    Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming watchOS 5.1.2 update to developers, one week after seeding the first beta and a little over a week after releasing watchOS 5.1.1, an updated version of watchOS 5.1 that addressed a bug causing some Apple Watch Series 4 models to be bricked after installing the software.

    Once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Apple Developer Center, the new watchOS beta can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General --> Software update.

    To install the update, the Apple Watch needs to have at least 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it has to be in range of the iPhone.

    As was discovered in the first beta, the watchOS 5.1.2 update introduces new complications for the two Infograph watch faces on the Apple Watch Series 4. New complications include Mail, Messages, Home, Maps, Apple News, Find My Friends, Phone, and Remote.

    watchOS 5.1.2 also introduces a new toggle in Control Center for turning the Walkie-Talkie feature on and off.

    The previous watchOS 5.1 and watchOS 5.1 updates introduced support for Group FaceTime in an audio-only capacity, brought new emoji characters, and included a new full-screen "Color" watch face option for the Apple Watch Series 4 models.

    Wow, this is actually going to immensely improve my Apple Watch experience. I’ve been avoiding the new faces because I don’t have a Messages complication. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like it displays the number of unread, but I’ll take what I can get from Apple on the software side.

    messages is a welcomed complication. I'd really love a seconds option on the digital time displays. Also, would be great if we could have the sunset complication on the digital time info face. Only on the analog infograph right now.

    As for walkie talkie, it was an interesting gimmick, but I don't think I'll ever use it again. If you're busy and the message comes through, you miss it. I don't see a replay button. Seems we'd be better served with just a voice message back and forth. But, that might just be me.

    Can someone tell me if Podcasts are included in the new complications available for the Infograph face?

    I agree. However, can't help but feeling like they held these back from the initial WatchOS 5.0 so we could get excited about these "features" when they are actually released.:rolleyes:

    The messages complication does support unread. There’s a pic In the previous thread of last beta. The corner messages complication has the written word x Unread , & presumably the larger round complication supports the number too , although not seen a pic of this.

    The round messages complication does indeed include a number inside the bubble for unread messages.

    Perfect , thanks for clarifying.

    All I would like now is the Alarm complication for modular infograph face & my watch will start to look complete.

    Podcasts would be nice too , however I use a 3rd party app & complication for this that works very nicely.

    Cheers.

    It does display the unread number, it just takes a minute to show it. Don’t know if this new beta improves that or not or not.

    I thought I was the only one waiting for sunrise/sunset complication. I’ve gotten too used to having it on the previous watches.

    It's with the Apple wireless charger and everything else they announce which turns up two years later.

    My wish for S3 is to include new watch faces as shown in the rectangular frame in the picture above. It definitely is possible for Apple to come up with S4 equivalent faces for S3 that fit the screen. For example, it could easily S4 40mm face on S3 42mm face, there is enough screen space to do that. But Apple won't do it, Apple acts as if the only thing that makes S4 differentiate is the watch faces on S4, and it's not and it's more than that.
