    Hello,

    I am on the verge of registering my UDID on a developer account to get watch OS 3 (I'm fine if it glitches all over).

    Could a developer check the Apple support page related to OS downgrade?
    Is the downgrade process same as WatchOS2 (where the watch had to be sent to Apple)?

    thanks!

    It's highly annoying when non-developers sign up to just to get non public betas meant to be tested only by developers, then come here to ask moronic questions.

    What dues? I don't know of any dues I pay as I'm not a developer.

    I'm not seeing it specificly stated anywhere - but does one need ios10 on a phone to get watchos3 to run/work properly?

    I want to go to watchos3, but not ios10

    Imore has a blogpost that specifies ios10 is required to install it.
    But maybe ios10 can be downgraded after?

    What do you even care? its not like you are forced to read their questions, let alone answer them.

    I'm allowed to express my opinion that I find them annoying. They usually leave out the fact that they're using a beta when coming here to request help with a particular problem. "Hey, does anyone else have this problem?" in the OP without even bothering to mention they're using a beta, then later on when we find out we're like "Duh, you're using a beta."

    Sure, you are allowed to do it. But if something, that you can easily avoid, annoys you, why would you do it?
    In this case though, it was pretty clear, it was a question about a beta, so I'm not sure, what your anecdote has to do with it...

    Correct in this case. However, many non-developers who install the non-public beta don't bother to say they're using a beta when posting a problem, and they are who I find annoying.

    Unfortunate that there's no way to restore an Apple Watch as easily as an iPhone, etc. Would try out watchOS 3 in a second if it was possible.

    I wouldn't recommend you downgrade your phone to ios9 as there will be api's in iOS 10 specifically required for the watch to run wos3 effectively.
