Apple Seeds Fourth Beta of watchOS 10 to Developers

Apple today seeded the fourth beta of an upcoming watchOS 10 update to developers for testing purposes, with the software update coming two weeks after the third beta.

Apple watchOS 10 Feature
To install the ‌watchOS 10‌ update, developers will need to open the Apple Watch app, go to the Software Update section under "General" in Settings, and toggle on the ‌watchOS 10‌ Developer Beta. Note that an Apple ID linked to a developer account is required.

Once beta updates have been activated, ‌watchOS 10‌ can be downloaded under the same Software Update section. To install software, an Apple Watch needs to have 50 percent battery life and it must be placed on an Apple Watch charger.

‌watchOS 10‌ adds a whole new widget-focused interface. You can access a widget stack from any watch face using the Digital Crown, swiping through them to get to relevant information. Control Center can be activated from any app by pressing the side button, and these new quick access controls are meant to let you use watch faces that support less information while still putting everything you need at your fingertips.

There are new Palette and Snoopy watch faces, updates to Cycling and Hiking workouts, and mental health integrations. Users can log their state of mind and mood using the Apple Watch, with the device providing insights into mental health over time.

All I ask for is battery improvements. The first 3 betas have been brutal.

I still can't believe we don't have the ability to swipe left/right to switch watch faces back yet. One of the things I currently hate about watchOS10.

I have never in my life "accidentally" changed faces. It's not a thing.
It absolutely is a thing and happens to me a lot.

I have a few times. But when I noticed it took me all of two seconds to swipe it back. I should probably just delete the extra faces but it really isn’t an issue I’m concerned about.

Makes sense to long press, then it’s not done accidentally
I welcome this change!

Saw a thread that some people are having issues with rings not filling. I'm waiting to see if that gets fixed first.
My rings aren't filling but that's a personal choice ?

I finally have refused to be enslaved by them.
