Apple has released the first watchOS 6.1 developers beta alongside macOS Catalina Beta 9. Just a week ago, Apple released watchOS 6 to the public.

Firstly you need to configure your Apple Watch and install the profile from Apple Developer Center. Once done the watchOS 6.1 beta can be downloaded and installed via the Apple Watch app on the iPhone. All you need to do is go to General> Software update. Meanwhile, this article will help you install watchOS 6 developer beta on your Apple Watch.

Before installing the update ensure that Apple Watch has at least 50 percent battery and is connected with your iPhone. At this point in time, we are not sure as to what new features will arrive on watchOS 6.1. Meanwhile, users are reporting that some watch faces are missing. Apple’s release notes confirm the same and mentions “some of the watch faces new to watchOS 6 aren’t currently available in watchOS 6.1 beta.”

watchOS 6 Features

App Store on Apple Watch

The biggest news in watchOS 6 is the new App Store. Developers will be able to build independent Watch apps. These apps will be installed independently on the Watch and will work without an iPhone counterpart. Nothing will be installed on the iPhone automatically.

The full Watch App Store is available here. The editor’s picks and the featured collections will do the heavy lifting here. But you can actually search manually as well. Searching using Siri dictation and scribbling works as well.

New Watch Faces

watchOS 6 has a couple of new watch faces and most of them are only available for Apple Watch Series 4. One of them is the new Solar Dial watch face. It builds on the old solar watch face by taking an analog route. There’s a special solar dial in the middle of the analog dial. You can add four complications in the corners outside the analog dial.
