Apple announced watchOS 7 in June at WWDC 2020, but the official release is only expected this fall. Developers already have access to watchOS 7 beta, and today, Apple made the update available through Apple’s Public Beta Program. Now, we want to know if you are already trying watchOS 7 on your Apple Watch or if you have decided to wait until the fall.
watchOS 7 brings new looking faces and long-awaited features like multiple complications of the same app and sleep tracking. The update also enables more types of exercises, and even detects when you are washing your hands to show a 20-second count, which helps users wash their hands properly to eliminate germs.
While iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and even tvOS have beta for developers and the public, Apple has only offered pre-release versions of watchOS for developers. This year, however, the company announced that the preview of tvOS 7 will also be available as a public beta for the first time.
The company had promised to release the first public viewing betOSOS 7 in July, but it was delayed until this week. Apple has not discussed the delay, but this is probably because the company wanted to be sure that users would not experience any serious problems with the program.
Since the Apple Watch does not have a USB connection, users cannot connect it to a computer in order to reset the software if something does not work. Viewing humiliationOS is also not possible, so the only way to fix a software problem on your Apple Watch is by taking it to an Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP).
It’s worth noting that watchOS 7 requires an Apple Watch Series 3 or later, so the Apple Watch Series 1and Apple Watch Series 2 were both discontinued this year.
