Apple Seeds First Beta of watchOS 4.3.1 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming watchOS 4.3.1 update to developers, a little under one week after releasing watchOS 4.3, a major update that introduced portrait Nightstand mode and iPhone music controls on Apple Watch.

Once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Apple Developer Center, the new watchOS beta can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General –> Software update.


To install the update, the Apple Watch needs to have at least 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it has to be in range of the iPhone.

It’s not yet clear what new features will be introduced in the watchOS 4.3.1 update, but it’s likely to include bug fixes for issues that have been discovered since the release of watchOS 4.3.

Should we find any new features in the watchOS 4.4 beta, we’ll update this post.
