Apple has found it appropriate to release watchOS 7 beta 4 and tvOS beta 4 to developers for compatible Apple Watch and Apple TV models. If you are a developer, you can now download the latest beta on your devices. The latest beta comes almost two weeks after the release of beta 3 for developers. Are we looking at new features in the latest build? Let’s find out.
Apple releases watchOS 7 and tvOS 14 to developers for testing purposes
If you want to install watchOS 7 beta 4 on your Apple Watch, you have a correct configuration profile of the Apple Developer Center. The beta comes with an abundance of bug fixes and performance improvements. To install the beta, you need to do the following:
- Launch the special Watch app on your iPhone.
- Go to General and select Software Update.
- Tap Download and Install once it’s refreshed.
In addition to watchOS 7 beta 4, Apple has also released tvOS 14 beta 4 with bug fixes and developer performance improvements. Usually tvOS betas are quite small in regards to the number of features it brings to the table. We now suspect that it will not yield any major forward-looking additions to the mix. If you are interested, the tvOS 14 beta 4 can be installed on your compatible Apple TV model using a profile installed via Xcode.
At this point, it may be too early to ask if the new beta 4 has forward-facing additions on both watchOS 7 and tvOS 14. We will wait for developers to tinker with the new builds. We will update you as soon as we have a message.
Apple has also released iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 beta 4 for developers, so check that out. Read more about watchOS 7 and tvOS 14 in our announcement messages:
