    Was wondering if theres a way to download the beta software for Apple Watch without the developer id, had it on my watch at one point but uninstalled and now can't find the site to which I downloaded the profile

    Be a good boy and send in your bug reports as you find them in the beta. Help out the rest of us who are waiting for the public release.



    Oh, that's not your plan?

    Mm patronising how nice.

    To be honest the beta is working great. My watch has crashed once in a week and the batter is holding up really well.

    You didn't realise that Macrumors is home of the users that get on their high horse when betas are involved? lol I've not seen a thread involving a beta on here where someone hasn't made some snarky comment like that.

    I just think it's stupid when people complain about their beta installs doing beta things, like crashing or data loss, especially when they have no experience or knowledge about testing or debugging software.

    It's not hard at all to get a developer account, either. Why not participate in the process?

    I think it's stupid when people complain about beta users and make assumptions about whether they know anything about testing or whether they're going to report bugs.

    How do you know the person isn't going to submit bugs? Majority of threads I see on here from people using the beta isn't to complain about data loss and that, but more people wanting to see if their issue is common place, or unique. A lot report those issues.

    I'm not saying there aren't daft people putting betas on too and making silly comments, but they're the minority.

    Apple haven't put the Watch in public beta yet and some people don't want to fork out $99 just for that. I didn't last year, but still I joined in with others discussing our issues and experiences and reported bugs to Apple.

    I'm a gambler so I install beta but won't complain. I do beta and dev work all day every day for my job and I love to play and try things. This beta version works great.

    Oh, we do. What I, and others on this forum don't enjoy is condescending numpties like you coming into beta threads and complaining about beta users that aren't in the program. Doing it doesn't accomplish anything and it's not against forum rules to talk about betas.

    Maybe someone here can help me. Running iOS 10 and installed the watch OS profile but the watch won't find the os3 update. Am I missing something? IMG_2040.PNG IMG_2041.PNG

    When that has happened to me in the past, I just deleted the profile and reinstalled with a reboot in between

    Not sure what you're talking about because all wOS betas have been non-public betas.

    As the moderator posted, posting download links to beta software is not permitted. With that being said I'm sure there are some other sites out there where you could get the watchOS 3 beta configuration profile. Google could be your friend here.

    I downloaded iOS 10 without one. DinoD7 on YouTube will help

    EDIT: apparently even tho it has a watch option, it only installs iOS beta profiles

    A prime example of why its important to pay attention. I had not even looked at the date and assumed it was written. We all know what they say about assuming.

    Are you a paid developer? If not, that's what it'll show but it won't let you install the wOS beta.

    Still stands as we've never had a public wOS beta.

    iOS 10 beta is a public beta. None of the wOS betas have been public and they require you to be a paid developer in order to install them.

    This is how the profiles should look like in your apple watch app. I had to install a separate watchOS 3 configuration profile in order to get the download. Using the iOS beta configuration profile will not work, at least in my case it didn't.
