Apple Seeds Second Beta of watchOS 7.1 to Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming watchOS 7.1 update to public beta testers, two days after providing the beta to developers.

The ‌watchOS 7‌.1 update can be downloaded after installing the proper profile from Apple's Public Beta website. Once the profile is in place, the ‌‌‌‌watchOS 7.1‌‌‌‌ beta can be downloaded through the dedicated ‌Apple Watch‌ app on the iPhone by going to General > Software Update.

To update to the new software, the ‌Apple Watch‌ needs to have 50 percent battery life, it must be placed on the charger, and it must be in range of the ‌‌‌‌‌iPhone‌‌‌‌‌.

There were no new features discovered in the first two betas of watchOS 7.1, so we don't yet know what new additions may be included in the update. It likely focuses on under-the-hood improvements and bug fixes for issues that weren't able to be addressed in the initial ‌watchOS 7‌ release.

Today's update does re-enable blood oxygen monitoring and watch faces that were disabled in the prior beta update.

7.1 Beta 2 Public Beta is a mess. Don’t download on a Series 5 watch. This is the first Public Beta that I have had issues with. Already wishing for Beta 3. Avoid putting a MeMoji on your watch or it will cause constant resets of the watch. After removing the MeMoji watch face, the resets stopped. Tried a system reset, same issue after pairing again. It also messes up the Unlock My Mac option, which there is an online fix for that.

Any new watch face? Or just the Memoji one?

I’ve heard about many issues with the Memoji face.
Memoji mainly. It reboots when you cycle the watch faces.. feels it’s allergic to Memoji ?

Hopefully this will fix the major Resting Energy problems. Can't believe what a mess watchOS 7.0 and 7.0.1 have been.
