making the Apple Watch even more interesting from a glance.

    To update to the new beta, developers just have to launch the Apple Watch application on their iPhone and can install the update OTA (over the air). The entire install process is done wirelessly.

      Yes.. it looks like they've pulled it.. even on the Developer website its back to the old version. That might not be a good sign. if the battery didn't suck so bad on the beta I might want to wait a couple days..

      Double that.. I hate the Battery life on Beta 1, also have noticed frequent disconnects with the phone. Not to mention the overall sluggish response. My Watch completely freezes while using Workout App. Can't wait to upgrade to Beta 2 in hopes to resolve some of these issues. But then again they pulled Beta 2 away tells me that something major was found broken.

      Beta 2 resolves battery life issues. Now back to Watch OS2 beta..where is the update? My Watch reboots on its own, is slow at times and glitchy. I want the smoothness i had on Watch OS1. Patiently waiting.
