Apple Seeds Third Beta of watchOS 3.2.3 to Developers

Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming watchOS 3.2.3 update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after seeding the second watchOS 3.2.3 beta and a month after releasing watchOS 3.2.2.

Registered developers can download the watchOS 3.2.3 update through the Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General –> Software Update. For the beta to be installed, the Apple Watch needs to have 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it has to be in range of the iPhone.


Apple restricts watchOS betas to developers because there’s no way to downgrade software on an Apple Watch. Non-developers will need to wait for the public release to get the update.

No notable features or bug fixes were discovered in the first two betas of watchOS 3.2.3, suggesting the update focuses primarily on under-the-hood improvements.

watchOS 3.2.3 is likely to be one of the last updates to the watchOS 3 operating system, as Apple has shifted its focus to the next-generation version of watchOS, watchOS 4.
