Apple Seeds Fifth Beta of watchOS 5.2 to Developers

Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming watchOS 5.2 update to developers, one week after seeding the fourth watchOS 5.2 beta and over a month after releasing watchOS 5.1.3.

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.

The watchOS 5.2 update introduces a set of new Hermès watch faces. The watch faces are available in pink and blue, and feature a gradient-style design that changes much like other Hermès watch faces. There are customizable numbers and an option for a single complication.


There were no other major changes discovered in watchOS with the release of the first four, but we'll update this post should we find new features or major tweaks worth noting in the fifth. We may not know the full extent of the changes in watchOS 5.2 until we get a public release with Apple's release notes.

Are these watch faces excludes to Hermes? I’m asking because I just bought an Apple Watch Hermes today, it will suck if Hermes watch faces are available on any Apple Watch.

Yes all of the Hermes watch faces are exclusive to the Hermes branded apple watches and always will, same goes for the Nike apple watches only they have access to the Nike watch faces.

Enjoy your new watch :)
