    Anybody able to upgrade to watchOS 2 Beta 2? I just keep getting connection errors, even though I've downloaded the Beta 2 software

    Get the same thing here. Get a can't connect to the internet to verify error. I'm still on iOS 9 beta 1 if that matters.

    I'm looking at this - and the "configuration profile" is the same one from a couple of weeks ago... I'm thinking we shouldn't re-apply that same config file... (it's dated 6/7)

    After a few connection errors - now I'm seeing my watchos version as "up to date", but I can see the latest build isn't on there...

    According to multiple Twitter users, Apple have pulled watchOS Beta 2. I'm getting the "software is up to date" message too

    Not showing up for me either. Updated fine to 9 Beta 2, has shown "up to date" since release. I'm on a 6 Plus.

    As mentioned at the very bottom of the front page article, it appears Apple has in fact pulled the update.

    Anyone managed to get it quick enough notice anything different?

    Rumours are that they pulled it due to releasing it everyone, regardless of developer status. Major **** up if true.

    Non-dev can't install it because they would need to have iOS 9 Beta..

    This is true.

    So we don't know why they have pulled it.

    Pretty pissed off that it's been pulled today because battery life has been a big issue over the last few weeks as well as a few irritating bugs that I've reported so was hoping I'd see all these fixed today.

    I got in installed in time before the pull and it seems to be much better then beta 1. Less crashes, notifications seem to be consistent, not as slow, apps actually load now. Feels very much like WatchOS 1. Battery life seems pretty on par, but too early to tell.

    Aren't you just on edge half-expecting your Watch to explode?

    My Watch's battery isn't as good as it was under 1.0.1, but its not horrible. I take it off after 16 hours or so and it still has 20% of battery left. However, the amount of bugs is really high. Siri rarely works anymore regardless of how I suspended her. That is ridiculous, but its a dev beta so to be expected. I just wish there was a way to downgrade the Watches. The only home is to wait until it the beta gets better.

    LOL. Maybe. As long as at some point they give a fix, it's not a big deal for me. Just happy that it's better than beta 1
