    I assume I need to update the watch to WatchOS6 beta to get the (new, but really any) Find My app on the watch? Is that correct?

    Oh, Thanks. I assumed it was always there; never really owned a watch before. Looks like it is going to be included on WatchOS 6, correct?

    I had the Find My app on my Series 4 AW on iOS12. When I went to the iOS 13 beta it disappeared. I assume (and hope) it will come back when WatchOS6 drops later this year (don't want to do a public beta on my watch)

    I used the complication daily so I hope it comes back

    Correct. Find My Friends is available on the Apple Watch pre-watchOS6 when your iPhone is pre-iOS13. If your iPhone is iOS13, you must be on watchOS6 to access the Find My app from your Apple Watch.

    As mentioned above iOS 13 and watchOS 5 showed Find My on watch

    with watchOS 6 & iOS 13 the watch shows Find My Friends app and the notifications from the phone are also Find My Friends

    Wait now I’m confused. I have iOS 13 and WatchOS 5. There is no Find My or Find My Friends app on the watch. What do you then mean by: “As mentioned above iOS 13 and watchOS 5 showed Find My on watch”? Also if I ask AWatch to find a friend it tells me it can’t.

    Believe WatchOS 6 is needed. I'm in the same boat as you

    I'm positive. I had it as a complication on my watch face. Since I updated to iOS13 I don't have it anymore so I can't show you. I'm still on Watch OS 5. I assume once I go to WatchOS 6 it will be back

    iOS 12 + watchOS 5 = Find My Friends app on the Apple Watch

    iOS 13 + watchOS 6 = Find My app on the Apple Watch

    iOS 13 + watchOS 5 = app not available on the Apple Watch

    I'm on Watch OS Beta 6 using a Series 4. I have the Find My Friends app (not Find My) on the watch and Find My on my XS Max.
