    Apple today released watchOS 4.3.2, a small update to the watchOS 4 operating system that runs on the Apple Watch. watchOS 4.3.2 comes more than one month after the release of watchOS 4.3.1, a minor update.

    watchOS 4.3.2 can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General --> Software Update. To install the new software, the Apple Watch needs to have at least 50 percent battery, it needs to be placed on a charger, and it needs to be in range of the iPhone.

    As a 4.x.x update, watchOS 4.3.2 is minor in scale, focusing on bug fixes and under the hood performance improvements. No major new features were discovered during the beta testing period.

    watchOS 4.3.2 may be one of the last updates to the watchOS 4 operating system now that Apple has shifted its focus to watchOS 5. watchOS 5 is available to developers and will see a public release this fall.

    Introduced at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June, watchOS 5 brings a push-to-talk Walkie-Talkie mode, support for automatic workout detection, a Podcasts app, new features for the Siri watch face, and more. For full details on what's coming in watchOS 5, make sure to check out our watchOS 5 roundup.

    Hopefully 4.3.2 fixes the battery drain issues I've been having on my series 3 ever since 4.3.1 dropped.

    Is there anyone else that can't check for this update that's running iOS 12 on their iPhone? It gives me the popup "Could Not Connect to Apple Watch" when I try to check for this... But my watch is definitely connected to my iPhone

    Have you checked apps and which set of alerts you’re getting on your watch? I’ll bet that’s te source of your battery drain ~ unless you’re gaining Super Mario Go on the watch??

    • Delete the Beta Profile from the iPhone
    • Reboot the iPhone
    • You now can install watchOS 4.3.2
    • Install the Beta Profile again on your iPhone
    • Reboot your iPhone

    Is this the normal expected way to upgrade an S0 Apple Watch or just a work around?

    It‘s normal if you have installed iOS 12 Beta. I had the same „Problem“ last year whith an Update of watchOS 3 and iOS Beta 11 installed on the Phone.
    So it‘s an expected workaround. ;)

    That happened to me as well. I rebooted watch and phone again then it worked for me.

    Rebooted both devices after deleting Beta Profile, but I’ll try again.

    i've got the same issue - force quit watch app and restarted iphone and watch - still wont 'connect' even though the watch shows that it's connected to my phone and all other services seem to work.

    You’ve deleted the Beta Profile per post #7? Took me a couple of reboots to get it to install.

    Same here. Called Apple to ask if this was a known error- they said "No" and suggested I go through the lengthy unpair- re-pair process.
    Wish I'd read your comments about same experience before that :(

    I haven't been successful yet either, despite deleting the iOS 12 beta profile and then rebooting my iPhone 7 three times and my Watch Series 2 twice. I am *not* unpairing and repairing. I'll wait for Watch OS 5 to be released before I do that.

    First time an update hasn’t gone smoothly for me.

    Finally started installing after multiple re-boots. Pardon my ignorance but how do I reinstall iOS 12 Beta Profile? Do I need to re-sign up for the Beta Program and reinstall iOS 12 Beta?

    Removing the iOS 12b profile and rebooting worked for me (iphone X and AW S2).

    There was a bug in one of the Watch OS 4 betas that required unpairing and pairing for me and many others, but that was a Watch OS beta, not a regular update with the paired iPhone on a beta. I'm not planning on testing the Watch OS 5 beta for a while.
