Two weeks after the seeding out the first #Beta of #Watchos 3.2.3 to developers, #Apple is back with the second beta of the watchOS 3.2.3. The beta version of the update was rolled out specifically for testing purposes. Unless you are registered as a developer in Apple’s system, there is no way a normal user can get his/her hands on the beta update roll out.

Apple only provides these beta updates to developers since there is no way to downgrade the software on the Apple Watch. Thus, non-developers will have to invariably wait for the release of the final version of watchOS 3.2.3. The second beta update of the watchOS 3.2.2 is likely to be the last update for the operating system.

Apple Watch users and tech enthusiasts are expecting the Cupertino-based company to introduce the new edition of the watchOS at its June Worldwide Developers Conference.

Apple’s first beta update

The first beta update that was rolled out for the developers came with minor bug fixes, suggesting that most of the changes that took place may have been under the hood. The same trend has been observed for the second beta as well. At the time of writing, it was not known what changes the second beta roll out will offer.

Apple in all probability is looking to unveil the watchOS 4, the successor of the watchOS 3 wearable operating system, at the WWDC in June. The watchOS 3 was introduced almost a year back on September 13, 2016. The year-old OS brought with it an array of new features, such as the New watch faces, the Breathe app, the Control Center, Activity sharing feature, and more.

How to install the second beta update if you are a developer

For developers who are registered with Apple, to install the new beta update, they will need to ensure that their smartphone is charged up to at least 50%. During the installation process, it is important to connect the smartwatch to the charger and place it within the range of the developer’s iPhone, as the update will be transferred to the wearable through the smartphone.

The developers will then need to select Apple Watch app and go to the General options and to the Software update option subsequently. If the update is available, the developer will be alerted with a pop-up message on the screen. Follow the on-screen prompts to successfully download and install the new beta update for the watchOS 3.2.3.
