Apple Seeds Fourth Beta of watchOS 9.1 to Developers

Apple today seeded the fourth beta of an upcoming watchOS 9.1 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new beta coming one week after Apple released the third watchOS 9.1 beta.

watchOS 9 Feature
To install ‌watchOS 9.1, developers will need to download the configuration profile from the Apple Developer Center. Once installed, ‌watchOS 9.1‌ can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General > Software update. To update to new software, an Apple Watch needs to have 50 percent battery life, it must be placed on the charger, and it needs to be in range of the ‌‌iPhone‌‌.

We don't yet know what's included in the watchOS 9.1 update as no new features have been found in the betas, but watchOS 9 brought a number of changes including a redesigned Compass app, a new medication tracking feature, updated watch faces, improvements to Workouts, new features for the ECG app, and more.

It shrinks it to a less ugly model.
You really are a sad person having to express your disgust all over these forums. We know you hate the ultra. Now go and troll somewhere else!

What happens if you install this on ultra
If you’re seriously asking that question, you probably shouldn’t be installing a beta on one of your primary devices

I would love for more watch faces like the Wayfinder. I use my Ultra in night mode almost all the time, day/night. Would be cool to have variations of that face with night mode available on other watch models too.

Been running the 9.1 beta since beta 2 on my ultra and it's been great, battery life has been the same as 9.0 which was also very good for me, 2.5 to 3 days usage before it would die.
