Apple Seeds First Beta of watchOS 3.2.2 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming watchOS 3.2.2 update to developers for testing purposes, one day after the launch of watchOS 3.2, a major update that introduced Theater Mode.

watchOS 3.2.2 can be downloaded through the Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General --> Software Update. To install the update, the Apple Watch must have 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it must be in range of the iPhone.


watchOS betas require an iPhone running iOS 10 to install, and they're only available to developers because there's no way to downgrade the software on an Apple Watch.

It's not yet clear if watchOS 3.2.2 introduces any new features or bug fixes because Apple doesn't typically provide release notes for betas, but we'll update this post should anything new be discovered.

Given that this is a minor 3.x.x update, it's likely to focus primarily on bug fixes.

Worst way to ship software. Blast things out. Fix stuff later. I miss Steve and Scott.


The most recent update was in testing for several months..not exactly "blasting things out."

There were plenty of bugs and plenty of software updates back when Scott and Steve were around. Not sure why selective memory exists in such an extreme way.

Jeez, Apple can't even release a beta anymore without criticism from armchair developers.

You miss iOS 4.2.6 through 4.2.10, as well as 4.3 through 4.3.5?

If you hold everything until perfection there will be no updates released.

Interestingly enough, your comment still correlates to what everybody else was responding to. However Ironic is that?

Point is, what that forum member stated is incorrect and exaggerated. Several months with Seven betas is not equivalent to blasting things out. When you pedal reality distortion, then be prepared for feedback.
