Apple Releases New watchOS 4.3.2 Software for Apple Watch

Apple today released watchOS 4.3.2, a small update to the watchOS 4 operating system that runs on the Apple Watch. watchOS 4.3.2 comes more than one month after the release of watchOS 4.3.1, a minor update.

watchOS 4.3.2 can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General --> Software Update. To install the new software, the Apple Watch needs to have at least 50 percent battery, it needs to be placed on a charger, and it needs to be in range of the iPhone.


As a 4.x.x update, watchOS 4.3.2 is minor in scale, focusing on bug fixes and under the hood performance improvements. No major new features were discovered during the beta testing period.

watchOS 4.3.2 may be one of the last updates to the watchOS 4 operating system now that Apple has shifted its focus to watchOS 5. watchOS 5 is available to developers and will see a public release this fall.

Introduced at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June, watchOS 5 brings a push-to-talk Walkie-Talkie mode, support for automatic workout detection, a Podcasts app, new features for the Siri watch face, and more. For full details on what's coming in watchOS 5, make sure to check out our watchOS 5 roundup.

Is there anyone else that can't check for this update that's running iOS 12 on their iPhone? It gives me the popup "Could Not Connect to Apple Watch" when I try to check for this... But my watch is definitely connected to my iPhone

* Delete the Beta Profile from the iPhone
* Reboot the iPhone
* You now can install watchOS 4.3.2
* Install the Beta Profile again on your iPhone
* Reboot your iPhone

I was frustrated with this not working until I realized you maybe meant to remove the iOS 12 beta profile from the phone - and then it worked like a charm! Until then, I was removing the Watch beta profile from the phone!
