This afternoon Apple has released the watchOS 6 beta, so that developers can check the correct operation of their apps on the Apple watch. Apple wants to get watchOS 6 up and running before its launch.
For this reason, it advances the release of the betas. We generally have a beta every other week, but watchOS 6 beta 6 comes just a week later beta 5. Apple introduced watchOS 6 at the last Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, which was held in early June. In the following hours the first betas arrived.
As always, installation of the betas requires a developer profile. This can be obtained from the Apple Developer Center. Once configured, all access the application of the Apple Watch of the iPhone. Once open, we must go to General and Software Update. Remember that the Apple Watch has to have at least 50% of the battery and leave the Apple Watch inside the iPhone scope which acts as a server.
We will surely have the final version of watchOS 6 in the central weeks of September. watchOS 6 is loaded with new features and features compared to the previous version. To make things easier, watchOS 6 has a own app store, giving the clock autonomy with respect to the iPhone. We can search for the specific applications for the Apple Watch and download them directly from the watch.
All of this is possible thanks to new API that Apple makes available to developers. Apple wants to encourage developers to provide their watch with all kinds of applications, without having to depend on the iPhone. This less dependency means that the installation does not depend on the iPhone, but neither does it depend on its use. For example, we can run training applications or play music without having the iPhone near us. In addition, Apple will release new spheres in watchOS 6, some of them with large numbers. and others that imitate highly prestigious analog watch faces. Other new applications available: wind speed, Possibility of rain, the application to record voice notes or just activate the calculator we have on iOS.
