Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming watchOS 7.6 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new beta coming two weeks after the release of the fourth beta.

To install the ‌watchOS 7.6 beta, developers need to download the proper configuration profile from the Apple Developer Center. Once the profile is in place, the watchOS beta can be downloaded through the dedicated ‌Apple Watch‌ app on the iPhone by going to General > Software Update.

To update to the new software, the ‌Apple Watch‌ needs to have 50 percent battery life, it must be placed on the charger, and it must be in range of the ‌‌‌‌‌‌‌iPhone‌‌‌‌‌‌‌.

We don't yet know what's included in the watchOS 7.6 update, and no new features were discovered in the first four betas, so it's likely the software focuses on bug fixes and other under-the-hood performance improvements.

Very interesting to me that MacOS and iOS dev and public betas dropped same time, but WatchOS is dev only. Curious if that was intentional.

The release version just came out (I got a notification on my S4, about ten minutes ago).
