Anyone else’s Apple Watch dying FAST on the latest iOS 13 public beta?

Yes, there is a thread dedicated to this in the iOS13 beta thread. I myself had the same issue as do tons of other people. There is no fix right now outside of waiting for another beta or removing the beta and going back to iOS 12.

Standard beta roulette. My iPhone and iPad are dying as I look at the battery indicator. Oddly my watch is doing OK on this one but....next beta is....well spin the wheel of unknowns.

Yeah, I noticed that thread right after I made mine.

This issue seems to have improved greatly on my Series 4 with the latest beta versions: iOS 13 Beta 5, WatchOS 6 Beta 4

I thought it was just me. My watch has been draining super fast since installing public beta. I can't even make it through a full day now without giving it a little bump when I get home from work

It’s been reported in mainstream media.

Uh, everyone does know that betas can be buggy? That’s why they’re called ‘betas’. iOS 13 PB beta 2 broke airdrop, among other things, on my Gen 1 iPad Pro. No complaints, it’s a beta!

Yes I have always fancied signing up and getting my hands on software early through betas, but it’s things like this that put me off.

It's because the Developer Preview and Public Beta releases are not early access to the upcoming software. It's beta. It's buggy. It's inconsistent. It's (primarily) for developers to test their apps against the new version. Too many people just hop on the train to get access to the new version early. They are often sorry they did so. (Not making any assumptions here, just a generic "caveat emptor" kind of disclosure.)

And to keep this on topic, to the OP, yes... plenty of people have complained in a number of threads. (Forum Search can come in real handy sometimes.)

Yes I understand what a beta is, I was just saying that the bugs in them stop me from signing up.
