Apple has seeded to developers tvOS 10.1.1 beta 2 for Apple TV and watchOS 3.1.3 beta 2 for Apple Watch. Here are the details.
The release of both seeds come approximately four weeks after Apple issued the first beta to developers, giving those registered on the Apple Developer Program an opportunity to look into the latest changes, additions and release notes stating improvements.
watchOS 3.1.3 Beta 2
Any developer with an Apple Watch and with access to a developer account for installation purposes, will already be well aware of the initiaql beta of watchOS 3.1.3 didn’t bring any major changes or outward-facing enhancements for users to sink their teeth into. Fortunately, it seems the same can be said this time around with Apple treating beta 2 as an opportunity to make additional under-the-hood improvements in pursuit of a more streamlined and pleasurable Apple Watch experience.
If any additional changes or feature and security additions do come to light, then we will bring them directly to the table for you. For now, watchOS 3.1.3 beta 2 can be downloaded and installed to the Apple Watch by using the already known iPhone app and heading to the Software Update mechanism (General > Software Update).
tvOS 10.1.1 Beta 2
Granted to developers again. Beta 2 of tvOS 10.1.1 is carrying on where the original beta left off. Apple is not bringing any major changes, functionality improvements or outward-facing additions to the table with this latest pre-release, but nevertheless it is using the latest platform upgrades to push the fourth-generation Apple TV hardware a bit forward. However, this is very much an incremental upgrade that will completely look to fix a number of bugs and potential security risks, but that will also pave the way for the next big tvOS update with new feature inclusions.
As always, those with an Apple TV 4, running a beta configuration profile, will be able to head to uUpdate mechanism in Settings and grab the newer beta as an over-the-air update. For those who want to make fresh install, it’s possible to grab the latest IPSW directly from Apple and install to the Apple TV using a USB-A to USB-C cable. and iTunes too.
