Apple Seeds Third Beta of watchOS 4.2.2 to Developers

Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming watchOS 4.2.2 update to developers, two weeks after seeding the second beta and a month 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 two betas.

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 third watchOS 4.2.2 beta, we'll update this post.

I still don’t understand why we cannot delete all messages on the watch in one shot.

And I can’t understand why the Apple Watch won’t alert with a sound or haptic when the iPhone is out of range.

maybe it will fix the erratic heart rate during workouts that 4.2 brought.

And I can't understand why they took away browsing/control of the on phone music library.

I second this. It’s horrible how they‘ve done it.
