Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming watchOS 10.6 update to developers for testing purposes, with the third beta coming a week after the release of the second beta.


To install the ‌watchOS 10.6 update, developers need to open the Apple Watch app, go to the Software Update section under "General" in Settings, and toggle on the watchOS 10 Developer Beta. An Apple ID linked to a developer account is required.

Once beta updates have been activated, watchOS 10.6 can be downloaded under the same Software Update section. To install software, an Apple Watch needs to have 50 percent battery life and it must be placed on an Apple Watch charger.

We don't yet know what's included in watchOS 10.6, and with Apple's focus shifting to watchOS 11, it likely features bug fixes and other minor improvements.

Yay, my SE1 isn’t quite dead in the water lol.

The battery is aging but it still lasts all day. Nice to know some bug fixes may be coming.
