The third pre-release beta 3 seeds of tvOS 10.2 for Apple TV 4 and watchOS 3.2 for all Apple Watch models are now live and available to download for all compatible devices.

The new seeds released today provide developers with yet another opportunity to not only see how those platforms are progressing, but to also give feedback on any issues or bugs found to ensure smooth future development.

tvOS 10.2 Beta 3

We would have loved to tell you that tvOS 10.2 is full of fantastic improvements and an array of new features for consumers, but that just isn’t the case. tvOS 10.2 is instead all about under-the-hood performance improvements and framework developments such as accelerated schooling support for apps built on top of UIKit and TVMLKit. Apple has also added the VideoToolBox framework for developers to breed a whole new array of video-centric apps.

Registered developers, who are also owners of a fourth-generation Apple TV, are able to grab the latest beta right now. For those new to tvOS betas will need a USB-C to USB-A cable to install the latest update via iTunes. Though those with an existing beta already installed are able to grab the latest seed as an over-the-air update through Apple TV’s Settings menu.

watchOS 3.2 Beta 3

The latest beta version of watchOS 3.2 brings with it a new “Theater Mode” designed to make Apple Watch a lot more usable in dark environments, such as a cinema, or, well a movie theater. There’s also internal improvements to SiriKit for third-party apps to make that experience a lot more pleasurable and powerful via Apple Watch.

Apple Watch owners can grab the latest watchOS 3.2 beta 3 seed right now by downloading the firmware update through the accompanying Watch app on the connected iPhone with configuration profile for watchOS installed.

Update x1: Apple has now also seeded macOS 10.12.4 beta 3 to developers. You can find more details on it here.
