Apple publishes the first beta of watchOS 3.2

Today, Apple has released a new beta update of the upcoming watchOS 3.2 for developers. WatchOS 3.2 comes more than three months after the release of watchOS 3.1, the first major upgrade to the Cupertino company's smartwatch operating system and one week after the release of watchOS 3.1.3.

The recent release of watchOS 3.2 beta can be downloaded through the dedicated application of Apple Watch on the iPhone, for this you have to go to General -> software update. To install the update, it is important that the Apple Watch should have the 50 percent battery, should be placed in the charger, and should be within reach of the iPhone. On the other hand, iOS 10 or later is also required and the appropriate configuration profile.

As mentioned earlier, watchOS 3.2 requires an iPhone with iOS 10 installed and is only available to developers . At the moment, Apple does not make watchOS betas available to the public, as it is not possible to downgrade the software on an Apple Watch.

Before releasing watchOS 3.2, the company shared some details about what is included in the update with the developers. For example, watchOS 3.2 includes a "theater mode" designed so that customers can mute the sound in their Apple Watch and deactivate "Raise to Wake", preventing the screen from lighting up with arm movement.

The theater mode, originally introduced in watchOS 3.1.3, is available in watchOS 3.2. Customers are still able to receive notifications based on haptic feedback, and can view information by tapping the screen or pressing on the digital crown.

This watchOS 3.2 update also brings SiriKit to Apple Watch , allowing people to ask Siri to do things like send messages, send payments, book a trip, record a workout, make a call or search through photos. SiriKit has been available on iOS devices since the launch of iOS 10, but is new to Apple Watch.
