Download links for both watchOS 3 beta 1 and tvOS 10 beta 1 are now available for developers to download and install on their Apple Watch and the fourth-generation Apple TV.
This in turn gives developers so much more to sink their teeth into immediately after the opening keynote. Following on from earlier announcements, Apple has finally made the first pre-release beta 1 seeds of watchOS 3 for Apple Watch and tvOS 10 for Apple TV available to download and test for those with the necessary privileges.
Developers who are registered and enrolled members of the developer.apple.com will not only be looking to test the reliability and stability of the two platforms. but nevertheless, also utilize new technologies to ensure that they have cutting-edge apps available for the public release later this year.
Form a compatibility perspective, it’s worth mentioning that Apple TV owners never need to get exited unless it’s a new fourth-generation set-top box that they are running, tvOS 10 is the firmware that powers the latest Apple TV 4, and can only be installed on those particular devices.
watchOS 3, as you might have guessed, is compatible with Apple’s only wearable to date. Interested in getting to grips with the latest watchOS and tvOS experience can do so by downloading and installing the beta 1 firmware files for the relevant platform.
Apple has made these downloads available through developer.apple.com, where developers will be invited to sign-in using their registered Apple ID.
A general availability expected for both platforms to go live to the public in September alongside the launch of iOS 10.
