Sina digital news on the morning of August 11, apple officially released the first public beta of watchos 7 today. This is also the first time in the history of watchos to issue a public beta to all users.
if you want to experience it, you can use the iPhone paired with the watch to open the device. After the mobile phone receives the public beta version description file, the apple watch system will be updated.
the mobile phone itself must also be IOS 14 (public beta or developer beta) so that it can pair with watchos 7; after upgrading
the watch cannot be downgraded back to watchos 6. (because it doesn’t have a power line, it can’t be forced to use DFU mode like a mobile phone)
this is Apple’s first public beta version of watchos. In the past, other systems had “developer beta” and “public beta”. The former was for developers, and the latter was for general user experience. However, watchos only had developer beta.
“the watchos public beta update is still in the development stage, so some applications and services may not work as expected, and their data may not be backward compatible. Applewatch content is automatically backed up to the paired iPhone. You can learn more about applewatch backup here. Please note that once the public beta is installed, applewatch will not be able to restore to the previously released version of the operating system. ”
in addition, Apple has warned that voiceover voice assist will not work properly in the latest watchos 7 beta. This feature usually helps blind people use the apple watch. If you rely heavily on this feature, do not update to beta.
watchos 7 has added a variety of new functions to Apple watch, such as hand washing monitoring due to the new epidemic situation, new dial sharing and sleep monitoring, etc., while the forging energy has added dance exercise and improved calorie tracking.
