Apple Seeds Second Beta of watchOS 4.2.2 to Developers

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming watchOS 4.2.2 update to developers, one week after seeding the first beta and two weeks after releasing watchOS 4.2, an update that introduced support for Apple Pay Cash.

Once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Apple Developer Center, the new watchOS beta can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General --> Software update.


To install the update, the Apple Watch needs to have at least 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it has to be in range of the iPhone.

We don't yet know what features or improvements might be included in the watchOS 4.2.2 update, as no outward-facing changes were discovered in the first beta.

It's possible this update focuses mainly on bug fixes, and if that's the case, we won't know the extent of the changes until it sees a public release complete with release notes.

Should new features be discovered in the second watchOS 4.2.2 beta, we'll update this post.

And why can't they let streaming audio go to the watch speaker?

I have AirPods. I just would like to listen on the watch speaker instead sometimes.

Listen to music on the watch speaker? Are you serious? I certainly don’t want to do this. It’s a tiny speak that has terrible acoustics with zero base. No... just no!

Apple needs to do something with the Apple Watch series 3 with the lte I’m a truck driver and my Apple Watch is always some what connected to the phone which sucks cause I love streaming music but it barely works cause it’s always connected they should do a 5ft ratio on the watch cause there’s no point of having lte


What about the model without LTE? Also what about battery? iPhone should always connect where possible. LTE is a back up connection, not a first choice.

How is os 4 with apple watch 2?


In terms of battery life, it's about the same. I wouldn't say it's any faster or any slower, but I don't see any vast improvements.
