Apple introduced the first public beta of the smartwatch Apple Watch's operating system watchOS 7 to its users. Users who want to download this beta will be able to get it through Apple's beta program.
For the first time, Apple introduced the public beta for watchOS 7 to its users and allowed non-developer Apple Watch users to try the new version of the operating system.
Public beta structures can be obtained through the Apple Beta Software Program site. Users need to join the program to try these beta versions. In general, public betas are released shortly after the developer betas, but this time may be longer for massive releases, which was the case with watchOS 7.
watchOS 7 public beta released
Let us remind you that users who have upgraded their Apple Watch operating system to watchOS 7 will not return after installing this upgrade. So once you install it, there is no chance to go back to the old watchOS version. Also, participants who want to use the public beta of watchOS 7 need to upgrade their iPhone operating systems to iOS 14 beta.
Also, with this beta, watchOS 7 became the last operating system in the testing phase with its public beta. These betas have already been released for iOS 14, iPadOS 14, tvOS 14, and macOS Big Sur. On the developer beta side, Apple has released four builds for watchOS 7.
So what has Apple added to watchOS 7, which will be officially released this fall? First, the Sleep Tracking function, including features such as Wind Down, is added to create a sleep routine. Also, there is a weekly limit of listening to loud music to protect the user's sensory sensitivity. Apart from these, improvements in Apple Maps and Siri, new watch faces and watch faces sharing feature, handwashing reminders are also added.
Apple recommends that users avoid installing the beta on their priority devices due to potential data loss and various other potential issues. The company recommends installing on secondary devices after making sure there is no critical data to be lost in this regard.
