Members of the beta testing program will be able to install watchOS in beta version on their Apple Watch
During the keynote launch of the WWDC, Apple announced that the operating system for its connected watches would soon appear in the beta-testing program. This is now a reality, a first since the launch of the OS in 2015. Until now, only developers could dive into the beta versions of watchOS.
Members of Apple's beta software program will be able to install the beta versions of watchOS on their Apple Watch and thus test the new features before anyone else.
Registration for the program is still possible
While watchOS is new to the program, the new version is not yet available for download at this time. Apple has not yet released the public versions of its new OS. In anticipation, you can always sign up for Apple's beta software program and get your hands on an old Apple Watch that will be dedicated to testing the watchOS beta.
These beta versions of the operating systems are not stable, so installing them on your everyday device is not a good idea. This could cause bugs on the iPhone, iPad, Mac or the Apple Watch. It is advisable to use an old device that will be dedicated to test the operating systems under development. Also note that members of the beta-testing program are invited by Apple to provide feedback on their experience and to indicate possible bugs via a form.
The first beta version of watchOS 7 is expected to be released very soon by Apple. The Californian firm had announced July as the month of the public beta launch.
