Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming watchOS 6.2.8 update to developers, one week after releasing the first beta and three weeks after releasing the watchOS 6.2.5 update with new Pride Apple Watch faces.
watchOS 6.2.8 can be downloaded for free 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.
It's not clear what's included in watchOS 6.2.8, but it likely focuses on under-the-hood performance improvements and bug fixes for issues that weren't able to be addressed in the prior update.
No new features were found in the first beta of watchOS 6.2.8, but we'll update this article should anything new be found in the second beta.
