watchOS 6.1.1 Beta 1, tvOS 13.3 Beta 1 Released For Apple Watch, Apple TV
Apple has released a slew of new betas today with watchOS 6.1.1 beta 1 and tvOS 13.3 beta 1 among them.
Both updates are available to developers now and we’d expect to see more beta releases land in the coming weeks.
Starting with watchOS 6.1.1, not an awful lot is known about what has gone into this release. Apple doesn’t tend to put big feature changes into these point updates, instead preferring to work on making sure that as many bugs and performance issues are worked out as possible.
Anyone with a beta profile installed can get the update by opening the Apple Watch app on their iPhone and going to General > Software Update. The Apple Watch also needs to be near the iPhone, be connected to the charger, and have at least 50% of battery remaining.
The Apple TV update to tvOS 13.3 beta 1 is much the same story. At the time of writing, little is known about it, other than the fact that it has been released. Again, Apple tends to save the big tvOS changes for its annual refresh but with a new Apple TV device rumored to be in the cards, it’s possible support for that is being added here.
Anyone with an Apple TV registered as a development device can install the update via the usual method.
As is the case with all betas, please only install these if you have a development device. While huge changes aren’t likely, that doesn’t mean that new bugs won’t be introduced. Proceed with caution.
