    I've downloaded both profiles (iPhone/Watch) and installed Public Beta iOS 10 on my iPhone 6 but Watch App not showing up the WatchOS 3 upgrade. How I can solve this?
    Already tried rebooting and reinstalling the profile.

    Is the watchOS beta part of the public beta? It wasn't last time.

    There is no public beta for watchOS. Only way to get watchOS 3 beta is through a developer account.

    Watch OS is not available for public beta. The profile was able to be downloaded but that's it. Apple will supposedly make it available sometime in July.

    There's no watchOS beta and will not be... When you install the Public Beta profile, it gives you the option to install on the watch but that's not the watchOS3 beta, only iOS... There's no public way to downgrade if the watch dies so they "probably" aren't going to ever release a public beta...

    There is no public beta for watchOS 3 and Apple Watch has a separate configuration profile that only developers have access to. Although you *can* find it as some websites host the file which gives you access to the beta. Although from my experience so far, it makes the battery sink like a stone but it actually very stable.

    Oh is it actually going to be available? The reason I ask is because you could download the Apple Watch beta profile with the iOS 9 beta too, but they never actually released a public beta for watchOS 2. I assumed this was just going to be the case with watchOS 3 too.

    The watch os beta profile is from a different web page than the iPhone public profile. Are you sure you didn't just install the iOS beta profile on to the watch? Because the public iOS beta profile can be installed on to the watch too. The watch os profile is called "watchOS Beta Software Profile."

    Go to your watch app and see what profile was installed.

    Longer than a few more days, you'll have to wait until mid-september(ish) when it's released to general public with iOS10.

    There will not be a Public Beta for the Watch. It will not happen until you can downgrade the watch at home without shipping it to Apple. Apple never said there was going to be a watch PB, only iOS/macOS.

    There will not be a public beta for the watch.

    You just want to hope you don't get an issue where it needs downgrading or anything, as only way is to send it back to Apple, which you can only do on the developer program, I believe.

    It's fine when you can relatively easy to backtrack, but the watch is too much of a risk if you've not signed up properly. If you're wanting to test the watch beta, better off signing up properly, so the risk is mitigated.

    I've used betas since iOS 3, so I know the fun and games, but with the watch, I'm not taking the gamble, never know, Apple might start refusing to fix it for non-devs. I can also tell you that most unofficial beta users never give feedback apart from complaining on macrumors.

    The ability to use AutoLock on my iMac won't be available, I'm assuming, until the full release of ios10 and watchOS3, right?

    Auto unlock working for me now. Little bit flakey though (sometimes I still have to put in the password after it attempts to unlock)
