Apple Seeds Fifth Beta of watchOS 4.2.2 to Developers

Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming watchOS 4.2.2 update to developers, 10 days after seeding the fourth beta and more than 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 four 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 fifth watchOS 4.2.2 beta, we'll update this post.

I would like to be able to stream through my watch speaker, and web browse too.

That is all.

The interesting thing is, you named the two things I would not care to use my watch for. Have you tried AirPods with the watch? Now that is fantastic. The beach this fall was watch LTE, AirPods, and a few good playlists. My phone stayed in the condo so nothing to worry about besides a cooler and chair.

Didn't have to many issues during this round of betas. Really just waiting to see what enhancements show up in OS5.
